Looks very nice, the wheel seems like a good idea.
Could you explain the setup?

I have used two dc-motors which are running about 4 rpm. I use a very short pulse to run them, like 100 ms, and then this tiny motion is driving the wheelchair-wheels very smoothly. I can attached some pictures if anyone is interested.

Here is another video of the new setup; I think you can see the details, it is not so complicated.

Two motors, one controller and a wheelchair. A laptop and a Canon S1 IS for the pictures and its done. I might add that it is not as easy as it sounds, has taken a while to put together, started with timelapse 6 months ago and has experimented alot... :geek:

Cool ! I have recycled a wheel chair from the local hospital to use as a road dolly !
However my old bicycle will provide me with 2 wheels to follow your design :-)

Here is the progress with the wheelchair timelapse machine. Dolly is now added to the pan/tilt and I have alot more ideas with this design... Thinking about developing a low cost copy for amatuers like me that experiments with timelapse, I'll post the progress of this development here too!



Merry Christmas!
