As part of a survey requirement, I have to build an HD zoom camera with tilt capabilities.
I wanted a cheap setup that would interface easily with BR2 using as many components readily available from BR’s website.
This is what I have done so far and I must admit I am getting pretty happy with the results.
First, I purchased an IP HD camera: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Low-Light-H-265-H-264-Sony-Sensor-IMX291-Hi3516CV300-2MP-1080P-Audio-IP-Camera-Module/32833041970.html?
Note that only one board on the picture but there are in fact 2.
I also purchased the following from BR website:
https://www.bluerobotics.com/store/watertight-enclosures/4-series/camera-tilt-mount/ (mount for analog camera)
If you will be building this I am sure BR can sell you only the parts you need. They even sell custom size tube to suit. I will be cutting mine in 3 equal pieces.
First I had to cut a hole in the tray plate to mount the tilt motor:
With a little help from Mr Dremel and an exacto knife:
I then made some holes in the Analog mounting kit and solidified with hot glue:
Mounted the Camera:
I am pretty happy with the result so far.
Tomorrow I will be getting the tube cut in 3 and design a bracket to mount it and wire it all up.
I will use a section of tether to keep things simple.
More to come later.
