Raspberry Pi Tutorial 38 – Use an Arduino as a Slave with Python (Nanpy)

Arduinos are great. The Raspberry Pi is pretty cool too. Together, they’re spectacular. However writing separate codes in different languages to have the two units works together is a bit of a hassle. In this tutorial I show you how to stream commands from the Raspberry Pi to the Arduino using UART serial communication. The package is Nanpy, allowing you to run Arduino commands in a Python script.  

Raspberry Pi Tutorial 33 – Wireless Pi to Pi Python Communication with NRF24L01+ Part 2

The NRF24L01 + is an inexpensive low power high speed communication device! It’s not exactly plug and plug on a Raspberry Pi though, as compared to a wifi dongle. Building upon the previous tutorial, in this tutorial I show you how to establish two way communication between two Raspberry Pis connected to two NRF24L01+ transceivers! I’m talking master and slave communication style simulating pulling data from a sensor.  

Raspberry Pi Tutorial 31 – Catching the Cookie Thief

Putting together what we’ve learned from the past few Raspberry Pi tutorials, we catch our Cookie Thief!   This video is part of a series of building a practically ‘useful’ security system using Raspberry Pi to catch the Cookie Thief. I am not a computer scientist, software engineer, programmer or electrical engineer. Everything I cover was self taught using resources I found on the web. I thought it would be great to put together a series of videos that consolidates what I have learned to yield a single resource to cover many interesting topics about the Raspberry Pi! Having said…

Raspberry Pi Tutorial 30 – Transfer or Backup a File using Socket File Transfer!

This video is part of a series of building a practically ‘useful’ security system using Raspberry Pi to catch the Cookie Thief. I am not a computer scientist, software engineer, programmer or electrical engineer. Everything I cover was self taught using resources I found on the web. I thought it would be great to put together a series of videos that consolidates what I have learned to yield a single resource to cover many interesting topics about the Raspberry Pi! Having said that, due to my relatively little experience, I may have made mistakes or could have done certain things…

Raspberry Pi Tutorial 29 – Practical Socket Communication

The last couple videos setup our server and client using trivial text based examples. We need to get this doing something practical! I show you how to flip a relay based on temperature readings from a TMP36. Starting to bring it together.   This video is part of a series of building a practically ‘useful’ security system using Raspberry Pi to catch the Cookie Thief.

Raspberry Pi Tutorial 28 – Socket Communication 2

How to setup the client side of the other Raspberry Pi, allowing us to communication through TCP and get some data sent!   This video is part of a series of building a practically ‘useful’ security system using Raspberry Pi to catch the Cookie Thief.
