The idea behind CamCar is the development of a camera dolly that’s compatible with all types of cameras (e.g. single-lens reflex cameras). The vehicle’s drive system resembles that of an earthmover, so it can move back and forth, take curves and rotate on the spot.
It also has the capability of tilting and rotating the camera itself. To make this possible, the project staff developed a special arm that’s mounted on a rotary plate which can be tilted by a motor. The drive system consists of two wheels powered by two servomotors usually used in model construction. Four castors—two fore, two aft—have been built in for stabilization purposes.
