Stationary balloon with Raspberry Pi (Part I)
Plan is simple. I’m going to mount RPi to a couple of balloons filled with hydrogen or helium (still not decided) and raise it 50 m above ground level. RPi will be connected to the Internet with 3g module and it will be streaming through it image from webcam. At this moment I’m gathering needed stuff.
- Raspberry Pi +
- USB HUB powered by batteries -
- Webcam +
- 3g module – (I’ve got one but it’s not working on Raspbian, I’ll try on Arch)
- Balloons -
- Hydrogen (obtained in home way, I’ll show later how to do that) + / Helium -
- 50 meters of thick fishing line
Photos of stuff I’ve already got:
Some electronical parts.
Mine Raspberry Pi with webcam that is working fine on it.
