OBJECT TRACKING CAMERA SLIDER:
This is a remotely controlled (open source) CAMERA SLIDER with tracking system. Two motors will be in charge of moving a platform where you can attach your smartphone/GOPRO or DSLR camera to and, at the same time, pan it tracking and object.

You just have to let the robot know the location of the object to be filmed and the Arduino will calculate in real time what to do in order to keep the target always in the center of the camera view.

Once the moving platform (with the camera) reaches the end of the rail, it will decelerate and come back to the original position, swinging on and on until you decide to stop it.

Remotely controlled using your smartphone or tablet (WIFI).
The robot can be controlled from your own smartphone/tablet using the freely available APP. You can even control its speed in real time.

Perfect for Time-Lapse videos, to create artistic presentations, to show different point of views during a webcam call/ demonstration video.

FEATURES:
FEATURES:
-Motorized CAMERA SLIDER
-Tracking object capable: learn more here
-Remotely control it using your smartphone/tablet via the free jjRobots APP
-Movement speed variable in real time from the smartphone
-Delayed start (15 sec): get enough time to place your smartphone on the moving platform before it starts to move
-Make it portable: can use regular AA batteries  battery holder (or a 3 cells LIPO battery)
-Suitable for GOPRO/ DSLR/SLR cameras and any smartphone.
-Minimum moving speed: 0.01 mm/sec (perfect for time lapsed videos)
-Open Source / Arduino based: the code, 3D parts and electronics are 100% open. Feel free to modify everything is you need to.


Check out some videos here and how it works here: https://www.jjrobots.com/camera-slider-t...d-printed/

This robot uses the same electronics and motors you would need to create the:
Air Hockey Robot
Sphere-O-Bot (eggbot MOD)
iBoardbot
B-robot EVO 2
(and more to come...)

Get tired of one robot? Create another just printing the 3D parts!

Everything is modifiable: this is an Arduino based OPEN SOURCE robot

What you need to print:
Print the parts as indicated in the image above.
If you want to just attach a DSLR camera, print:
· Pulley
· TOP PLATE
· Carriage
· MOTOR legs
· Pulley legs
· 10 teeth Gear <- Print it with 100% infill

If you want to use your smartphone or a GOPRO to create videos you will need to print too:
· Adapter SLIDER
. Adapter NUT CAP
. SMARTPHONE/COPRO_Universal_Adapter

Are all the files (including libraries) in the same folder?

Hello
I put all files in the same folder.
C:\Users\user\Documents\Arduino\libraries\CameraSlider_v4

And works
Thank you *****
Hello
something happened to the wifi network of the brain shield, when I turn on the arduino, it flashes a blue light one time and very fast from the plate brain shield and it turns off, and a green light is turned on in the arduino, and I can not find the wifi network of the brain shield, and before I was able to pick up the network with my android, not now. I already programmed the arduino and even then the network does not appear to me.

The short blink in the WIFI module is normal. Just during the initialization. But the WIFI network should appear, have you tried to detect it from another device?
yes i did

was suddenly, was working and then hung up to put in a box I made, and when I reconnected I did not transmit any wifi signal

Contact jjrobots, they can check your electronics if you send it to them. Looks like a short circuit on the Arduino: did the board touched any metal while it was working?
Is there any list of pins, used by "jjRobots electronic brain shield v3.1 (Devia)"? Slider's software seems to ignore the length of rail specified and keeps pushing it on. I want to install 2 cut-off switches, so I need 2 (or at least one) digital inputs on Arduino to connect them to.

Check you are pressing ENTER after introducing the length of the rail. Otherwise the APP will not update the Arduino with the new info.

If you are planning to use "end of rail" buttons, you can use the SENSOR input on the Brain shield board. The two sensors connected to the same line will work as the Arduino "knows" where the camera is moving to, so there is no need to use two different lines for the two end on rail sensor.

You can get the Brain shield schematic here:

Hi there!

I bought a Arduino Lenoardo and the Brain Shield from your site/shop. Now I wanted to flash the Arduino COde to the Ardunio with the newest Arduino Version 1.8.9 but first when uploading I get some Warnings:



Code:

Besides that it flashes to the Arduino.
Now when I power the Arduino and the Brain shield through 12V Power Supply the only thing the brainshield does is that the WiFi module blinks once, then after a second a second time, and then no more. I also can not see any broadcastet WiFi SSID from the Brain Shield.
I read that others here have the same issue and I wanted to ask what the solution to this Problem is.

I've done the following to ensure this is not a hardware related problem:
  • changed the Brainshield



Also what I have done:
  • Used Arduino Versions: 1.65 , 1.8.9
  • Flashed it from a Linux Distribution and also Windows 10


I am really trying to get this working but in the current state I (and others) are stuck.


Would be great if we could resolve this issue. If you need any further Information about this issue feel free to ask! Smile

Thank you very much.
Greetings
Ron
