Description

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.

Note:
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!
