Facetracking with OpenCV and DAGU Pan & Tilt

Hi all

The guys over at Sparkfun have a evry nice tutorial on using OpenCV and a webcam paired with an Arduino and DAGU's inexpensive Pan & Tilt mechanism to perform face tracking.

This what you'll need:

- A webcamera (any webcamera supported by windows or Linux (with UVC drivers) ) will work.

- DAGU Pan & Tilt - http://robosavvy.com/store/advanced_sea ... u+pan+tilt

- An Arduino: http://robosavvy.com/store/index.php/cPath/1195_1196
I believe SF's sample uses an Arduino UNO and a breadboard to power the servos.

In addition to the UNO we have other Arduinos in stock that are ready to connect to servos (ie come populated with 3 pin servo connectors so there's no need to use a breadboard ). These are the Romeo and the Redback Spider controller in case you'd like to look at an alternative.

Regards
Pedro.
