Could you still remember, what is your first electronic project that you’ve built?
Oh, if you never been involved in the microcontroller project, then you should give yourself a chance, as we’re going to develop an Arduino webcam servo.
Honestly, it’s not a very complicated project, so you don’t have to panic on it.
Before you’re getting started with the project, there are several components that you have to prepare first. Those materials are:
Arduino Ethernet shield
Latronix Xport Direct
The mechanical bits (You might want to consider the machined aluminium)
Ok, it’s time to link it up with the Linksys webcam. For your information, the Linksys webcam has its own internal webserver. In this case, it can be accessed remotely by simply enabling port forwarding on your router. In order to access this remotely, you should make use of your computer’s ip address (Note: Don’t screw with your local network, as it has nothing to do with it!) followed by a colon.
Please pay attention that the Linksys happens to use 1024 as its port. Hence, you have to do the same for the Xport, but it uses a different port, which is specified during the Xport setup process.
