One of our clients (the District of West Vancouver) has graciously allowed us to post the results of their Eagle Creek Culvert Replacement project. The District used an wireless video camera to monitor vehicle traffic around a fish-friendly culvert replacement project. The camera took pictures of the site, day and night, once per-minute for about 3 months. We took daytime images and processed them into a stop-motion project video. Take a look….3 months of construction in 3 minutes!
How Can FlowWorks Remote Cameras Create Stop-Motion Video?
It’s easy. FlowWorks Wireless Cameras send images from a remote installation based on motion sensing and timed intervals. This allows us to find a balance between image quality and available wireless bandwidth. When it was time to make a stop-motion movie, routines in the FlowWorks server strips out night-time images and string the daytime ones together into a movie file.
How a FlowWorks Wireless Camera helped The Eagle Creek Culvert Replacement Project
In this case the District wanted the camera to monitor traffic around a very congested section of Marine Drive in West Vancouver. Automated traffic lights were used to alternate the single lane traffic. This keepsake project video was produced as a side benefit after the project was done. The District also has a permanent visual record (some 125,000 images in all) of the construction for future reference.
Off to the Olympics: What’s next for the Wireless Camera Station
The portable camera is now being moved to a traffic congestion area to monitor access to Cypress Mountain during the Olympics.
