Kinect-based Face Tracking Using Maestro Servo Controller

Here’s a link to some recent work I’ve done with servo control using a Microsoft Kinect sensor:

In this phase of the project I’m using the Pololu Micro Maestro servo controller and DLL to position a webcam in response to face-tracking data from a Kinect sensor. Some of my earlier work ( … --WsfWVvct) was done with a breadboarded voltage-to-PWM circuit that produced a lot of jitter. The Maestro servo controller has been working much better, with a considerably smaller footprint.


Thank you for sharing your project with us; very cool! I’m happy to hear that the Maestro has made such a noteworthy improvement to your system.
