I'm building a camera dolly using Arduino Uno, and before getting started I would like to know whether my plan is even possible.
I will be using a moving head which will require DMX to be put in. I've found a DMX shield TinkerKit DMX Shield LINK, which I would like to use. I can output a value to DMX via Arduino right? (with that shield).
Then some other things, I would like to use a PlayStation or Xbox controller or something like that. I've seen that working when people use a USB Host Shield. I guess that should work as well right?
But I would also like there to be some output to a screen. I found an app called Blynk which should be able to do that perfectly fine. That does require a Wifi Shield though. That would mean stacking 3 shields on the Arduino Uno.
Now the big question, would that work or not? I'm quite new to Arduino but have quite a lot of programming experience, so programming wise I will be fine.
My concerns are:
- Stacking 3 shields on each other
- The functioning of the DMX Shield
- Having multiple inputs maybe influencing each other
- The reliability of everything put together.
Thanks a lot for answering, getting some conformation or bad news would help me out a lot!
