Picture of Joystick controlled Camera
Hi,
First of all, my English is not perfect =)

I've seen many projects with Arduino that describes how to control 2 servo's with a joystick or use a lcd screen. All of the projects that i have seen are all seperate things. So i decided to make a short Instructable of these things combined. In this instructable is everything you need! Drawings, schematics, pictures and even the Complete Code that i've mostly written! This project is made on a breadboard because i just didn't have the time to make this in a nice shining aluminum box  :O

In the picture above you see the camera mounted in two aluminum brackets for the servo's. I have a instructable for that too!!!
Check it out!

So...

Enjoy! =)

Step 1: Parts

Picture of Parts
Here is a list of all the parts you need.
  • Arduino uno / Mega
  • Breadboard
  • jumper wires
  • Joystick
  • 20*4 LCD Display
  • 2 servo's
  • 10Kohm potentiometer
  • NPN transistor (BC547B)
  • 6 volt battery or power supply

Step 2: Wiring

Picture of Wiring
Hook up all the wires according to the picture.
I've made this circuit in Fritzing. It is very easy to use and even has multiple Arduino's in it. Basic components are all there.

(I wanted to upload my own frtizing file but i could'nt succeed :( )

Can you edit the code and upload it to pastebin so I don't need to use the screen?

Can't you copy the code on this page?

Can I use a simple digital camera?
markie (author)  nyatuv1 year ago
Yes you can, I recommend to make something like in the picture. In this way your camera has more support then when its only attached to the side of the servo.

How did you built the cam mount and what cam do you used?

Here's the link to my instructable for the cam mount :)

And for the Camera i used the Sentient Wired Camera. You can mount any cam or laser if you want, just re-design the mount attached to the servo.
