Fantastic project, thank you
Is there Arduino software available please
I want to try different IR sensors (GB2D12 , IS471 , IR emitter receiver leds etc......)

Kind regards

I used some sample code for AFMotor library (https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit-Motor-Shield-library) just to shoot this demo video. Firmware from Ciclop 3D Scanner would probably be a better choice (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:740357). With Ciclop firmware you could set up your IR sensor as an endstop that limits range of platform motion.

As for camera mount, I haven't thought about it much. Your idea is very sound, so drop me a line if you feel like discussing it in detail.

I agree to discuss it in detail !!
