    Camera Dolly mobile platform

    created by paulgun on 2012.08.13

    Main Section
    LEGO powered robo mobile phone dolly

    This is a mobile platform used for slow motion sequences with attached camera, such as a mobile phone.

    Features consisting of:
    * simple & flexible design
    * JOBY Gorillapod used as mount for heavy DSLR, could be replaced if only phone is used.
    * dolly assembly
    * Trailer end (fixed width)
    * Tractor end, not rigidly attached, so it can point in any direction, ie doesn't have to be a straight line
    * camera. There is enough torque on the ridiculously geared down small electric motor to haul a DSLR,

    Here is a test video:

    Future features to be considered:
    * implement safety features - collision detection (motor stop) + cliff sensor
    * robotic control of single steering (for more repeatable sequences)
    * multiple steering wheels
    * camera tilt
    * inverted gondola mode
