Motoring a Webcam

Things to Buy


  1. The first thing you need to buy is a webcam.  I personally recommend a Logitech Quickcam Pro 4000.

  3. Once you have the webcam, you need to buy the servo motors and the phidget device.  I recommend getting the 4-Motor PhidgetServo Kit.

  4. For the Pan and Tilt you should buy the Servomotor X-Y Axis Mount from Images SI, Inc.

  5. Next, you need to get a Project Enclosure so to mount the camera and motors on.  Also the Project enclosure will hold the Phidget device.  I just picked up a plastic one from radioshack.

  6. The last thing you should buy is a anti-slide sheet.  You can get one from shopco or wal-mart in the car department.  It just prevents the motors from tipping over if they slide too fast.
