Topic: Arduino + 2 servos + webcam (Read 4701 times) previous topic - next topic


Hey, my first topic and first show of my project. ;D
I discovered this forum after my post on blog was published.
Sorry for that. ::)


But it is so simple, that from pictures and video you will know everything.
Maybe try http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=cs&sl=cs&tl=en&u=http://blog.tomasbrincil.cz/%3Fp%3D316
But translator can't translate it good.

A i'm now writing new post where you will see controlling webcam with browser on my Android. I will link.


There si rest, also in czech:


Very nice!
Neat, clean and simple! Great work !


Excellent work!   Nice and clean !

Please also check mine.

Arduino Online Controlled Vehicle

And check the circuit carefully when you connect power line of servo or motor with your Arduino.    It may damage the sensitive electronic components.


How do you make your webcam work by the way??


The webcam is directly connected to PC.
And it is streamed via VLC to the Internet as HTTP stream.
I use this command:
Code: [Select]
cvlc v4l2:///dev/video0 --sout '#transcode{vcodec=h264,vb=800,scale=1,acodec=none}:duplicate{dst=std{access=http,mux=ts,dst=}}'

But it has 7000-8000ms latency, i need figured out some better solution.


That's really simple and useful, thanks for sharing! You could do some interesting vison-based control work very cheaply with a setup like that. Kudos

I'm going to make some vehicle based on R/C car. But still thinking what would be the best solution. For communication (webcam stream) i will use regular WiFi connection. MikroTik board connected to seagate dockstar (picture bello). ZigBee could be more simple and cheaper. But dockstar is armel based computer and it is more poreful than Arduino. So Arduino will be just for controling servos and I/O sensors.
