Original Abstract

Aim of this article is to describe a development of a camera system which enables a wireless image transmission. We used a small CCD camera for taking images, that camera is connected to a special module developed during this work. The camera system is composed of three main parts: a service module with the camera (works as a transmitter), a coordinator (serves as a receiver) and a control program with a user interface (runs on a PC). The wireless communication (data transfer) between the service module and the coordinator is based on the IEEE 802.15.4 standard. The coordinator is common product of the company Freescale, but the service module is designed and developed specifically for the system. Software for all three parts is also developed for that purpose. The finished system can take an image from a remote location and wirelessly send it to the PC.

Cílem tohoto článku je popsat vývoj kamerového systému, který umožňuje bezdrátový přenos obrazu. Použili jsme malou CCD kameru pro pořizování snímků, které je připojena k vyvinutému speciálnímu modulu, vyvinutého v rámci této práce.Kamerový systém se skládá ze tří hlavních částí - servisní modul s fotoaparátem (funguje jako snímač a vysílač), koordinátor (slouží jako přijímač) a ovládací program s uživatelským rozhraním (běží na PC).Bezdrátovou komunikaci (přenos dat) mezi servisním modulem a koordinátorem je založen na standardu IEEE 802.15.4. Software pro všechny tři části je vyvinut pro tento účel. Hotový systém přenáší obraz ze vzdáleného místa a bezdrátově ho odesílá do PC.
