Translation by Dan Albert of sjrobotics.org available here.
Partial translation to English of the ICS servo protocol. Standard RC-type servos expect a PWM signal at 50Hz of 1.5±0.5ms width that define which angle the servo has to be at: 0±90°.
ICS servos can also change between 3 predefined parameter sets and return the current value of the potentiometer when they receive shorter PWM width. ICS servos can double as collision sensors!
