Hold Motor Angles

This example demonstrates how to make the Joint module motors move to a specific set of angles and hold the pose.


  • Dongle
  • Fable module with identifier QQA


This first program uses an infinate loop to repeatly command the joint module to go to a specific set of angles. The module will holds its angles for 10 seconds after which it will timeout and shot down the motors to save battery.

This seconds program demonstrates how to keep the module from timing out after 10 seconds. This can be done by reading the angles of a motor on the module back, and it this case plot the angles as a function of time.

In both cases the program is stopped by pressing the red stop button.
