Hi, im fairly new to arduino and im not the best at coding.I am trying to build a project but I have no idea on how to start.Id like to have a dslr camera track someone who is wearing a bracelet.I was thinking two gps modules/ arduino (One for bracelet, one for camera mount)Then a stepper motor and a 3d printed gear to will turn the camera. I have a rough concept of how the electronics can be wired, but my problem is Ive got no clue how to code it....Any tips? Thanks!Also Ive never worked with gps modules so ive got no clue how to use them, maybe this is a basic build that im overthinking? I hope sothanks again!
We are left to guess how far away the camera and bracelet are. And as to whether its outdoors or indoors. One of the keys to sucess in a project is beaing able to cleary describe what it is you are trying to do.
Sorry, for some reason I just assumed you guys would be able to read my mind about this project hahaha.To clarify, it will be a about 800m to 1200m away from the camera, which will be outdoors panning left to right no zoom no tilt or pitch, just panning in order to track the wristband on a flat desert open terrain.
Well that will be OK, at those distances position errors from the GPS (which are normal) will not have a significant affect.. I have designed system that receives GPS co-ordinates from a remote (and small) tracker transmitter via LoRa and uses a handheld receiver with its own GPS and display to give you a distance and direction between the two. In lots of practical tests the accuracy is around 1 degree .........The direction is true North, so you need to know the local magnetic declination to use a compass to know which direction to go searching.
Heres is almost exactly what I would like to create, but Ive got no idea how to start,
