Here it is! With this Made from scratch Servo Pod, you can now control your webcam (or wifi antenna ?) by the palm of your hand or even remotly with a web server.
Step 1: Get all the parts and tools
1 x Microchip pic16f628(a) (free sample from microchip, don't abuse...)
1 x Dip socket for pic
5 x 4.7kOhm resistor (or 5 "pullup" resistor)
1 x 22kOhm reisistor
1 x serial port plug
2 x Servo Motor (any 5v model witch is powerful enought to hold the webcam)
2 x 3pin plug for your servo
1 x Led
4 x push button
1 x switch
1 x Breadboard
1 x Soldering iron
1 x Pic Programmer (cheap on ebay or Diy)
1 x Webcam ?
Step 2: Flash the Pic
Look on the picture for the basic config.
Step 3: Soldering
Note : the 4 pushbutton are used for "joystick" mode. You should wire them ..on a another board with a cable.
The button wire like this :
rb0 Left (might be right..)
rb1 Right (migth be left...)
The led is used to show joystick mode, you might want to have it remotly on the joystick board. ALSO NOTE !!! I used a internal resistor 5v led. Add a resistor if your led is not like mine (100ohm should be OK)
Your servo pin could not be the same as mine (1-5v, 2-Signal, 3-Ground) change for your need.
You need a 5v Power source
R1 to 5 = 4.7kOhm
R6 : 22kOhm
J1 = Pan J2 = Tilt
