Coming soon: TiltPan Micro Camera Arduino Shield

2 years ago Enrico 380

The next project will be published, soon available on Tindie.com is the TiltPan Micro Camera Arduino Shield. In the following video you can see the prototype on-the-move.

TiltPan Assembled 3Main features

  • Dual-axis tilt and pan 180 Deg movement with micro servos
  • Board shield arduino compatible with Duemilanove, Diecimila, Arduino UNO R1/R2
  • include a full HD micro camera
  • Shooting and video saved on the camera micro SD (up to 32Gb)
  • Arduino library provided with the shield (under development)
  • Can be easily adapted to other cameras
  • Full camera control (power, shooting mode, etc.)
  • Can capture time-lapse variable sequences
  • Independent power supply for the camera and servos
  • Can capture semi-spherical panoramas (need separate stictch software to assemble the image)
  • Independent axis movement in the sequences (tilt-only, pan-only) or synchronized movement (tilt-pan together)
  • More options and features are under testing

Test example

The video below shows a sequence only created with the device.

Test settings

  • One shoot every 4 seconds
  • First move from left-bottom to up-right, 1 Deg step on the longer axis (pan rotation)
  • Second move from the previous position to the middle position, pan rotation only, 1 Deg step
  • 512 frames shoot in the same position
