FPV Series: FPV Driving

Project Overview

This project was done to understand the basic idea of first-person-view (FPV). FPV can be referred to as remote-person view (RPV), or simply video piloting. FPV has become popular recently in the radio control hobby community.

- Camera gimbals or head tracking modules was not integrated in the system. This resulted in the feeling that I had a very narrow field of view. This gets better if you have your head fixed to a fixture to constrain your head movement.  So it can be concluded that the feeling of constrained field of view was coming from the head movement not being affected by the user’s own head movement.

- The sound made it confusing as driving near myself the sound of the car was heard where the driver was standing. Driving near myself,  it was confusing to decide which way to turn to avoid myself even it was very obvious on the screen.
