An Internet Camera Server for USB Cameras

Persson, Patrik LU and Selander, Lars (1997)
Abstract
Universal Serial Bus (USB) is a new interface standard for connecting peripheral devices to personal computers. A USB system consists of a host (typically a PC) and a number of peripherals with USB interfaces.

In this thesis, we have investigated an alternative approach to the PC based system. We have developed a camera server which connects a USB camera directly to Ethernet. The server is an independent World Wide Web (WWW) server and allows the camera image to be accessed using any computer on the Internet with a WWW browser.

The special application makes a number of optimizations possible, allowing the USB host to be cheaper and less complex than a PC. This advantage is exploited in the server’s USB Host Controller,... (More)

However, the design is general and can be used for other USB server applications. (Less)
