Description: S_link is the mobile version of
Tetracam's SensorLink application. Able to run on cell phones
and other mobile devices equipped with Android 3.0 and up, S_link
enables users to define a set of waypoints above an area of imaging
interest shown on Google Earth. Each waypoint identifies a
location where a Tetracam multi-spectral camera that is equipped with a
Wireless Camera Interface (WCI) is to be triggered and
capture an image.
The App employs
the mobile device's GPS receiver and Bluetooth® interface to
(optionally) send GPS coordinates, attitude data and trigger commands
to the Tetracam camera.
Images are written into the camera's onboard memory with location and
device attitude data transferred from the mobile device to the camera
via the Bluetooth® interface.
Consult the S_Link
installation and setup guide at PDFs/S_link.pdf
To use S_link:
Use Google Earth
to create a path then save it to a kml file. Each click on the path
should represent a waypoint. Copy the kml file to the Download folder
in your device storage memory. Run S_link and select your waypoint file
on the KML tab.
To trigger the
camera, first pair the camera's Wireless Camera Interface Bluetooth
serial adapter to your mobile device then select it from the list of
all paired Bluetooth devices on the CAMERA tab. Finally, enable camera
triggering on the Settings dialog. Now, press Start!
The app will use
the device GPS receiver to give you a heading and distance to the next
waypoint. When you acquire the waypoint, if your camera is equipped
with a Wireless Camera Interface, S_link will send it the current
location data along with a trigger command. Use the SETCAM tab to send
configuration orders to the camera, change file type, exposure time
etc. The Settings dialog lets you select GPS update rate, waypoint
tolerance zone size, the units (km or miles) you see on screen, voice
messaging rate and type and whether to use Bluetooth for camera
triggering. Use the scroll bar to view example App screens at
