Cmucam connect to radio modem Edit
See RateGyro3 Connect a 115kbs serial http://www.cmucam.org to a Zigbee RadioModems, GpsAndGprs , FreeSpaceOptics or RS485 unit. The farmworker attaches the cam to his chest and sends back real-time footage via the gsm modem. cmucam.org uses the http://www.ovt.com modules. Their most sensitive lux rating is 0.01lux but they are CMOS not CCD. With a white led system night vision should be possible at 0.01lux. Reverse engineer the circuit using BoMarc and replace the CMOS chip with a CCD chip so that InfraRedLeds can be used.
night vision Edit

80meg serial cam Edit
Blackfin serial and Wi-fi camera Edit

PIR on radio Edit
Connect a PIR ConfiguringAlarmSystem to the I/O line of the packet radio to transmit a real-time image to the base when the PIR is triggered.
CMUCAM features Edit
The cmucam is cmos based and won't work at night, for night time surveillance a CCD sensor must be used, but I don't know of any which has a serial interface.
- For nighttime surveillance a supercircuits camera attaches to an Mpeg4Compression board.
- The camera and DVR are only activated on a PIR alert to conserve battery power, see RobotPatrolling.
Serial to RS-485 Edit
Attach serial cameras to multiple RS485 ports on a truck to implement VehicleSecurity. Whenever the door opens or InfraRedLeds beam broken a snapshot is sent to the base via GpsAndGprs. The IR beams are placed for example under the truck at the suspension.
Radio modules Edit
3] LPRS Radio Modules control 'Cat Cam' for ITV
LPRS, Europe's leading supplier of short-range radio devices, has provided ITV Technical Services with easy-Radio wireless modules to monitor the movements of cats for a USA based programme maker. The programme was commissioned to study the psychology of cats and was made on location at a farm in Scotland. The filming of wild cats required "cat cam" cameras to be set up and left unattended for many hours. http://www.lprs.co.uk/
Serial to ethernet Edit
Connect the cmucam to a SerialToEthernet converter which interfaces with the Lynksys AP
