Hello there! First post here…
I have a friend that wants me to make a rover for him that can hold a small camera about 5 or 6 feet high. It will travel on mostly smooth surfaces but will also need to navigate outdoor walkways which may have some uneven sections.
I’ve been looking at a bunch of different sites with robotic platforms and the best I’ve found so far is the Dagu “Wild Thumper” 6WD, but I’m just not sure that it’s quite wide enough for the application
It seems like it would keep the camera fairly stable, though any base movement across the length of the 5’ arm that is holding the camera is going to equate to a lot of movement at the camera side.
I want to try and mount a gimbal but the camera records in 360 degrees so a gimbal will end up obstructing the view.
I’d go on more about ideas for the gimbal but I guess this isn’t really the right forum for that.
Anyway, any help/suggestions would be much appreciated!
