I got the 3V trinket yesterday and then realized the 8MHz vs 16MHz. I got the trinket to be a hardware volume knob, so I ordered the 16MHz trinket and am trying to use the 3V 8MHz as a USB servo controller (sorta a combination of http://learn.adafruit.com/trinket-fake-usb-serial
). Has anyone gotten the usb serial to work in linux (I would like to see an example of how exactly to use the python script mentioned in the guide). I was thinking of using http://www.servocity.com/html/spt200_pa ... ystem.html
and http://www.servocity.com/html/hs-985mg_ ... orque.html
-does anyone know of a cheaper solution?
At the very least, I need to be able to SSH over the internet and move it, defaulting to a wider shot if I loose connection. I will probably achieve this via dvgrab | tee >(ffmpeg -i - -qscale 10 disk_quality.mp4) >(ffmpeg -i - -an -s 300x300 -qscale 40 small.mp4 #for streaming). I intend to use OpenCV to track, but am having problems with background subtraction ATM (I have face detection working, but he tends to turn his head when he walks to the side, which it doesn't follow).
