Raspberry Pi For Beginners: LED Connections, Bread-boards, and Programming

After seeing a couple of posts on Reddit asking for the proper way to connect LEDs to a microcontroller/microcomputer via GPIO, I decided to make this video.   This should guide you through how a breadboard is setup, how connections work for the Raspberry Pi, how LEDs work (generally), and how to create and execute a small bit of code to tie all of this together.

Self-Driving Bicycle

The University of Washington Bothell is building a self-driving bicycle that can travel 30 MPH with a 15-mile range. The team claims the self-driving bicycle “could get riders from A to B faster than a self-driving car, and at a tenth of the cost.”     The self-driving bicycle is based on a stack of five Arduinos with no operating system. The open-source documentation and C/C++ code can be found on GitHub. The self-driving bicycle has object recognition that’s based on an array of sonar range finders. Here’s more from Folsom on how the self-driving bicycle sees its environment: “Localization…

Interface / connect Raspberry pi to a PC monitor and Laptop

Today we will be learning how to interface /connect Raspberry pi to a PC monitor and Laptop Last week, I hope we have finished how to burn RASPBIAN image (OS) file in to Memory card. Now, Let us look at the ports of Raspberry pi: Out of the ports we have as shown in the above figure, we will be using only HDMI, Ethernet and Audio and video jack to connect to PC monitor /Laptop/TV Respectively. Interfacing of Raspberry pi with the above depends on the individual, his availability and his requirements. HDMI interface: With the HDMI port available on…

Getting started with Raspberry Pi

Hello Everyone, here is our first weekly updating blog on a specific technology. Today we will be starting with ‘Raspberry pi’.   What is a ‘Raspberry pi’? If you Google the same thing, you will be seeing it as a low-cost, small credit-card sized computer.   Yes, It is a credit card sized computer which can easily be connected to a display just as TV or PC’s monitor and there are many other displays such as TFT screens, LCD screens specially designed for ‘Raspberry pi’ with different sizes. As  every computer has an OS to access the system, Raspberry pi also has OS…
