Custom motor control of industrial PTZ camera



Nikolaos Kariotoglou, Reto Hofmann

PTZ cameras are traditionally controlled either by joystick or with preset positions. The most common protocol in devices is VISCA and was established more than 25 years ago by SONY; It is outdated and turns out to be the limiting factor when using PTZ cameras for closed-loop control with vision feedback. The goal of this thesis is to redesign the motor control of an off-the-shelf PTZ camera using an Arduino and a motor control shield such that the unit can be controlled by one of the existing vision feedback systems in the lab.
