Arduino + Nunchuck + Pan and Tilt Camera

Using an Arduino Diecimila board to let a Nintendo Wii Nunchuck control a camera mounted on a “pan&tilt” mechanism with two servos. Nunchuck’s accelerometer (an ADXL330) is used to move the camera. If the Nunchuck’s “Z” button is pressed, the camera position is locked.

    That is the best thing EVER 😛 would be awesome to see it with a video feed from the camera side by side 😛

  2. Fantastic …
    Fantastic apllication, do you realise what sollution you build for people with a fycical handicap which cannot move there hands.With this project people can move with their head and move a robot arm to pick up objects.
    I love this application Compliments Nigel

    @VALKIR4636 When processing the data from the nunchuck try using an average from the last three readings, it will add a slight delay but should compensate for such hiccups.

  4. Nice! How did you …
    Nice! How did you make the pan&tilt mechanism? Did you just glue the servo’s together?

  5. You could attach a …
    You could attach a device like this to a snowboarding helmet, including a nunchuck, and smooth out the movements of your head. So just filming straight down the hill.

  6. sigh, it moves so …
    sigh, it moves so fluent … mine just jerks arround altho I use smoothing for the output 🙁 can u give me some pointers on how I can reduce these “hiccups” ?

    you suld do a mod here :when you dont press button camera don’t move when you press you can move no?but it is realy good great job

    i’m making a robot with front, back, left, rifgt, controls, controlled with the nuncuk’s analog stick, and a pan&tilt camera holder on top, controlled by the accelarometer 🙂

    oh and it will be wireless 😀

    long term project though, still have to buy another arduino…

    Very nifty I’m working on something to control a robotic arm with a Wii nunchuck…similar idea
