Week 14 Journal entry by J Lara

We worked in installing the servos into the bunny’s head to make the ears flap when the servos are actuated. I had to use cardboard and tie both servos to a housing I cut out of cardboard. I tied both servos back to back simulating the ears, and secured them with electrical tape. The challenge now is to keep the servos in place, and to fit them to the area of the head of the bunny. Again this part is all up to the Bunny owner, since we have no access to the bunny outside of class. The action of the servos involves great force, for this reason they need to be secured in place. If not they will not be able to create the effect we seek, the servos will move out of place and the ears won’t flap.
