Autonomous servo switcher

Posted on Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011 in PIC, robotics by SQKYbeaver

Simon has created an servo switcher for use on autonomous vehicles. designed to allow manual control if the autonomous controller fails. Using a pic12f683 and 4066 analog switch. source code and board files are available on his website.

    Instead of stacking multiple 4066/4016 quad analog switches for additional channels, it might make more sense to use 2:1, 4:1 or 8:1 mux chips. This would certainly require fewer redundant connections. Candidates would be the 4353/4053 2:1, 4852/4052 4:1, or even the 4351/4051 8:1 mux.
