The X-Y Camera Rig is used to image the large works of art in a museum's collection that are permanently installed in galleries and cannot be captured in a single shot. The rig is mounted perpendicular to the work of art and takes multiple pictures that are then stitched together to form a single image. The current X-Y camera rig, that was developed by the 2013-2014 Senior Design Team, makes stitching these images difficult due to the unstable frame when fully extended and lack of a reliable leveling mechanism. The current design also lacks safety features regarding the operator, the rig, and the surrounding artwork.
The goals of this project are to create a system that has a calibration routine that will ensure that during the real-time operation the camera will move smoothly to each position. Operational safety features need to be added, as well as improvements to camera stability. Limiting factors to this modification may result from trying to reduce both weight and overall size by having to reduce potential safety features and ensuring camera stability throughout the rig configuration.

Content Guidelines: Use these links below (or customize with links of your own, if appropriate for your project) to guide you in populating your website. A few points to consider:
- Be aware of any information that your sponsor might not want publicly available. You can use the private directory for this information, and it will be available only to those users with Guest access to your site.
- Do not post any files on your site that are not yours, unless you are certain that they are in the public domain or you have received permission to post them. Examples of files that you should avoid posting are copies of published papers, standards documents, textbook chapters/excerpts, or copyrighted images. If you have received a .pdf of a paper through Interlibrary Loan, or purchased an ASTM or ISO standard, you may post it in the private directory, where only your team and guide will have access to it.
- If you are including contact information for people that would otherwise not be publicly available, make sure you have their permission. For example, your faculty advisor's email address and office phone number are already publicly available on the KGCOE website, and is fine to post. However, if he or she has provided a cell phone number to the team, that is most likely not public information and should not be posted without explicit permission.
