Raspberry Pi Dash Cam Build

Yb0XujI

Here’s a really nice project posted to Reddit to build a car dashboard camera using a Raspberry Pi.  The project is in the early stages and just a comment thread for now, but it looks like the start of a great automotive Pi project.  The dash cam will use a LSM303 compass and accelerometer board to measure the forces and direction of the car, a GPS HAT to track the location, a Pi camera module to record video, and a PowerBoost 500C to help power it all.  This kind of data is great to have as a record in case of an accident, or even to get lucky and record something amazing like a giant meteor burning up.  Overall it looks like the start of a great project, good luck!
