GPS-controlled GoPro camera using a Raspberry Pi

Texas-based Computer Scientist Estefannie has rigged up a GoPro camera to take photographs of herself. The GoPro cable is fed into a backpack which houses a Raspberry Pi 3. The Pi has a GPS board connected to it and calculates the distance between where Estefannie is now and a list of stored co-ordinates. In the case of her test run, this was a collection of London landmarks. A good usage of velcro allows all the kit to stay in place!

She’s written the whole thing up on Hackster.IO and you can view that by visiting this page. You can visit Estefannie’s website here and see a video of the camera in action below.
