Raspberry Pi enthusiasts that are looking for a new project to keep them busy in the coming weeks, maybe interested in this new Raspberry Pi 3 dashboard car camera project which has been published to the Instructables website by member Vijay Guna.
Check out the video below to see footage taken using the Raspberry Pi powered car dashboard camera that can help you record your journey just in case anything untoward should happen and an insurance claim needs to be filed.
Vijay explains a little more about the project :
I have previously worked with Arduino boards to develop a motion based mobile alerts. But always wanted to work with Raspberry Pi because of the diversified projects that could be done relatively easily because it is a full blown mini computer running on Debian based Linux. Then I remembered looking for a Car Dash cam a couple of years ago, but never bought one as they didn’t feature all the requirements that I had in mind. The timing was perfect as I was already trying to explore Raspberry Pi and this use case made perfect sense to me to play around. Luckily for me they released RaspBerry Pi 3 model very recently, so went for it.
Full instructions on how to create your very own Raspberry Pi 3 dashboard camera are now available to follow via the Instructables website via the link below. If you enjoy building Pi projects you might be interested in our comprehensive list of Raspberry Pi displays, HATS and small screens.
