Raspberry Pi enthusiasts searching for inspiration for their next project may be interested in this Raspberry Pi Sense HAT project created by Instructables user Ashu_d. The Impact Recorder is designed to record impact sustained to vehicle while driving or stationary. Using the Raspberry Pi mini PC impacts are stored in the database in the form of readings as well as video and images.
“Impact Recorder is designed to record impact sustained to a vehicle while driving or stationary,” Ashu_d explains. Alongside the Raspberry Pi and Sense HAT, the build also uses a Raspberry Pi Camera Module to record footage, saving video and/or picture files to the SD card for you to examine after a collision. “The impacts are stored in the database in the form of readings as well as video/picture.”_
