2 Guys and a Pi


It all started with the pirate box project…

2 guys,1We were assigned a pirate box storage project.

When we finished that an hour later, we decided to work with the Raspberry Pi.
We wanted to do something with networking a the Pi Camera Module.
That night, we researched different projects and came across the BerryCam app.

The next day, we finished the desk version of the project.

We now finished the portable version of the camera system.

EDIT: Updated

We had the PirateBox firmware running on a TP-Link Router (TR-MR3020, I think?). The RPi was connected to the PirateBox via wifi, and the phones used to control the Pi’s camera were connected to the PirateBox via wifi.

The pictures taken with the Raspberry Pi camera were taken using the Berrycam RPi package and iPhone app.

Unfortunately, we did not have enough time to get the pi to put the captured photos on the PirateBox TP-Link router.

The PirateBox TP-Link router was just used as a DHCP server and as a wireless access point.

USB cables were only connected to a hub to provide power from a single USB battery pack for the mobile version of the camera setup.

    Hi,
    Did those two boys try running the PirateBox directly on the RPi ?
    It should be usable, but some encounter problems with USB-wifi-compatiblity

    During the description, it seems they are using it as an additional system.

    regards

    Hope that provides better understanding of our project.

    Hi,
    thank you for your feedback. That is how I understood it after a closer watch to the board.

    You can PirateBox run on the RPi itself, that will save you one device and you can integrate the Camera (maybe more easier) to the WebUI.

    see http://piratebox.cc/raspberry_pi

    Thank you for replying,

    Matthias
