My goal is to go to work on my E-Scooter instead of driving 1.5 hours in traffic jams. Here in the netherlands we have many heavy traffic jams arround 8am.
The distance i have to drive is arround 50km (google route). I want to capture the route wth a small camera on the front of the scooter. together with a gps tracker and the info from my cycle analyst and the log from the cellogs (4 pieces, each logger on a lipopack) i want to make a complete video screen with all data.
I have been experimenting first with exporting a gpx file into google earth which i can playback..and then i bumped on the first problem.
If it playes back the gpx it isn't shown realtime. So i was trying to change some options and parameters but that ended up with no succes.
After googling my problem i ended up with a 3rd party software app. which imports a gpx file and then uses google earth as a player !
Super !!! see here: http://www.hybridgeotools.com/
So..after figuring that out it was time to test it out. On a normal working day i used the car and recorded the route with gps and camera mounted on my rearview mirror. Then at work i imported the gpx file and used a little program called "Frapps" to capture my screen. I played the gpx file and saw in realtime the exact route on google earth. With the movie that was created in Frapps i also used the amera movie and then combined them with a video program editor. I normaly use adobe after effects. The total output was super !
Next step is to record all 4 lipo packs with the cellogs and use the data to move some meters and implementing that into the video.
The dashboard of my scooter will be modified into a brand new customized dash with 4 cellogs and the CA display and the lights from the turning signals.
All my stuff from hobbyking are at customs!! so i still have nothing received..still waiting for 16Lipo's 50 meters of wire and extensions and a variety of plugs and connectors. Hope they will come this week....
