Day 24 – Pi IP

Aaron made huge breakthroughs with streaming video from the Raspberry Pi to a computer. While he had successfully used VLC to stream to Windows devices, our Ubuntu laptop was not giving the Pi an IP. Today was the day that the laptop gave the IP to the Pi. Now that the Pi has an IP, we can access the Raspberry Pi’s SSH server. Aaron is in the process of installing VLC on the Raspberry Pi.

  • IP for SSH on Linux Laptop –
  • IP for SSH on Windows Devices – raspberrypi.mshome.net
  • Starting the video stream with raspivid -o – -t 0 -hf -w 640 -h 360 -fps 25 | cvlc -vvv stream:///dev/stdin –sout ‘#rtp{sdp=rtsp://:8554}’ :demux=h264


The team has attached the LiPo battery to the robot. With all on-board devices running without external power, the robot is completely wireless and automagical. To celebrate, we drove the robot to the IT department once again, this time with no wires.
