I want to help people to interact with robot easily with camera. Building a car that can stream video from the camera mounted on the car so that people can watch the video on the laptop.
What it does
The car can be controlled by keys and transfer videos from the camera mounted on the car back
How I built it
Modify a R/C (Remote Controlled) car, using PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) signals to control the servo and motor respectively. Mounted camera on the Raspberry Pi on the car to stream videos in real time.
Challenges I ran into how to Control the car wirelessly
Accept input from computer and connect with the car
Accomplishments that I’m proud of
Overcome difficulties between software and hardware
What I learned
Patience are greatly needed to handle various bugs
What’s next for surveillance car
Adding more computer vision techniques
Python, Raspberry Pi, Ubuntu
