Making a Pi Zero Dashcam (pt. 3) : File Management & Enhancements

Introduction: Making a Pi Zero Dashcam (pt. 3) : File Management & Enhancements

About: #BnBe is a platform to help teach electronics no matter what the age or skill level. We’re currently designing a wide range of products from beginner level kits to industry-standard microcontroller platforms.

We continue with the Pi Zero dashcam project and in this post, we take care of file management while also adding some enhancements in the process. This project is almost complete and we will be carrying out road tests in next week's post/video.

Step 1: Watch the Video

There have been a lot of updates made to the script and I'd recommend that you watch the video to get an understanding of how it all works. We also discuss a suitable option for the safe shutdown feature which will be added in next weeks video/post.

Step 2: Connect the LED & Switch

Use the reference wiring diagram to connect the status LED and shutdown switch to the board. The video goes over the logic behind the functionality and the reasons behind why it is useful to add them.

Step 3: Download & Run the Script

Here is the link to the updated script:

The script is complete for the most part but we do need to add the safe shutdown feature and carry out some road tests. All this will be done next week.

Thank you for reading.
