Mini Rover with Camera


 
Project Overview
Mini Rover Vehicle with Remote Camera

A small vehicle constructed from fischertechnik components.

The mini rover vehicle can be controlled by a Palm PDS device or connected to a Macintosh computer.

A remote color camera is attached to the vehicle body. The camera position can be controlled by a Palm PDS device or connected to a Macintosh computer.

The Mini Rover Vehicle and Camera are connected to a Mini SSC II or SV203 interface.

Power to the rover motion servos, camera position servos and camera are provided by a wall transformer and cable.

Video signals from the camera are sent by cable to a small monitor or Macintosh video input.

Future modification is to make the vehicle, and camera video wireless.

Model Motion Platform

 Project Overview
Model Motion Platform 

 

Servo controller platform with Pitch, Roll and Yaw motion capabilities.

Each servo is connected to the Mini SSC II interface or SV203 and is controlled by the Macintosh Servo Control Software for the Macintosh computer.

A model is mounted to the motion platform base, and programmed for motion.

A video camera is mounted near the model motion platform, where movements of the model are recorded for editing into multimedia productions.

Note. The base is painted in croma-key blue for video editing.

Project Overview

Mini Remote Camera with Position Control

Servo controller micro camera with Pitch, and Yaw motion capabilities.

Each servo is connected to the Mini SSC II or SV203 interface, and is controlled by the Macintosh Servo Control Software or Camera Controller Software for the Macintosh computer.

 

The mini camera can also be controlled by a Palm PDA device connected to the Mini SSC II or SV203 interface and servos.

Using all batteries to operate the Mini SSC II, SV203 Servos, and a Palm PDA device makes the unit very portable and usable in different environments.
