macePod - The procession project Answered

Hi Art+Tech lovers

Is it possible to track a simple object and calculate it's distance with an Arduino + (Arduino-)camera. I would use a simple tele lens so the distance between the camera and the object can range between 0.5 and 10 meters. The camera can be mounted on 2 servo motors for pan-tilt movement. Everything sits on top of a 2m pole, carried by a person. 

And best wishes for 2016!

Hi Downunder

I saw some ultrasonic sensors that do 7 meters. They also should be on a pan-tilt system and I wonder how large the object should be..

Optical not without a reference not to mention the coding of a tracking algorithm as you would need to process the image.
For the distance I would use ultrasonic transducers but for optical tracking I am a bit at a loss here.
