Android First Person View

It looks like, that now (2013-08) most components are available to build a low cost FPV (First Person View) system with Android Smartphones.

* Viewer The Viewer could be an actual smartphone with a minimum screen resolution of 800 x 480 pixel and WLAN. In order to have a good contrast view under all circumstances (e.g. sun light), some kind of goggle is needed.

* Video Camera The Video Camera could be an older smartphone with a minimum screen resolution of 800 x 480 pixel and WLAN. Unfortunately the program (Android App) WiFIFPV needs actual Android version >= 4.0.

* WLAN router In order to archive a good transmission distance, an Ad-hoc WLAN is not sufficient. You need a WLAN router to connect the two smartphones.

If you do a double click on the pictures, they will be shown in a larger dimension.

FPV WLAN Router

Important for this portable operation is a low power consumption. Fortunately there exists in the internet a list which shows the power consumption of polular WLAN routers. The lowest power consumption (1,5-2,1 W) is found at the WLAN router Edimax BR6228nC.
