We could and make it available via Melbourne Wireless.  If you find the right spot then we can probably find the hardware.

Installation of a TramCam is likely to generate a lot of images.  Are you planning for us to store certain images or all images?

This looks like a good location.  The camera would get a good view of then trams but might also get a lot of vehicle traffic.  Do you have access to the building on the corner?

The roadside image looking to the tram junction looks something like this:

OK. Perhaps you can turn it into a school project and gain access to radio and other skills?

That is what we need to discuss.  I need to look at the area in detail and then I can tell you.

Drove past the location last night. There are a lot of trees so visibility of trams could be a problem.

If you would like to undertake this project then I am happy to help.  I can run through the cameras (i have a couple spare that could be used) .  

The location is a reasonable one save for the trees.

Perhaps you could convince Yarra Trams to put one in the New trams just about to come on stream.
