    I wish to build a surveillance car interfaced with a computer
    So I need a wireless camera that can directly connect to my notebook, a usb interface board to which i can attach the transmitter and receiver of a r/c car.

    I think a rc car can easily be arranged but arranging a usb interface board and a wireless camera seems difficult. Can somebody help?

    I must specify that I dont know much about electronics and it is out of sheer curiosity and interest am i making this thing

    Also I am looking for a good robotics kit for beginners

    Till now i have two options
    a) using a java enabled phone (in my case motorola v3) as a webcam and interfacing the car using a usb board

    b) using a avr card and connecting it with a wireless camera

    Any inputs are welcome

    This reminds me of new type of spamming.

    I have finally managed to make the car interfaced using one of my old laptop with a parallel port but am looking forward to a movable camera mount(up/down).

    I have bought a wireless a/v camera and need a usb interface for it

    Thanks in advance
