Thought I’d share the new pan-and-tilt I recently installed on Charlie. . .
Here’s the side view showing Charlie’s new pan-and-tilt.
And here’s Charlie peeking at us sideways!
This will become part of the Remote Camera Robot project where I can actively change the robot’s point of view, (look around), while driving.
Of course that is after you are the master POV programmer.
Oh, don’t be a wimp! Go for the Gold! Why not include GPS tracking and “return home”, along with Stratum-1 time accuracy - and a half-dozen motors that can be used to turn Charlie in to The Flying
I’ll be tickled pink all over if I can get the blasted thing to respond to my joystick. If I can return confirming status messages from the robot to the browser - it’ll be like I hit the Lottery!
A HUD overlay on the screen? I’m not holding my breath for that one, though the nipple.js source might be interesting since the nipple is - in a sense - an overlay on the image.
If I can get my initial goals accomplished, I’ll be a happy camper!
