Answered: [VEX U] Servos in 3rd party sensor

Hi, had a question about the use of Servos.

Is the use of 3rd-party servos or even VEX motors as part of an entire sensor construction legal? And with VEX motors, do these count against our total limit.

We want to be able to have a Camera mounted on our bot that is able to pan and tilt. Would the use of servos connected to this and then to an offboard processor such as an Arduino which is connected to the Cortex be ok?

Thank you,


Provided that these servos are only for panning and tilting the camera, and not used for any other function, they are legal. If the inspectors or referees determine they are serving some other function on the robot, they will be disallowed.

Thanks Karthik!

You’re welcome!
