I am interested in setting up something similar to this: Super Simple Gimbal Design. The reason being that I could actively correct the video camera position deviations due to proposing, tilting, water current changes, etc..
I need a sanity check in getting started.
Adding a servo to the 2.5 board should use an Analog In, Ground, and 5V. No special additional circuitry is required. Correct?
Will code similar to this provide read access to the telemetry? If not where should I start?
void loop for the X axis:
sensorValX = analogRead(sensorXPin);
sensorValX = constrain(sensorValX, calibrateXMin, calibrateXMax);
tiltX = map(sensorValX, calibrateXMin, calibrateXMax, 0, 179);
servoValX = constrain(servoValX - (tiltX - 89),0,179);
Add a servo to roll the camera CCW and CW. Write a script controlling both camera rotation and roll via
Several of my friends have commented that watching OpenRov cockpit video is often disorienting, makes them sick, or dizzy. They comment on the activation of controls causing jerks and the porposing. Also I've seen several videos where the camera angle appears to be tilted or the craft is not level.
