I need to add an external camera for a photogrammetry project. It must be live and eventually also remotely operated (for taking picture)
here you find my project draft:
The idea is to put the additional camera in a battery enclosure, I would like to connect it to a rasbperry-PI board through a HDMI connection, the rasbperry-pi board will be connected to a Fathom-x module.
My umbilical is connected to the ROV enclosure through a 4 pin seacon, and I have an available twisted pair to connect to the additional fathom-x.
I will provide the correct power supply to the boards.
On the surface the ubilical will be splitted into two fathom-x boards. One will take the usual signal to the rov controller laptop, the other will be used just to take the camera flow to another laptop (the idea is to use the camera as an IP Camera)
I would like to hear your opinion about my project, do you think it can work?
I already had some trial without any success, probably due to gopro issues (I will probably use a sony camera for the job) but I have some doubt:
- do I have to add a pixawck module?
-does the raspberry-pi works with hdmi camera?
-Is it possible to use an hdmi camera with ardusub?
-How can I find the camera ip? I tried with windows netstat application but it finds several IP and no one of them is read by VLC.
-The sony camera I would like to use is controllable (for taking pictures) by its software installed in the laptop. Do you think I may convert the ethernet signal in hdmi one in order to control the camera?
I’ll be glad to hear your opinion about the project, please don’t be shy, if I’m totally wrong please tell me!!
