You may know that there is a new camera for the Raspberry Pi, The High Quality Camera:
It’s a game changer!
12.3 megapixel Sony IMX477 sensor, 7.9mm diagonal image size (1/2.3"), and back-illuminated sensor architecture, with adjustable back focus and support for C- and CS-mount lenses
Its sensor is the same size as what we found in standard action camera.
I plan to build some software and hardware to use it for Mapillary. My goals are:
- Control the Pi from a web browser
- On the fly localization and heading
- Adjust the timelapse interval with the car/bike speed.
- Real-time or Post-process localization to get centimeter accuracy.
First, I need to:
- Find a better lens with a wide FOV. (about 1mm fixed-focal lens would gives a 150° horizontal FOV)
- Compare image quality vs an action cam
- Test how fast you can capture images
- Add a gnss receiver
- Add an IMU
- Write the software
- 3d print an enclosure
Then I could try to add more HQ-cam (Pi compute module or Arducam multicam adapter or stereoPi) and perhaps build a new 360° cam
