Pan Tilt Tracking FYI

No help needed yet. But I wanted to let folks know I will be working on a Pan Tilt tracking demo with the MV over the next 3 weeks or so. The pan tilt looks like:

Initially I will drive the servos from the MV and then will change it to communicate with an arduino to control the servos. The purpose of the arduino is to simulate a FIRST robotics control system that will be the target interface during competition season. Thinking MV to Arduino over UART Serial.

This week will work on

1) mounting the MV to the top servo
2) playing with servo control via MV

Then will write the blob tracking system in next week or after.

Cool, look at the UART Pixy emulation script for a good code base to start with.
