Raspberry Pi DIY Pan Tilt Tutorial @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi
Check out this tutorial from Scrap to Power on how to build your own pan tilt mount using a Raspberry Pi for your camera module:
This aims to show the reader how to build a simple Pan tilt mount using readily available stepper motors and other parts. This device automatically moves the camera to pre set angles and at pre set intervals.
What you will need:
2 x 28BY-J 5V stepper motors with ULN2003A driver board.
6 way ribbon cable, approx 45 cm long (Can be split from a bigger cable)
Dupont cable female to female, usually these are supplied in 40Way strips.
10 x M3 x 16 mm bolts
2 x 1K resistors.
20 x M3 nuts
8 x M2.5 x 16 mm bolts
26 x M2.5 Nuts
2mm heat-shrink tubing, approx 40 cm long
Plywood approx 30 x 40 cm should be plenty.
75 cm camera ribbon cable for the Pi Camera
Micro roller switch switches 3A size approx (13 x 6 x 6)
Glue for gluing the wood parts together, I used hot melt glue.
Large > 15A terminal blocks for connecting to the stepper motors
Pi – Cobbler (Recommended, but not essential)
Solder, soldering iron, wire strippers cutters etc.
Approx 10cm of thin steel wire, approx 0.5 – 1mm. You could probably use a paper clip.
Raspberry Pi + PSU + camera module + Mini WI-FI dongle + Memory card with latest Raspbian

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
