Does anyone know how SOLOSHOT works?
I'm interested in exploring cheap ways of tracking an object relative to another object. So my brother sent me a link to this product and I'm having trouble figuring out how it works.
Basically, the user has an arm band and the camera tracks this user.
I have found a few things:
- it doesn't work too well when the user covers the armband
- it takes about 8 minutes to boot up
- it does not need LOS
- it works best if viewing from 200 ft away
- it works even when traveling 140 mph
My initial guess is GPS and a radio signal to talk to each other which would make sense with the criteria 1-4 listed above (I remember my GPS units needing to find satellites for a couple minutes when booting up), but can GPS really track your position that fast?
