Alex Eames has been doing a lot of cycling recently as part of a keep-fit regime, and just for fun. He’s decided to make himself a bike dashcam. The set-up will include a Pi 3A+ at the front and a Zero at the back. As he explains it:
The front Pi will act as a wireless access point and the rear Pi will connect to it. Both Pis will be set up to record video while powered up. The rear Pi will also stream its video to port 8090. The front Pi will grab that stream and display it, probably using vlc, on the screen so I can see what’s behind me. This is just the day 1 design ‘specification’ in my head. No plan survives contact with the enemy, so you can be sure it’ll change as we go. That’s half the fun.
He’s decided to blog the project as he goes and you can read the first part here.
