Abstract: 

Our design of a modular, automatically tracking camera mount will allow anyone to think less about the framing and capture process, and more about their content. The CidaFrame will be a simple to use device for any vlogger, parent, professor, or anybody else who wishes to automatically record a video, knowing their tracked subject will be in frame the entire time. The CidaFrame is targeted towards anyone with a device to capture videos or pictures, be it a kid making home videos, a parent watching their kid play a sport, or a lecturer recording their sessions. Similar products exist, but are expensive, require placing beacons, or come with a dedicated camera. This is where we hope to differentiate ourselves, by providing a lower cost alternative to camera tracking with a modular mount to allow lower cost devices such as phones, webcams, or cheaper dedicated cameras to all be mounted. A simple design will also facilitate anyone to utilize our device, simply by attaching a small tracker to the subject, and calibrating the mount with the touch of a button.

Description:
