Servo - write()

Writes a value to the servo, controlling the shaft accordingly. On a standard servo, this will set the angle of the shaft (in degrees), moving the shaft to that orientation. On a continuous rotation servo, this will set the speed of the servo (with 0 being full-speed in one direction, 180 being full speed in the other, and a value near 90 being no movement).




  • servo: a variable of type Servo
  • angle: the value to write to the servo, from 0 to 180


#include <Servo.h>

Servo myservo;

void setup()
  myservo.write(90);  // set servo to mid-point

void loop() {}
