    I have a UDOO Neo board and AX-12 A motor, I want to control the motor by Python code.
    Tha cable has 3 pins and I don't know in which pins on the board I should connect them to.
    And you will do a favor If you give a sample code in Python that helps me in this.

    Interesting concept these servo's. Look here for more information about connecting and using Python to activate them http://bfy.tw/AkXM
    No information about Udoo's, I guess you have to modify some libraries yourself

    These servos use Dynamixel's propriety half serial interface, so firstly you need to provide a hardware interface to the neo serial port similar to what is covered in this article (note the pins neo are 3.3v tolerant). Given there are problems with UART6, to run this on the linux side you will need to re assign UART5 for this to work. This is definitely not for the novice.
