The computer network in space – Part 2

Continued Part one of this series of articles on Team Near Space Circus flight NSC-01 can be found  >here<. It covered the physical layout of the 7 Raspberry Pis, 8 cameras and power system. It left off as we were about to go into the details of the network topology itself. Plan A: 2 Pi in a Pod... The initial plan was for 2 Raspberry Pi using a serial communication protocol. The Model A+ does not hav ...

Raspberry Pi Python Adventures

NSC-01 For Team Near Space Circus' participation in the Global Space Balloon Challenge with NSC-01, we wanted to make sure that once powered up, and enclosed, we would still have control of the computer cluster and the timeline of events, as to what would happen when. As we devised a network with 7 nodes (see part 1 and also part 2 of the computer network in near space) with a master controller and many sla ...

Automation controller taps Raspberry Pi Compute Module

Techbase has designed a Raspberry Pi Compute Module into a Linux-based “ModBerry” automation computer backed by an “iMod” cloud platform for remote control. The computer-on-module version of the Raspberry Pi Compute Module, which began shipping this week, was anticipated by many, but perhaps nowhere so acutely as in Poland. First, we heard about A Sherlybox private cloud storage device based on the module f ...

Multitasking on Raspberry Pi using Execve and Fork Commands

The advantage of having an Operating System running on a microcontroller board other than simple embedded c code is Multitasking. The Raspberrypi is a microcontroller board which is powerful enough to run large operating systems like Linux, Mac and Windows. The Raspberrypi is a microcontroller board which runs on a SoC chip from the Broadcom with ARM11 processor at the core. The Board is a mini computer its ...

How to Run a Code Automatically On Boot

The Raspberrypi is a low cost minicomputer board designed to be used as a PC for providing computer education for remote schools, where costly desktops are not available. Unlike the Desktop PCs, it is using ARM11 processor based microcontroller which can provide almost same processing power as low cost Desktop processors. Moreover the Raspberry pi board provides lot of pin outs like GPIO pins, serial commun ...

Buffer and solution pH adjuster with Raspberry Pi

Ever since I got my hands on a Raspberry Pi, I’ve been meaning to do a real science oriented project with it. Not just a little project that you can have fun with for a while, but an actual practical and useful project. I tried Googling for any similar ideas online, but unfortunately, I didn’t really come across any. I tried thinking of ways I could use it in lab for quite a while, but I couldn’t really thi ...

Raspberry Pi Coffee Table Arcade

Raspberry Pi powered MAME machine in an IKEA coffee table. I probably wouldn’t recommend trying to build this unless you have a bit of experience with electronics. This is only a basic run through of how I went about building my Raspberry Pi arcade and hopefully that is enough to give you the ideas and/or inspiration for you to make your own :) NOTE: I found this works best with the older generation games l ...

Arduino / Raspberry Pi Internet Radio

This is a project for Arduino and Raspberry Pi to make an Internet Radio, aimed at intermediate skill level. Some familiarity with Linux usage will be beneficial (or access to someone who can help out if required). Raspberry Pi runs mpd music player daemon to receive and decode the internet radio stream. ALSA running on the Raspberry Pi provides the sound through either the Jack Socket or the HDMI output. A ...

Meeting the Challenge—The Path Towards a Consumer Wearable Computer

Wearable computers and head-mounted displays (HMDs) are in the press daily. Why now? While the basic technology has existed for decades, only recently have these devices become practical and desirable. Using consumer, professional, and “maker” devices, this exhibit demonstrates four challenges along the road to making a consumer wearable computer: power and heat, networking, mobile input, and displays. The ...

The SENSEable body

Aplications and implications My final project is a dispositive that codifies and transmits NON CONSCIOUS body information such as: sweat, heart rate and eye blinking. The project seeks the augmentation of human experience through wearable physiological technology. It wishes to bring something private, namely our thoughts and emotions, and broadcast them to the world, through a screen placed in the chest: Es ...
