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!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
