I was invited to attend the Google Zeitgeist Europe conference in London in 2011 as a member of the LEGO team displaying “cool” projects for the attendees. It was an amazing event, and I got to meet Prof. Stephen Hawking among other luminaries attending! I brought my LEGO Street View Car (version 1) along with me to show how there is no limit to what can be achieved with LEGO.
This project is a LEGO version of the Google Street View Car. I’ve been working on this project for the guts of six months now, and you can probably see why! It all started when was playing with the dGPS sensor from Dexter Industries, and realised that if I combined this sensor, with a robust chassis and a camera then I’d have a LEGO version of the famous Google Street View car. And what if I could then upload the pictures into Google Earth….It all seemed so easy… How wrong I was!
