This project is solving the ArduSat challenge.
Our project is to extend the functionality of the ArduSat to use a camera and send images of the Earth to people's mobiles. We are using open cv to track the earth with the camera and adjust the camera angle to center the earth in the picture frame. This can be manually overridden by the user via a mobile, tablet or PC using our webserver - http://www.agm.me.uk/arduhack/ (the user control is yet to come).
Also, a future idea is to beef up the processing power of the ArduSat by using a BeagleBone/Raspberry Pi as the main computer but keeping it compatible with the Arduino platform. We're taking on the level 2 Hardware challenge by running a RasPi as the main computer alongside an Arduino UNO to experiment with.
