Acceleration and rotation sensors are most known from smartphones. The rotation of the device can be detected and can be addressed directly. With the Raspberry Pi and a Gyroscope / Accelerator sensor it is possible to measure the rotation as well as the acceleration of the 3 axes. In this tutorial I show how to […]
Stepper motors are ideal for applications where it is necessary to know the angle of rotation, for example in robotics. Unlike a normal motor, stepper motors can control the steps individually and can therefore detect the exact position. For easy controlling such a motor, a driver IC like the L293D or the ULN2003 are needed. […]
For many (outdoor) projects a distance measurement is necessary or advantageous. These small modules are available starting at 1-2 bucks and can measure the distance up to 4-5 meters by ultrasound and are suprisingly accurate. This tutorial shows the connection and control.
Maybe some of you thought about how to let some RaspberryPi’s communicate with each other wirelessly. For this purpose small 433MHz modules are ideal, which are already available for a few bucks. Therefore in this tutorial I want to show how two (or more) RaspberryPi’s can “talk” with each other. But do not worry, if […]
WiringPi is a library that is used by many applications on the Raspberry but is not available by default. Especially many examples from the Arduino (C ++ code) can be performed easily on the RaspberryPi. To do so, this valuable library was written.
In this Tutorial I will show you how to use the library for multilined MAX7219 Matrices I wrote (improved and extended version of JonA1961’s MAX7219array https://github.com/JonA1961/MAX7219array )
