This tutorial takes you through all you need to know for setting up a UV sensor with the Raspberry Pi. We also build a simple Python script that will retrieve the UV index from the VEML6075 UV sensor. It’s a simple project and great if you want to monitor UV levels.read more
This tutorial will take you through all the steps to setting up an accelerometer with the Raspberry Pi. We go through the circuitry and the Python code that you need to bring it all to life. We make use of the ADXL345 sensor, but others may work as well.read more
In this tutorial, we take you through the steps of connecting a humidity sensor to the Raspberry Pi. We also do some basic Python coding so that we can communicate with the sensor. It’s an excellent tutorial if you wish to collect humidity and temperature.read more
In this project, we take you through all the steps to set up an attendance system that makes use of the RC522 RFID reader. It is quite a long tutorial, but we cover everything from setting up the RFID reader right through to an MYSQL database and a web frontend.read more
In this tutorial, we will be showing you how you can set up a Raspberry Pi Sense HAT digital clock by utilizing its LED matrix. Throughout the tutorial we will be showing you how to write a script on your Raspberry Pi that can grab the current system time and then...read more
In this Raspberry Pi pressure pad tutorial, I will go through the steps of connecting a pressure pad to the Pi. There are many uses for using a pressure pad such as detecting when someone sits down or places pressure on a specific part of an object. It is a pretty...read more
In this Raspberry Pi distance sensor tutorial, we will be utilizing the HC-SR04 Ultrasonic Sensor with our Raspberry Pi. This guide will go through showing you how to wire up the sensor with the Raspberry Pi as well as exploring how we can utilize the sensor also to...read more
In this Raspberry Pi RTC tutorial, we will be showing you how to add either the PCF8523, DSL1307 or DS3231 real-time clock (RTC) modules to your Raspberry Pi. We will be showing you how each of the individual real-time clock chips needs to be wired up to the Raspberry...read more
In this Raspberry Pi serial reading and writing tutorial, we will be showing you how to read and write data through the serial GPIO connections that are made available to you on your Raspberry Pi. We will be showing you how to do these serial writes by using an RS232...read more
In this Raspberry Pi RFID RC522 tutorial, I will be walking you through the steps on how to set up and wire the RFID RC522 chip with your Raspberry Pi. This project is a cool circuit to play around with and opens you up to quite a wide variety of different projects...read more
In this tutorial, I go through the steps of setting up a Raspberry Pi ADC (Analog to digital converter). As you may already know the Pi doesn’t have any GPIO pins that are analog. This lack of analog pins makes connecting analog sensors a little more complex. There...read more
In this tutorial, I will be looking at how to set up Raspberry Pi cayenne. This tutorial is a pretty simple process and will give you access to a powerful IoT software package. If you’re a fan of sensors, collecting data and the overall concept of IoT then this is for...read more
In this tutorial, we take you through the steps of connecting a DS18B20 temperature sensor to the Raspberry Pi. This is an excellent way of collecting the temperature of the air, nearby liquid or anything else you want to know how hot or cold it is.read more
In this Raspberry Pi light sensor tutorial, I show you how to connect the photoresistor sensor up to the GPIO pins correctly. Lastly, I show you how it can be used in a simple python script, so you’re able to gather and use the data from it. This photoresistor is yet...read more
That’s all we have for circuitry projects, but we have much more planned.
There is so much you can do with the Raspberry Pi such as connecting and talking to sensors and devices. For example, you can use a temperature sensor to read the temperature of something then use this to switch on a light.
There are so many different types of electronics projects that you can do so expect this section to grow a lot. Be sure to join our mailing list to keep up to date on all our latest projects.
We have a pretty handy guide on Raspberry Pi cases which will help find a case that is ideal for your next electronics project. Alternatively, you can always 3d print a case.
If you’re completely new the Raspberry Pi then I highly recommend you check out the getting started guides. Also, the GPIO tutorial will help take you through a lot of the basics and will help lots in future projects.
As I mentioned above, be sure to keep up to date by either subscribing to our mailing list or following us on any major social network.
I hope that you have some fund following these electronics projects for the Raspberry Pi. If you have any issues, then be sure to head over to our forum and start a discussion.
