Continuous servo

Continuous servo looks the same as a standard servo, but it’s capable of rotating continuous like a normal motor. You can not control which angle it’s pointing to, but you can specify how fast it spins, and in which direction.


  • 1 Arduino Uno board
  • 1 Basic Education shield
  • 1 continuous servo


  1. Connect the servo to TinkerKit port digital 9.

Open Example>BasicEducationShield>Help>ContinuousServo from Arduino IDE.

/*  ContinuousServo
#include <BasicEducationShield.h>
#include <Servo.h>
Servo me;

void setup(){

void loop(){
//Make the servo rotate in speed 120.


This sketch will make the servo rotate in the speed 120. You can use a speed between 0 and 180. 180 is fastet speed in one direction and 0 fastest speed in the opposite direction. 90 should make it stand still. This exact value is slightly different for each servo so you need to test it.

It’s not working?

  1. Make sure you’ve connected the servo to the same pin as you’ve stated in the code.
