If I want to control a pan/tilt camera on the UGV, will that be possible with a normal 6 channel transmitter like this?:
It will be something like this:
-The right joystick is for going left or right with the UGV(horizontal control)
-The left joystick is for going forward or backward(vertical control)
Now I have only the following left to use:
-The right joystick(vertical control)
-The left joystick(horizontal control)
-So, would it be possible that when I put the left or right switch, the left joystick controls the camera, but doesn't control going left or right anymore?
I assume that the Arduino is the best way to do something like this, but then there is another problem: The Arduino should be able to remote control things on the UGV when the UGV is 500 meters away from me.
I don't want to use the right switch to turn the camera right, and the left switch to turn the camera to the left, because I'll lose the switches for something else then.
Maybe am I thinking to difficult, and is there a much more easy way to control a pan/tilt system?
Or, maybe I should get a transmitter with more channels?
