I have LEDs lighting up, I can use RPi.GPIO to fade them etc. I can control servos, I've used the example that I was given from Joan and I finally got the board working from adafruit so I have options and I just got an adafruit Audio FX sound module that is working nicely.
However, I just tried to put servos and lights together, and I had servos twitching (instead of moving in nice ranged movements) and lights flashing (instead of fading in/out). I'll assume because they were fighting for resources (no threading just yet). I'm using the adafruit library for controlling the servos for now (fewer connections to the raspberry pi), and the RPi.GPIO library for controlling the LEDs.
I tried to thread the lights, no difference although threading is something I rarely ever use in my professional development, python is a whole new game, so I wouldn't be shocked if I screwed that up somehow.
Ultimately, sensors will play into this and I'll want to trigger things, but for now if I could just get servos to move and lights to glow that would be great. I'm not looking for the code, maybe I just need to go and learn a bit more about threading and resource sharing. Any thoughts?
