Re: 360 degree camera

Hi all, I actually found a solution, which seems will suit my need, so I'm posting it here - maybe someone will like it. First you'll need to buy a special board to convert nicelly flat ribbon for Raspberry camera to a gpio output (yes). I've found one here: http://www.bitwizard.nl/cat/product_info....

Re: 360 degree camera

Hi,

Thank you for suggestion - I also thought about it, but to be honest it's kind of crutch, because it makes camera and rotation bulky and heavy...

360 degree camera

Hi all, I'm trying to find a solution in creating a 360 degree free rotating camera. The main problem is of course - ribbon cable, due to after a couple of turns it will obviously become a problem. I've discovered Slip Rings and they seems to fit idea nicely, but they all have no ribbon cables, but ...

Re: Camera Module Multiplexer (Switcher)

Actually the solution you looking for exists now! So funding campaign was successful and you can buy a fully functional module!
Simply use Ivmech:

Re: Driving multiple servos from the RaspberryPi

Hi,

Thanks a lot it did work wel!!!
Thank you very much!! Will see if I can drive servos without any additional Adafruit Board!

PS: I've just found a strange notice from another post here about "sed" command - it's a kind of "grep" - search and find text.

Re: Connect Motor controller and Raspberry PI via GPIO?

Well, thanks for reply, first of all. But I didn't actually expect any answer, because it was kinda sharing an updates/upgrades I got. So making it simple, yes, you can control a lot of DC/Servo motors using some small extensions for Raspberry, for example I'm using "Adafruit 16-Channel 12-bit PWM/S...

Re: Connect Motor controller and Raspberry PI via GPIO?

Well, after a while I figured out 1 PWM output of Raspberry is not an option for controlling robots. So I continued my search and... got a very beautiful solution from Adafruit.com: http://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-16-channel-servo-driver-with-raspberry-pi/ Size of the extra board is really small ...

Re: I2C 16 Channel PWM/Servo Breakout - Working

Hi, I was just about to give up on my idea to use Raspberry as a heart and brain for my robot project, but randomly found your post! It looks like it's exactly what I needed to make my robot move and even add a servo to move it's camera using Linux, not real-time OS! If I may ask - did you accomplis...

Connect Motor controller and Raspberry PI via GPIO?

Hi all, I've an idea about creating a wheeled robot with webcam controlled over internet using RPI as it's main board. At the moment I'm stacked trying to make my robot move. I've got Sabertooth 2X12 R/C connected to motors and powered up also I've go Raspberry Pi up and running, but I've no clue ho...
