Raspberry Pi enthusiasts looking for a way to control the position of a camera, arm, pointer or similar may be interested in a new project published on the Hackster.io website this week by MJRoBot. Providing easy to follow instructions on how to create your very own servo controlled camera mount using multiple servos working simultaneously together, thanks to a little Python programming and a laser cut pan and tilt mechanism.
Once created the pan and tilted mount can be used with the official Raspberry Pi camera, and the full system can be built in approximately eight hours thanks to the complete instructions provided by the project page this week. The project is classed as “Easy” and should allow almost anyone with a little Raspberry Pi knowledge to create their very own and control the direction of their camera.
For more information jump over to the Hackster.io website wearer a full list of all required components are listed, in addition to the required Pi 3 Model B, Raspberry Pi Camera module and RobotGeek 180 Degree Robot Servo needed to move the arm.
