4k drive

There was a theory that texture matching could be a better path detector, but it would require much higher resolution. Recorded 7 miles of 4k. Then the battery died. Did it at higher speed than the range test, with extra cargo. That's the only explanation. The battery only took 4444mAh, so it's lost a lot of capacity.

After walking the final 1.25 miles, finally viewed the footage.

The nearest part of the image had well defined differences between path & dirt.

Edge detecting makes it resistant to shadows, still leaving a well defined boundary. It would merely need to compare the amount of noise to find the path.

Farther away, the noise still vanishes, but it's farther at 4k.

The hard section of path still had little to differentiate. Still, a side looking camera detecting the nearby path through noise comparison regained favor. It's still not possible to follow the path at the required speed without some knowledge farther ahead.

The 'pro captured some lion footage moments before the battery died.
