Holio – Robotic Camera for Hole Investigation

at 5:11 am. Filed under Complex Hacks, Electronic Hacks, Toy Hacks

 

This Robotic Camera for Hole Investigation system by Cannibal Robotics was built to have a look in a mystery hole. The camera can pan and tilt, the unit takes serial movement commands so that it can be driven from outside the hole using a tether cable (that can also be used to yank out the robot if it gets stuck). The system uses 4 servo motors that have been modified to operate in a constant rotation mode.
