AaronInSpace 4 Posted September 21, 2011 Share Posted September 21, 2011 Hey all, Working up a new project where I want to drive my RC car using an onboard camera module transmitting over some radio frequency to me. It is also similar to something I want to do at work in that I want to transmit video or images with limited bandwidth. Also it will eventually lead to doing a FPV RC airplane (check these out on youtube if you don't know what they are...theyre awesome) which will require longer distances and higher framerates and quality. My main question is this: is there a format of image which can easily be sent over radio. The limitations are that if you use JPEG, if one bit gets flipped, you can corrupt the whole file and get nothing. So is there something that is more susceptible to loss? Also is there an image format that can be built up pixel by pixel on the receiving end and displayed as each pixel comes in? I saw a guy do a high-altitude balloon on Hackaday using some sort of image format that he split up into hundreds or thousands of packets that each could be reassembled as the packets came in using some programming on the groundstation. Feel free to yak it up. I'm listening to any sort of advice and comments. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
