The Pan and Tilt HAT kit for the Raspberry Pi provides you with a mount that has horizontal and vertical motion sensors, giving you the means to mount a camera, sensor, etc.
The fully assembled kit consists of the HAT and the pan & tilt module. The HAT has two servo channels, one PWM or NeoPixel RGB (or RGBW) LED channel, and a right-angled header pre-soldered to the underside of the HAT to connect the servo and LED channels. The pan & tilt module has two servos that give 180° of motion through both the horizontal and vertical axes.
When all is assembled and ready to go, why not try using the set-up for face tracking, or mount on a robot as a set of eyes. There is a handy little acrylic camera mount that will hold your camera snugly in the head of the pan & tilt module, and the mount has a couple of holes at the top that can hold a NeoPixel stick as well as a neat little frosted diffuser that produces a most agreeable light.
We’ve put together a super-simple Python library to make it super-easy to control Pan-Tilt HAT. Just tell Pan-Tilt HAT to which angle you’d like it to pan or tilt (from -90 to +90 degrees) and away it goes! There’s even a couple of examples showing you how to pan and tilt, and control connected NeoPixels.

The Raspberry Pi, Pi camera, NeoPixel strip, male header, female to female jumper wires, and Pibow are not included. You’ll need to pick them up separately!
