Hello all,
I'm new to the use of servo motors. I will like to request you all to provide me with the information so as to the Servo motors available and their specifications. Motors will be used in robots like line follower.

Line followers do not need servo motors, but you can use a servo modified for continuous rotation. Servo motors have limited speed, and normally, cant go more than 180 degrees.

However, you can use servo motors for steering.

thank you allbits for your reply.................how would a brushless dc servomotor suffice?

It seems you have browsed a bit in some sites relating to aeromodelling..

If it is line follower, or a beginners robot you are trying to make, go for dc geared motors. that would suffice.
