The pan/tilt mechanism when combined with Pixy (CMUcam5), makes a simple and fun robot that can physically track objects. The Pixy pan/tilt mechanism comes in a kit form that requires some assembly.
It is compact but easy to assemble.
This kit does NOT include the Pixy.

Pixy is a fast vision sensor you can quickly “teach” to find objects, and it connects directly to Arduino and other controllers.
Pixy addresses two problems by pairing a powerful dedicated processor with the image sensor:
image sensors output lots of data, dozens of megabytes per second;
