Misc / Instructables - Robotic Camera Dolly System
« Last post by ServoCity on April 17, 2014, 01:28:39 PM »
The Instructables team did an awesome job of designing and implementing this robotic camera dolly system.  To view a complete build log/video and parts list visit http://www.instructables.com/id/Robotic-Camera-Dolly-System/.

The Robotic Camera Dolly System has these key features:
- The ability for real-time filming and stop motion photography.
- It is controllable via an easy-to-use touch screen.
- The system can pan, tilt and drive at the same time.
- All actions are repeatable thanks to servo motors and a DC drive motor with a rotary encoder.
- The dynamic Actobotics build system and open source Arduino-based hardware, allows it to be fully customizable to meet your own needs.

do you know the name of software?

I already included the name of the software to use for developing this in my answer. It is not a "ready made" solution, though.

superdroid robots has a network control package that comes with everything you need to control your robot from around the world
it costs ONLY $1k !!!

You will need to do two things:

1) You will need a microcontroller that is powerful enough to run a web server of some kind. Typically this is a Raspberry Pi, or an Odroid, or a BeagleBone Black. On this microcontroller, run some web server software that can also communicate with the robot systems. Starting with node.js or Python SimpleHTTPServer might make things simpler.

2) You will need a way to address the robot. This means you need a static IP address that maps to the robot. If the robot is behind a firewall/router of some sort (which most things are these days) this means you need to set up port forwarding on that router/firewall to go to the robot. That, in turn, may need other network administration (allocating a static DHCP lease, etc.)

Is this an RC hobby servo? OR some industrial servo?

If hobby servo then just do a google search on "RC hobby servo" for lots and lots of info about how they work and example code to control them from a processor.
If an industrial servo then you must study the data sheet for that servo.

I want to control robot via internet using computer

many microcontroller have tcp/ip protocol. microcontroller can communicate with computer using Internet

Computer → Internet → 100km distance  →Internet TCP/IP micro controller

when  I will open web browser like firefox, google chrome then what is next step for me

which software I need to use to control robot using computer  via internet?
Electronics / Connecting servo motor to mbed processor
« Last post by PBG on April 14, 2014, 01:09:13 PM »
Hello! I am currently doing a project where I have to drive a small servo motor from an mbed processor. However, only the supply voltage of the motor is given as 4.8-6V but not the pulse. when connected directly to the processor, the motor doe not operate and hence I guess I need an external circuitry to interface the two. A bjt amplifer can be fine but since the motor is a three wire one I do not know how to connect it and what are the external components and their sizes required. Can anyone please help me perhaps with a circuit diagram?

That makes sense.  Thanks for the tips!  No independent wealth here.  :)

Hey - any robot books or tutorials that you recommend to support this project?
