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.
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.
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.
In this Raspberry Pi pressure pad tutorial, I will go through the steps of connecting a force sensitive resistor to the Pi. There are many uses for a pressure pad, such as detecting when someone sits down or places pressure on a specific part of an object. It is a pretty great sensor to make […]
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 distance. We will be showing you […]
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 from using it […]
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 […]
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 are several solutions to the lack of […]
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 you. There are quite […]
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.
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 another sensor that I […]
This tutorial dives into the process of building a motion detecting circuit using a PIR sensor. We go one step further and integrate a buzzer, so every time motion is detected you will get a beep. It’s the perfect tutorial for learning some basics to electronics.
