Raspberry Pi Sense HAT: Supercharge your Pi

The Raspberry Pi sense hat was released back in 2015 and is an incredibly cool device that allows you to add a bunch of sensors easily to the Pi. It also adds an 8×8 LED matrix display and a joystick that you’re able to use in your programs. In this guide, I go through the basics of what the sense hat is and anything else you should be aware of. If you rather implement these sensors separately than be sure ...

Raspberry Pi Based Weight Sensing Automatic Gate

In this project we are going to use Load cell and HX711 Weight Sensor with Raspberry Pi to build a Automatic Gate. We have seen these pressure sensing gates at many malls and showrooms, which automatically opens when someone is standing near the door and get closed after that person is gone. So here we are also creating the same Automatic Gate which will sense the pressure and get opened automatically and w ...

GY-30 (BH1750FVI) Light Sensor with Windows 10 IoT

Introduction I purchased a GY-30 light sensor recently, this model is also known as "BH1550FVI". There seems no sample for this sensor on Windows 10 yet, so I tried to make one. The light sensor looks like this: My board is a Raspberry Pi 3, the GPIO layout is shown in this table: GPIO and pin connections Because GY-30 is an I2C device, so we can not use GPIO to drive it directly, we must use the I2C ports. ...

Raspberry Pi 2B with FezHat Sensors and Azure IoT Hub

Introduction This a supplemental tutorial to our 003 tutorial. In this tutorial we're going to finish developing a UWP Application to collect the sensor data from FezHat, convert the data into JSON, and upload the payload into the Azure IoT Hub via HTTP1. In our 003 tutorial we've been setting up two devices at the same time, each of which has its own set of sensors and its own code base. In this tutorial w ...

Raspberry Pi 2 IoT: Thingspeak & DHT22 Sensor

Introduction This project uses a Raspberry Pi 2 to collect temperature and humidity data from a DHT22 sensor, which is then uploaded to the ThingSpeak Internet of Things platform to be displayed in real-time. This write-up is primarily intended to serve as documentation for the project, but may also be of use as a tutorial for others. It assumes a beginner skill level and that you are running the Raspberry ...

Windows 10 IoT Plant Monitoring System

Project Intro This project is aimed to create a plant monitoring and watering system. The main task is to control the servo, relay and collect the soil humidity data from the plants. Huge amount of the sensors use analog signal as output but the Raspberry Pi doesn’t have an analog-to-digital converter. To solve this problem, I used an outer ADC module and an Arduino gateway because they have built in ADC. W ...

Temp. and Humidity Sensor with a CR2032 for over 1 year!

Intro This article will discuss and demonstrate how to build a remote Temperature and Humidity sensor based on a Whisper Node and a DHT11 (worst sensor ever, I know)., capable of running for well over a year on a single CR2032 coin-cell. The remote node will be configured to transmit data every 60 seconds to another Whisper Node, acting as a gateway/base station and located 100 meters away. The data will be ...
