    Are you familiar with GoPro cameras? Or even just simple USB cameras...

    Can you say more about the overall system? What is the controller (PC, laptop, tablet, Arduino, etc.)? Are you sending the video data over a network? If so, what kind of network (RF, wired, protocol, etc.)? :smile:

    i don't familiar with GoPro cameras actually. the controller that i want to use is raspberry pi.raspberry pi can use a wifi to send the data over network.are you all familiar with raspberry pi???

    Yes, I'm familiar with the Pi. Do you know what camera you will use? Do you know what datarate you will use, and what kind of video compression?

    How about adding a tracking feature where the camera tracks some color like a section of red?

    You could use a servo motor attached to the Pi.

    Another idea would be to add a microphone to record the sound and possibly to start the video recording when you hear a sound.

    I think you'd need to use the pi to scan a video snapshot and based on where it spies the red color then move the camera a bit and check again.

    We can't read you thoughts here. Can you be more explicit with what you're thinking?

    What controller? Why do you want to change it? What are you trying to accomplish with the change?

    Are you simply trying to make a project distinctly different from your classmate?

    This is obviously a schoolwork project, and you are showing zero effort on your schoolwork, asking us to do if for you. That is cheating based on your lack of effort. This thread is closed.

    If you still want our help, re-post this in the Homework Help forums, and fill out the HH Template showing your work. That is the only way you will get help on your schoolwork here.
