DIY Vehicle Mounted Remote Control Camera System

at 8:31 pm. Filed under Electronic Hacks

Ben Heck has a pretty cool job hacking things together on his Ben Heck Show which is sponsored by Element 14. I just heard is that a full second year of episodes has been green lighted so stay tuned for a bunch of new episodes! I hope that Ben is enjoying the builds as much as it looks, I hope that time line pressure doesn’t burn him out… In this episode Ben hacks some gear for Phil Golden’s “Expedition Awareness” Jeep with custom-mounted remote cameras and an internal LCD monitoring system to get it ready for a 5,000+ mile cross-country journey dedicated to raising awareness for ALD.

“From writing the code for the stepper drivers to programming the micro controllers for the virtual tripod pan control to routing and finalizing the components for the video display system –  four, four-inch LED backlit LCD screens – the project was a modding labor of love for Heck. Phil and his team will use the cameras to capture each phase of the expedition, beginning with the Continental Divide spanning New Mexico to Canada to a second leg of the journey looking at America’s heartland from the East Coast to West Coast, and culminating in an urban area and off-road exploration of Canada. Designed to instill hope to those touched by ALD, the documentary aims to entertain and educate by combining adventure with information and real-life stories.”
