To fit inside a ping-pong ball you would need to use an Atemga MCU without any Arduino board. If it must be powered by a battery also inside the ball you will need to be very careful about energy usage.
I don't think an Arduino MCU could do any useful image capture. What do you want to get pictures of?
Also, can you ensure that a camera in your ball would get a clear view from amongst all the other balls?
I think if this was my Thread I would change to title to "Arduino inside a ping-pong ball" so as to get the idea across to more readers quickly. If you edit your original Post you can change the title. Of course it's your decision.
As per your advise i changed the thread to "Arduino inside a ping-pong ball" :)
Ill answer your questions one by one
1. What must i take the photo of ? --- well i would just need the photos of the space (i am not expecting a clear photo though) just photos of elevation is enough.
I had messaged the pong sat team, how long the journey would be and this is what they had to say
"Flights last about 2 hours. I would recommend putting the system in sleep mode for the first 45 mins and using a altimeter to turn the camera on a 15,000 meters"
i was thinking we could start (at 15000 meters) taking photos from the start till the end on an interval of 1 min
2.a clear view from amongst all the other balls?--- Yes i believe upon request they would place the ball separately to get a good view
I'm not sure but I think the OP believes that the pongsat pictures came from a pongsat.
Hi tomGeorge :)
I am aware that the photos were taken with a better camera mounted on the carrier. But just for experimentation i just need a photo. as i mentioned before i am not expecting a good quality photo.
I am concentrating and interested to know abt
1. the technical needs and standards involved for communication between the Pongs.
2.the technical needs and the standards involved of several possible technical solutions, taking care of the particular circumstances, for
* Camera with lense
* Storage of the images
Thanks for the power suggestion CrossRoads
