http://people.ece.cornell.e... Oftentimes, photographers need to create moving timelapses across a landscape. A motorized camera dolly can be used to create these. The dolly is essentially a moving robot with the ability to move the camera position as well. Photographers can program the dolly with certain motions and place it on a landscape. After setting the time-lapse mode on, the camera dolly will move accordingly and take the timelapse until the photographer determines the shot to be sufficient.
Our camera dolly can be controlled using an iPhone application that we created. There are two modes: free mode, where the photographer can manually control the dolly or camera angle, and programmed mode, where the photographer can program many different actions (such as moving forward, moving the camera, etc.) over a time period so the time lapse can be complete.
