Writing web server and Arduino software to control a pan/tilt webcam

The process we will follow is:
- Design a serial protocol to send all of the messages we need between the pan/tilt Arduino and the web server.
- Implement and test the protocol on both the Arduino and the web server. 2 weeks ago we demonstrated getting a web server talking to an Arduino, so we will not be covering this in general, only the aspects we need.
- Design the full interface that will be seen by users of the pan/tilt client.
- Implement the server side software to handle the queueing of control requests.
Once all the software is written, it will be adapted to fit within the sideblock of this website and will replace the current webcam snapshot.
