To complete this lab activity, make a video that includes the following in one video:
(1) You saying your name (2) Your stepper/camera setup successfully tracking a red object with PID control (3) A discussion of your observations from changing the PID gains independently
In this video, we set up a stepper motor with a camera attached to the shaft. Then, we write code in PSoC and Python to run a control loop to find the location of a red object and turn the camera to center the red object in view. We write the PID control equation into our Python code, then do some experiments changing the gains and observing the effects. We learn what the expected effects are of increasing each PID gain independently.
