Meet Steve, an Arduino-powered camera chauffeur

Arduino TeamNovember 5th, 2019

Taking photos or recording videos by hand is great, but in many situations you’d prefer to have your camera mounted on a movable or even programmable platform. Steve — now funding on Kickstarter — aims to fill that role as a remote-controlled vehicle that can maneuver your camera into places where you couldn’t reach before, all while capturing cinematic shots. 

The device is able to carry a payload of 20kg, and features a suspension system that allows it to traverse rough terrain, along with Mecanum wheels that let it slide in any direction. 

Best of all, it’s powered by an Arduino, meaning that when you’re ready to move on from manual RC operation, it can be customized for a wide variety of uses!
