Rotary Stage

Mechanical design is done for the new rotary stage for panning the Kinect.

This adapter connects the Kinect to an Robotis Dynamixel RX-28

It currently provides a reasonably stiff connection, but a thrust washer/bearing may improve performance. Another option to improve stiffness would be to remove the case of the Kinect.

This part is used to connect the RX-28 actuator to the tripod.

Software testing should be done in the next day or two. Logged sensor data (.bag files) and complete kits should be available soon. In the future rotary stages for other sensors may be developed.
