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

 This Saturday we will be holding our first workshop this quarter where we finally program a full product. We will collectively go through the process of designing and programming the software for a pan/tilt mechanism that was built last year, but the software was never finished. The server side programming will be done in PHP, with browser scripting being done in Javascript.

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.
