Attaching a Camera or Ultrasonic Sensor

How to turn your Raspberry Pi into a Camera or ultrasonic sensor guided robot.

 

Attach the Raspberry Pi Camera With the Servo

Start with the Raspberry Pi Camera.

This tutorial assumes you have already built the servo package.  For instructions on building the servo package please see this.

Attach the camera to the faceplate of the servo package using two of the small screws attached.  You can properly space the camera from the servo faceplate by attaching the screws to the camera first, then attaching a nut against the camera.
