As mention during the class about a few weeks ago, for the final project, I have an idea of combining live feed of road traffic cameras of the traffic heading towards Malaysia via Second Link or the Causeway. Juxtaposing it with another bridge which Randall suggested the golden gate bridge at san francisco.
I’ve manage to find out more of the live feed camera of the Golden Gate Bridge but it’s not working so great. Here, take a look.
I kinda have to keep pressing refresh to see the changes of the next second/frame. Talking of the Golden Gate Bridge, i know there’s an artist that use the latitude numbers to check numbers of suicide happening or something like that. I can’t really remember but I know there is an artist doing that. Please someone help me.
Anyway, I realise it’s the same as well for the Singapore traffic. But for Singapore, I am able to find traffic cameras from all over the island. Majors expressway basically. Take a look!
Looking at both traffic camera in one blogpost, I can really see the comparison better in terms of visual placing. There is some similarities. But wait, I googled Los Angeles Traffic Camera and they too have a live feed camera of their roads.
But yeah, it is not a live video like how I want it to be. Instead, it’s just snapshot of a second. It could work if I can have the page refresh automatically every 5 second or so.
Now back to the chopping board.
Great documentation for your project. It makes me wonder about the connection between these surveillance cameras and the Periscope.tv broadcasts we are doing. Rather than mounting the cam to bridge or a highway, we are mounting the camera to ourselves, we are a walking surveillance camera in a way. What do you think about this connection?
