I’m very new to the exciting world of robotics, so please forgive me for asking such basic questions.
I’m trying to build a video camera motion control system in which I could pre-program exact camera moves with Arduino.
I’m not sure what kind of a motor would best suite my intentions, there seems to be so many different options like brushless motors, stepper motors, servos etc.
I will list a few key things that might help with this decision:
-I need to control the motor accurately so that I can program it to always move the exact same amount
-The motor should be able to tilt a videocamera weighting up to 20 lbs (or 10 kilos).
-I need the motor to be able to turn around 360 degrees and in both directions (forward and reverse)
-The motor should be smooth, so that the movement won’t jitter
-I would like to be able to program also feathered movements (gradual starts and stops) for a smooth experience
-The maximum speed of the motor doesn’t have to be very fast
Is there some other things to take into consideration? Could you kindly suggest what type of a motor could suite my needs?
ANY help will be highly appreciated!
