I'm looking for parts to build a remote control type robot with two color cameras and two tilt-and-pan platforms to hold them. I would like to be able to control the cameras from software running on my desktop. I need at least 10 fps (pulse-per-frame, not free-running). I'd like 1024x1024 non-interpeaved pixels or more, but I'll settle for 640x480 if I have to (prefer raw/lossless compression, but JPG is acceptable). To help simplify the software, I would also like to be able to tell the cameras exactly when to capture a frame, both to keep them synchronized to within a few milliseconds or less and to avoid capturing images when the tilt-pan platform is moving.
I'm planning to add motors, wheels and a quite a few more sensors later, but I only need the cameras and the tilt-pan setup at first.
WiFi is probably best, although Bluetooth might be OK if it can support the range (50 to 60 ft) and data rate.
I've been a realtime/embedded software engineer for decades, but this is my first robotics project. Any suggestions on parts, suppliers, software, etc, would be most appreciated. Cost is always a factor, but quality and ease of use are important, too.
