However, V3 is now operational. Stereo vision, LIDAR, integrated PID control of yaw and pitch, yadda,yadda,yadda. I have decided to open source the entire system, in spite of reservations of my own, and frantic advice to the contrary. After all, if you want to pry open Pandora's box, might as well not pussyfoot around.
Here's a teaser - this is a vertical LIDAR/imaging scan cycle of the full camera head. Images, github links, etc, will follow over the holiday season.
