7.55 mile RC truck drive

Modified the RC truck cam to make it slightly higher & record uncompressed frames without the wide angle attachment.

Truck cam from February, with wide angle lens & JPEG compression.

Truck cam from July with narrow lens & raw frames. Most striking is the same loss of detail as the path gets farther away. The rise made a slight difference.

There was a brief sighting of leash car in the $parkfun AVC. A leash with optical detection of its angle would work, but there's the issue of wrangling the leash & having it on video. If the runner was along side the car, going too slow would make the car steer off the path. 99% of the driving is with the running directly behind the car. It would work at night.

Optical path detection is still the favored technique, even though no algorithm has emerged. Today's footage would be untrackable. Edge detection felt more likely to work.
