The GimbalCAM-Academic is a test bench designed to teach and learn the basic strategies about gyro-stabilized dynamics, control and computer vision. It provides standard RS-232 communication protocol and analog video output. The equipment is plug and play and can be programmed and controlled with Matlab, Labview or like, and evaluating the control dynamic behavior in real time. We provide three practical demos and user guide to begin exploring this technique. The first demo is about Pan, Tilt and Zoom Control, as surveillance cameras does, the second demo is about 2 axis (Pan/Tilt) gyro-stabilization, and the third demo is about vision-based object tracking. GimbalCAM-Academic have been conceived due to the lack gyro-stabilization test benches hardware focused on academic and research purpose. We offer a flexible platform to learn and research about this strategic field, which is a promising subject for the development of the future unmanned vehicles.
Strong theoretical and practical methodologies from the Aerospace, Electronics and Control Engineering were applied to deliver GimbalCAM-Academic technology which can be integrated to any education or research facility connecting it to a computer and required control software, such as matlab simulink, labview or like.
