Title: MOTORIZED TILT AND SWIVEL DEVICE FOR PANORAMA AND VIRTUAL REALITY APPLICATIONS
Abstract:
A motorized tilt and swivel device that includes a motorized component and an alignment component. The motorized component is configured to receive a command signal from a camera mobile device, and place, in response to the command signal, the camera mobile device in multiple positions for capturing images. The positions include multiple rotation angles with respect to a rotating axis and multiple tilting angles with respect to a tilting axis. The alignment component is configured to substantially align, prior to receiving the command signal and based on a alignment marker, the rotating axis with a camera lens of the camera mobile device, substantially align, prior to receiving the command signal and based on the alignment marker, the tilting axis with the camera lens, and constrain the camera mobile device such that the camera lens substantially overlaps an intersection of the rotating axis and the tilting axis in each position.
