Raspberry Pi and Arduino Projects
In the following tutorials, we will introduce you to the Raspberry Pi and Arduino boards. We will learn the basics of electronics principles and microcontrollers by building simple circuits using a variety of sensors and relays, in the following Arduino and Raspberry Pi projects. We will also learn how to code using Python on the Raspberry Pi and C++ on the Arduino.
A basic understanding of electronics and microcontrollers is prefered, but not required for these tutorials.
Raspberry Pi Weather Station
In this multi-part tutorial we will learn how to create an Astro Pi using the Raspberry Pi and Sense HAT. The Sense HAT has multiple integrted circuit-based sensors, which can be used to "sense" pressure, humidity, temperature, speed and Earth's magnetic field. The Astro Pi is currently being used to perform a variety of science experiements aboard the International Space Station (ISS).
Environmental Scanner - Arduino-based Sensor Array
The Environmental Scanner project began as a simple Arduino-based, environmental monitoring and alert system. Featuring and array of Adafruit and SparkFun electronic sensors, Arduino Uno and an ethernet shield, the Environmental Scanner will host a webpage containing sensor readings and alerts. This webpage will display the current sensor readings, which will refresh every few seconds and will send an alert when sensor levels exceed certain, predefined thresholds.
