I am a part of a group that wishes to send up a weather balloon into the stratosphere (goal is 115.000,0ft) where we are intresting in using the Respberry Pi for streaming a live video and recording of temperature and air pressure.
The members of the group have a usable knowledge within programming with C# and some Python.
The things that we want to Raspberry Pi to do is:
1: have a webcam and transmit the video back to the ground over a low frequency radio
2: messure and store temperature, pressure and maby radiations by using link: Radiation Sensor Board for Raspberry Pi and a sensor for pressure and temperature that the Raspberry Pi supports.
So the things that we are woundring about is:
1: Is it possible to use the Raspberry Pi for this?
2: What OS and what language is the best to do this whit?
3: What do we need to think about? Power use and so on?
4: What kind of equiptment are the best for this purposes?
I hope all of you good folks on this forum can help us get started
With best regards
- PST team.
