Make Raspberry Pi Car for your upcoming mini engineering projects or science fair projects which can live stream video All detailed steps to make this project are included in this article
As a bonus for readers video is provided at the end, to check working of this wireless car make sure to check out video!
What is raspberry pi car?
Beginner who are new into this raspberry game might be wondering what and how it works, well Raspberry is nothing but mini computer used for computing
Here we are using combination of modules to live stream a video using Pi Camera, where as built-in wireless communication helps in wireless control of car.
Supplies for making Car project
- Raspberry pi 3 i use B model and Adeept motor hat
- Micro SD card for software installation
- Raspberry pi camera
- Acrylic car frame and BO Motors also called dual shaft dc gear motor
- Battery holder
- Front wheel bearing with some Zip ties and couple of screws
Building frame for Car
Start by soldering wires to BO motor terminals then Tie motors to acrylic sheet frame using zip ties
Front wheels are firmed to frame using screws Finally add wheels to shaft of Dual shaft dc gear motor
Once wheels are connected our frame can stand on its own!
Mounting electronic components
Upload software to sd card
For instructions on how to upload the software Click here , Once upload gets complete, insert card to raspberry pi
Pi is ready to rock! now install this hardware to frame of car, Using space provided in raspberry pi 3 for screw attachment fix to acrylic frame
Insert pi camera to pi via motor hat
Note: Refer images for any clarifications later Keep pi camera in place via copper mountings
Connect Adeept motor hat on top of raspberry pi, Make sure all pins are in correct alignment with board
Connect battery holder terminals and dc motor terminals to motor hat now Add battery to holder , i use rechargeable lithium ion batteries for powering this project
Switch on the device ,Connect network to your computer then Add ip address at this point you can live stream video
Video Tutorial Link to Make raspberry pi car
check This video working of raspberry pi car which can stream live video in your computer
Features of Raspberry pi Camera Car
Easy to make innovative project which Provides live video stream option
Can be easily control using computer and all parts are easily available
Long backup time as we are using lithium ion batteries that Can reach difficult areas
Might get first place if presented in science fair or mini projects for engineering !
