After a long hiatus on group projects, we are starting up a new project to build smart servos, based on modified hobby RC servos. The basic idea is to make a PCB with a microcontroller and some motor drivers to fit into a standard sized hobby servo. We might even try to fit into a mini servo case as well. We hope to add continuous rotation and position sensing via AMS magnetic position encoders, but those features may come on a later revision of the board. If you are interested in participating in this project, go to the Servo Project Brainstorming page and start adding your ideas and comments.
