STS-PiLot: Web interface with live video for Explorer HAT / pHAT


#1

This python based software was initially designed as remote control interface for the STS-Pi rover, but can be adapted and used for other Raspberry Pi projects using the Explorer HAT / pHAT.
It can control the motors and outputs and provides a readout of the analog and digital ports in a HUD-style overlay.
The code and installation instructions can be found on github:

Good news for Pi Zero (W) users:
After problems with the capture thread clogging up the CPU on Pi Zeros I have added a non-threaded video capture interface to the software that puts less strain on the CPU. So you can now run STS-PiLot on your Pi Zero and enjoy live video from the camera. Details on how to use it are in the project log on hackaday.io:

This is the Polulu ZUMO with Pi Zero W, Camera and Explorer pHAT that had its first outing at Moray Coder Dojo yesterday.
