LEGO powered robo mobile phone dolly

This is a mobile platform used for slow motion sequences with attached camera, such as a mobile phone.

Features consisting of:
simple & flexible design
JOBY Gorillapod used as mount for heavy DSLR, could be replaced if only phone is used.
dolly assembly
Trailer end (fixed width)
Tractor end, not rigidly attached, so it can point in any direction, ie doesn't have to be a straight line
camera. There is enough torque on the ridiculously geared down small electric motor to haul a DSLR,

Here is a test video:

Future features to be considered:
implement safety features - collision detection (motor stop) + cliff sensor
robotic control of single steering (for more repeatable sequences)
multiple steering wheels
camera tilt
* inverted gondola mode

Gear ratio turns drive very slowly
