Vehicle mounted camera systems are typically hosted by structures that are bolted in or clamped onto the roof of the vehicle. However, to mount these structures, modifications to the vehicle, e.g., drilling holes, are necessary. This is infeasible in certain locations, e.g., in countries that do not allow even minor modifications to vehicle body or structure. This disclosure describes techniques to mount a camera system using bolting and bonding mechanisms that do not make changes to the vehicle body or structure.
