Inspecting for problems and worn parts under the chassis of a car was never one of the more fun tasks of performing your own auto maintenance. Rust and dirt never seem to add much to the facial complexion, nor does it help to “get the red out” when it gets in your eyes. The X10 XCam2 video camera, however, can do this without blinking!
I set up the camera on the Ninja Pan & Tilt base, along with a light source, so that the camera could be positioned with the remote control.
I used a handheld portable TV, hooking the camera receiver’s video output to the TV’s video input jack.
The focus of the camera may need to be tweaked a little due to the close range.
Here, this setup is used to check for damaged rubber boots on the CV joints of a front-wheel drive car.
