Hand Shadow

Arduino Project with 6 servo and 6 flex sensor for hand robotic shadow.

Version 2.0


Version 1.0




  • PIN =2;        // thumb
  • PIN= 3;         // index
  • PIN= 4;         // ring
  • PIN= 5;         // anular
  • PIN= 6;         // pinky
  • PIN= 7;         // rotation thumb

( from PIN to Groud)

  • analogPIN =2;        // thumb
  • analogPIN= 3;         // index
  • analogPIN= 4;         // ring
  • analogPIN= 5;         // anular
  • analogPIN= 6;         // pinky

    which arduino is used ...... cant u provide schematics

    • ReplyLeonardo

      Arduino UNO. I try to post schematichs soon.

    what is the value for the flex sensors ?

    • ReplyLeonardo

      Straight (unflexed) resistance: ~9000 Ohm 90 degree bend resistance: ~14000 Ohm 180 degree bend resistance : ~22000 Ohm

    What about connecting to continious servos? Would it works?

    • ReplyLeonardo

      Why continious servos ? Yes work but not essential.

    I've assembled everything while still waiting on the Arduino UNO to arrive. To you have the schematics for the perfboard? Or if you could just say what ports you put the servos and flex sensors in? Thanks a ton.
