How to use a Raspberry Pi Fingerprint Sensor for Authentication

Felix - 25. March 2017

Not only in Hollywood films, fingerprint readers are seen more and more frequently. Such modules are often installed in home surveillance systems and are used for the simple but secure verification of persons. With such a Raspberry Pi Fingerprint Sensor you can also implement some other projects, such as secured locks. One of the advantages […]

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 […]

50 of the most important Raspberry Pi Sensors and Components

Felix - 22. January 2016

One of the many advantages of the Raspberry Pi is that it is possible to connect almost all standard Arduino and Raspberry Pi sensors and components to the dhtvarious GPIOs. Moreover you can evaluate and / or process the values with programs and other software. This accessory can be used in projects such as Smart […]

Measuring Rotation and acceleration with the Raspberry Pi

Felix - 30. November 2015

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 […]

Raspberry Pi Stepper Motor Control with L293D / ULN2003A

Felix - 14. November 2015

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. […]

Using a Raspberry Pi distance sensor (ultrasonic sensor HC-SR04)

Felix - 11. November 2015

For many (outdoor) projects a distance measurement is necessary or advantageous. These small modules are available starting atĀ 1-2 bucks and canĀ measure the distance up to 4-5 meters by ultrasound and are suprisingly accurate. This tutorial shows the connection and control.

Let Raspberry Pi’s communicate with each other per 433MHz wireless signals

Felix - 26. October 2015

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 […]

Installing WiringPi (and pin allocation) – Raspberry Pi

Felix - 25. October 2015

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.
