An interesting project that teaches you a number of things that could be used in other projects. A great educational example. — Douglas
In these steps I show you how to simply control a GoPro Hero 4 and a GoPro Hero Session 5 using an Arduino wifi board. As you will learn, these instructions could easily be adapted for any type of GoPro.
This is useful for when you want to build you own custom controller for a project. Rather than hacking into existing controllers, you can just use the Arduino to communicate with it directly using some basic networking commands. Not only are you able to control the functionality on the GoPro, but you can also receive status updates about the camera. This makes it a versatile solution for a host of different types of projects including custom robots and drones
