This tutorial will walk you through setting up your own Raspberry Pi time-lapse setup from beginning to end.
Get PCBs for Your Projects Manufactured
For this project and my other projects for PCB manufacturing and assembly I take help from PCBWAY, they are the best in this business and I have been never let down by their quality.
To install the camera use the ribbon cable and press the side of the connector and pull up.
To start this Raspberry Pi time-lapse project you will need a copy of Raspbian installed. And for this complete tutorial, we are going to use SSH only. So make sure to install any one serial terminal software.
In this, I'm going to use MobaXtream, which is a more convenient tool to use SSH.
Next, let's move to the programming part. Power on the Raspberry Pi and log in to SSH using the tool.
Then update the software by using these commands.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
Next, we have to enable the camera interface in the Pi. Use the following commands to enter the Raspberry Pi configs.
And select option 3, and enable the camera.
And enable that.
That's all next just reboot and log in again to the SSH
