My 2 ct:
External power supply + timer = Done.

Or use Lua script to do it in cam.

And is an external timer + power supply a solution for you or not?

I didnt use timer before, i think timer is useless for me as i leave cameratrsp in the field about several weeks ...

Quite on the contrary: I would never trust software alone (ML or not: n o n e) over such long time. If your cam gets stuck for whatever reason you are lost.
Proper engineering uses something called "Watchdog timer". You will find them in industrial designs (earth and space), esp. in non-maintainable environments.
Arduino, Raspberry (and others) do contain watchdogs.
