A Fleet of Synchronized Cameras

This thesis aims to design and implement an autonomous device. Such a device is capable of recording a video with incorporated UTC timestamp with the precision of one hundredth of second. The timestamp is synchronized by the DCF77 signal. In the first part of the thesis, we analyze current solutions of time synchronization, the I2C bus and the microcontroller – CMOS communication over the I2C bus. In the second part, we will design our own autonomous device using the components and approaches from the previous part. We design our device in a way that is capable of working either alone or as a part of a swarm.
