Control a HD44780 LCD display via I2C with the Raspberry Pi

Felix - 15. May 2017

LCD character displays are a simple and a cost-effective way to display a text. Thanks to the HD44780 controller, the control of the modules has become very simple. However, one must occupy many GPIOs for it. An alternative is the I2C data bus, which means that only two GPIOs are used. In this tutorial a […]

Control your Raspberry Pi by using a wireless Xbox 360 controller

Felix - 8. May 2017

In addition to the control of the Raspberry Pi via infrared remote controls, 433 Mhz transmitter, messengers and many more, also a wireless Xbox 360 controller can be read from the Raspberry Pi. This allows the gamepad to be used as an external mouse (in desktop mode) or in scripts and thus the GPIOs can […]

Build your own automatic Raspberry Pi Greenhouse

Felix - 27. April 2017

In an increasing number of cities, the trend is towards organic or even self-grown fruits and vegetables. Perhaps a deterrent cause is the time spent on plant care. Therefore, this project involves the creation of an automated Raspberry Pi greenhouse, which reduces the work to a minimum. By automatic watering, airing and exposure, only harvesting must […]

How to connect and control a Raspberry Pi WS2801 RGB LED Strip

Felix - 7. April 2017

One of the many Raspberry Pi projects is the lighting of rooms or objects. LED strips are particularly suitable for this purpose, because many individual LEDs are aligned and each individual LED can display all RGB colors. Thus, some projects such as room lighting, Ambilight or e.g. a Christmas tree lighting can be realized. The […]

Raspberry Pi Heartbeat / Pulse measuring

Felix - 23. March 2017

Not only with fitness watches, but also with the Raspberry Pi it is possible to measure pulse / heart rates. With a small module – the Raspberry Pi pulse sensor – you can easily measure your own pulse and thus monitor permanently your health condition. This sensor can also be used in mobile Raspberry Pi […]

Configure and read out the Raspberry Pi gas sensor (MQ-X)

Felix - 17. March 2017

Sensors are necessary to detect the components of the air. These are used e.g. in smoke detectors. However, instructions for using these gas sensors at the Raspberry Pi are rare, which is why in this tutorial the general use of such MQ modules at the Raspberry Pi is shown. Thus, e.g. smoke detectors or air […]

How to establish a Raspberry Pi Remote Desktop Connection

Felix - 8. February 2016

Similar to TeamViewer a remote desktop connection enables remote access to another computer. This has the advantage that you don’t need two monitors or have to switch between two systems. Although the Raspberry Pi can be controlled almost exclusively via console, but some programs are to be controlled only by a GUI. On all Windows […]
