What is WisCam? and What can I do with WisCam?

  • What is WisCam?
    RAK WisCam is the Modular Based Evaluation Kit to help the developer to design Wi-Fi video product with Linux OS. WisCam can transmit video through Wi-Fi to APPs. This document mainly describes the hardware structure of WisCam and how to use WisCam’s basic function. For example, play video in the mobile app or Windows program.
    Why I should buy the WisCam?
    Add video or image to Real-time preview in APPs
    Build P2P Cloud server and transmit video and control data anywhere when you access into internet
    All software source code are available on Github and Hardware open all design
    Fully compatible with Arduino UNO development board in hardware
    The source code of mobile app is available on github
    Fast to build the prototype for your application demos
    Design the products not only linux but also Arduino devices.
    What’s function of the WisCam?
    CPU is built on the ARM926EJ- 32-bit RISC CPU core. The frequency can be up to 200MHz@1.8V.
    WisCam supports WI-FI IEEE 802.11 b/g/n protocol, 1T1R antenna and SDIO interface. High-speed wireless connection can be up to 150 Mbps.
    WisCam provides UART interface to communicate with Host MCU or Arduino board. This allows you to focus on your application development.
    Provides a 10-bit ADC, a MIC-phone, a UART, a speaker and a dozen of GPIOs
    Record up to 640x480@30FPS RGB MJPEG video.
    Provide multiple accessories to make your application more amusing and easier to use
    Who will pay the interesting for WisCam?
    The R&D or product team at the company who make video product
    Engineer developer interesting Linux OS
    Open source developer for Arduino
    Maker who make your video or image idea coming ture
    Robot or toys team to making product amusing
    Student to learn linux programming from Junior to senior

    The function demos that product integrate the WisCam
    Update the Tutorial video in RAK youtube channel
    Update the how to compile the source code video in RAK youtube channel
    Update the how to use Peripherals(PWM,I2C,GPIO,ADC etc.) video in RAK youtube channel
    Update Controling toys with Ardunio video in RAK youtube channel
    How it works?
    1:WisCam build in P2P Cloud server, the developer can use WisCam to build similar product like IP-Camera .
    2:WisCam build in RTSP server, the engineers can develop smartphone APPs or Windows Software.
    3:Developer can program inside the WisCam base on linux to realize his own application code
    4:WisCam compatible to Arduino Shield,you can use UART to communication with Arduino core to leverage the plenty demos base on Arduino
    5:WisCam can communicate with Windows PC via USB UVC protocol
    6:WisCam can record video or snap image automatically.
    7:WsiCam add your product not only Real-time video but also remote control or get status
    8:WsiCam will add vision algorithm to make your product more and more amusing
    9:WsiCam make you learning wifi driver ,image sensor driver ,UVC driver ,P2P cloud driver and linux OS.

    Compare to other solution, what’s the advantage?
    WisCam’s competitior: Openmv, is a typical hardware solution for image embedded module
    Company website: http://openmv.io/
    The difference
    WisCam base on Linux OS, which haves high performance to encode video or image. We spent lots of the development time to reduce the code size to match Linux architecture
    WisCam open all source code to engineer to build your application
    WisCam can be up to 640x480@30FPS video
    WisCam have the high performance video and audio processing to
    Compare to linkplay made, RAK WisCam is mostly like a open source module not just a wifi speaker modules.
    The developer can use WisCam UART to connect the HOST-MCU ,such as Arduino.
    WisCam provide the SDK with plenty open IO like UART,ADC,GPIO,I2C etc.
    How Many way Wiscam can play video now?
    USB UVC mode
    WIFI Camera playing in Android , IOS ,Windows APP.

    How Many Functions inside the WisCam?
    MJPEG Encode
    Audio Encode
    Audio Decode
    USB HOST/ USB Device
    P2P Cloud server
    HTTP Protocol
    RTSP Server
    USB UVC
    SD card

    What can customers do with WisCam today?
    WisCam can access to a lot of field about video ,audio and wifi application.
    IP CAMERA with P2P Cloud Server
    USB Camera with UVC Protocol
    Motion detection for security applications
    With QR Code Detection/Decoding you can make smart robots or toys
    Detect Frame or Image differencing to execute different action
    Face Detection to count Human traffic
    Motion tracking to control your deivce to move
    2D barcodes Detection/Decoding

    The key word of WisCam
    Open source IPC
    Linux learn board
    MJPEG Encoding video board
    Arduino Camera module

    "9:WsiCam make you learning wifi driver ,image sensor driver ,UVC driver ,P2P cloud driver and linux OS"

    Where can I find the source code for image sensor driver, UVC driver & P2P cloud driver!? I scan through the source tree but not able to locate these driver source. Could you point me to the right directories.

    Thank you so much!
