Controlling a GoPro camera via Arduino and WiFi

The recent phenomenon of making a video recording of almost anything has been helped greatly by the increasing popularity of rugged cameras such as the GoPro. However in some situations you may want to remotely control your camera - or set it up for motion activation, customised time-lapse and more. And doing so is relatively simple with Ethernet-enabled Arduino and a popular WiFi router. This has been demonstrated using various methods, and a final example has been provided by  Arduino forum member "elaber", as shown in the following video:

That's a neat project, and has a great amount of potential - so visit the Arduino forum to learn about the project. And for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.


When putting together your next Internet-enabled Arduino project - save time, space and money with the Freetronics EtherTen. Apart from being fully Arduino Uno-compatible, it has onboard Ethernet, microSD socket, full USB interface (so you don't need a costly FTDI cable just to upload a sketch!) and supports optional Power-over-Ethernet.
