Koala II



Sensor Modules


Pan/Tilt Camera



This pan-tilt camera is a powerful solution for robotic vision experiments using a framegrabber connected either to a KoreBot or to a PC104, or for off-board processing using a tether or a wireless video transmitter. One or two cameras can be controlled directly from the Koala using KoreMotor, a dedicated motion control processor mounted under the Koala's hood or standalone.
