How can I build a Solar Powered Camera for Car Detection Answered
I'm looking to build a solar powered camera that detects cars moving past and takes a photo. I've been trialing an off the shelf model that relies on software to detect motion but it does not perform well when the cars are travelling over 15km/h. For this reason I'd like to try and develop a camera that senses the magnetic properties of a car (like traffic lights).
I'm open to suggestions but here's how I picture it working:
Magnetometer detects car > Micro controller > Camera > Micro controller > 3G/4G antenna > Internet.
The system would need to be powered by a battery which is charged by a solar panel.
Send me an email and we can chat on how to tackle the project. I work for an environmental consultancy so we can provide you with proof of an internship. email@example.com
