The MosquitIO has been discontinued. We are in the process of redesigning the Pan & Tilt control solutions for our Desktop RoboTurret. The new version will be more modular, Arduino compatible, and easier to use. We expect to have the new version ready end of May 2012. We apologies for the delay.

MosquitIO Specifications:

The MosquitIO Pan & Tilt Microcontroller is a custom developed controller built to make controlling a robotic pan & tilt unit simple and straight forward.

It is based around the Atmel ATMega168 microcontroller and is Arduino-Compatible with a few setting adjustments to the Arduino IDE. The default firmware is completely open-source and features dual-mode functionality: USB tethered to a PC using a simple serial packet command structure, or stand-alone using an analog joystick (such as the Phidgets Mini Joystick) for basic operation. A full-featured sample application written in Visual C# .NET is available for download below, along with open source firmware and a python demo app.
