I'm starting a new project, but I'm not really sure which products I will need. Maybe someone could help me with it, I've googled to much..
The plan: I'll get coordinates from a videofeed and with those coordinates a camera will be pointed onto that direction accordingly. The camera will be aimed at the right coordinates with a pan-tilt module. On the pan-tilt module will be around 200 to 400 grams of weight. When the camera is aimed at that right direction, it will track an object and send new coordinates to the pan-tilt module to keep tracking it.
Minimum requirements: The pan motor needs to be able to spin at least 360 degrees. The tilt motor needs to be able to spin at least 100 degrees. Turn 200 to 400 grams of weights Relative fast turning
- (Which) Servo's or Steppers? Steppers can give feedback about their current position right?
- What kind of pan-tilt bracket will be suitable? Or where can I find information about this?
- Do I need a Motor board controller/driver for servo's/steppers?
- Do I need extra external power for the motors?
- Am I missing something?
I would really like to hear your thoughts!
