Assignment: Servo Output with Arduino and Touch Sensor

Step 1: Test Schematic

Step 2: Add Touch Sensor

Broken Arduino?

Reflections:

Although this was the lab I had the least trouble with, in my creative application I found that my Arduino had a hard time connecting to my breadboard. I tried 2 different breadboards, various wires, and even tried the circuit with an Arduino Uno, all with no luck. Once I’m able to troubleshoot the problems with both Arduinos, I hope to apply my circuit to a bigger project that lifts and drops various materials.
