CCS/BASIC-WIFI-APP: Wifi camera for Dog

Part Number: BASIC-WIFI-APP

Tool/software: Code Composer Studio

Hi All

I would need place wifi IP camera to my dog. Deploy several access points with solar power on my garden. Wifi on my dog would connect to access point with best signal. Access point would tranfer video to concentrator with direct visibility to each access point. LAN is available in concentrator.  For design components I would like to use some Launchpad and/or BeagleBone Black boards. Is it possible to design it? Thank you. Bohdan.

  • Hi,

    Video streaming applications are definitely possible with TI embedded Wi-Fi devices. As I am going to assume that your solution is battery-powered, the CC3220 or CC3235 would be a good choice.

    A video stremaing TI design that you can evaluate to see if the CC3220 suits your requirements can be found here:

    A broader overview of our Wi-Fi offerings can be found here:

    Let me know if you have more questions on our CC32xx Wi-Fi devices, or if you need clarification on any of the information provided.

    Regards,
    Michael

    Hi,
    Thank you for fast response.Please,let me have two more question. Camera is moving in range of several AP. Is there somewhere solved swiching signal among AP. Next. I did read that transfer video over CC32xx is slow because of slow tact frquency of periphery (about 2MHz) of ARM M4 processor. I would need real time transfer.Thank you.

    Hi,

    The CC32xx devices are definitely fast enough to transfer good-quality 1080p video. If you look at the datasheet, the measured transfer rates are up to 16Mbps for UDP traffic and 13Mbps for TCP traffic. The ARM Cortex M4 core is clocked at 80MHz, which is fast enough for many embedded applications.

    If your camera is moving between several APs, then you will either need to be able to handle disconnect/reconnect events in your application, or you can use the new CC3235. The CC3235 has soft-roaming capabilities, which means that it will be able to seamlessly switch between different APs when it detects that the signal strength of the existing connection is poor. See the network programmer's guide for more details:

    Hi Michael

    Many thanks for your information. I am very glad to have direction of my development and also I can use Launchpad in HW.
    This help me a lot. Thank you.
