Video transmission

Hi everyone,

I'm quite new in all of this, but i want to build a robot able to transmit video, and possibly sound. I've got a common webcam and I want to make it wire less, but I don't know how to do it.

I would apreciate any help from you lot.

Well, the fact is that money is also important. I think, that if I managed to turn the USB of the webcam to a video conector, and had a strong enough electric supply (best batteries), I could manage to make the camera transmit with the device I introduced on my last post.

Anyway, this type of devices only reach to about 60 meters, but I think its enough, most remote controls dont reach very far either.

I've been thinking about this, and I think that the best option (cheap and "good" in size) is to buy a black and white security camera, plugit to a reciver with a current supply and thats it. I think its the best option because you avoid the fuss of having to convert the USB to a analogue plug.

A very good idea too, posted by BaseOverApex, is to take away the dispensable parts of the emiter, such as the audio transmiter if you don't want audi, of course!!

Nope my solution has audio and no parts "taken away". Just disassembled to reduce the physical size. Oh, any camera's colour, too! Definitely skip the USB unless you want to have a laptop on your robot.
