-------------------------+--------------------------------------------------
 Since we want to use the stereo-vision camera on top of the robot not only
 for visual servoing with manipulation and to be more flexible overall, we
 need a pan/tilt unit (PTU) to mount the stereo-camer an. This would then
 allow for servoing within a greater range and to use the camera also for
 face-detection/recognition (which needs a tiltable camera too due to
 different heights of persons).

 To control the PTU, if we build it ourself, we could probably even use the
 CPIO-port that the stereo-camera has.
