  • I have built this, using a Pi Zero W + V2 camera as the webcam, and configuring it to stream using the"motion" software package, although with motion detection turned off.

    With no video, the keyboard control for the cambot worked very well. When I streamed video using the technique described in the blog and tutorial, the video worked great, but the response to the arrow keys became sluggish, and stop signals from key releases were almost always not picked up. I was using a Safari browser. Not yet sure how to make the keyboard action signals more robust.

    I haven't yet played with the page refresh rate: 5ms may be on the fast side. And I should introduce a separate key dedicated to stopping the motors. But I wonder if there is a way to make detection of the keyup signal failsafe. It's the key releases that aren't being detected.

  • I have the same question as saccade. The datasheet is bare bones. It is not clear that this can be configured to join a wifi network. Can it? The datasheet only describes a direct connection via its soft access point.

No public wish lists :(
