Controlling a Maestro in C using a Raspberry Pi

Posted by Brandon on 22 August 2013

Shahmir Javaid tweeted about a tutorial he wrote that describes how he used a Raspberry Pi to control a Maestro servo controller in C. His tutorial documents the steps he took, including setting up the Raspberry Pi for UART, wiring, and programming. The setup is simple, and the code is provided.

This link doesn't work. Is there another resource that you suggest to control a mini-maestro from a raspberry pi?
Hello, Lesley B.

Another customer recently shared a blog post with us that contains a breakdown of the code from Shahmir Javaid's blog post. You can find the blog here.

There are also some customer-contributed examples in the "Related Resources" section of the Maestro user's guide with code for using a Raspberry Pi to control a Maestro that you might find helpful.
