Inspiration

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
