Pi Tracker in Action: Video

· IoT Zone

Access the survey results 'State of Industrial Internet Application Development' to learn about latest challenges, trends and opportunities with Industrial IoT, brought to you in partnership with GE Digital.

In my last post I gave an overview of a toy I created using Raspberry Pi and the components used for it. After that some of my friends wanted to see the toy in action and here is the video.

A new feature added to the tracker after the last post is the video streaming to the controlling device. In the modified tracker a USB camera is attached to the front of the tracker and connected to the Raspberry Pi. The RaspPi host a mjpg streamer and the video can be streamed to any device connected to the same network, including the Android device that controls the tracker. This helps my son to sit anywhere in the house and control the tracker.

Stay tuned for the next post with source code and more…
