Wireless Multi-Channel Voice-Controlled Electrical Outlets with Raspberry Pi Update 2/11/2014: Thanks to everyone who voted for this project in the Raspberry Pi contest! This project is a combination of several difference resources: My single-outlet control project with Raspberry Pi and Python, originally inspired by user wilq44's Raspberry Pi GPIO home automation WiringPi, software written by Gordon Henderson that allows "Arduino style" control of the GPIO pins from the command line in a Linux terminal Voice Command, a package written by Steven Hickson that allows voice control of the Raspberry Pi by connecting to a Google speech-to-text service. The end result is voice-activated control of up to three electrical outlets using the Raspberry Pi. Here's a video of the final product in action (read on for a detailed parts list, circuit diagram, and code):
pfodApp V2™ and pfodDevices™ “A really great app but the underlying protocol is the real genius behind the app.Was able to develop a relatively sophisticated interface for an arduino project in a short time with straight forward code.Just about any embedded micro project can benefit from the interface that this app provides.”Google Play review posted by Greg Brandt Check out the new Arduino for Beginners, controlled by Android. Also see Single Click Control for turning devices on and off with one click. For programmers check out the new pfodDesignerV2 which lets you interactively designs pfodApp menus and then generate the Arduino sketch to serve the menu via bluetooth or Wifi/ethernet or SMS and handles the commands returned. Unleash the power of your Arduino or other micro project with pfodApp.
Build your own robotic vacuum from scratch Build your own robotic vacuum from scratch Arduino Team — September 23rd, 2016 This dust buster-based robotic vacuum may or may not work as well as a Roomba. If you’re fascinated by the idea of a robotic vaccum cleaner to keep you from having to do certain chores, you could buy an iRobot, or you could make your own instead. This particular DIY model uses four motors for locomotion, an Arduino Uno, IR and ultrasonic sensors to avoid obstacles, as well as a (formerly) handheld vacuum cleaner to suck up debris. The assembly sits on a wooden chassis, and as author B.
Open your Garage Door Using Bluetooth LE (BLE) This was one of those projects I had kept in the backlog for too long, but finally got the time and drive to finish it up. The problem was very simple and common. In the building I share, we have a common garage door which can be open/closed through a (very expensive) radio remote control. Each apartment has a single remote control and any now or then one of them gets lost. Since everyone nowadays owns a smartphone and Bluetooth LE (BLE) has become standard, I decided to create an appliance with a relay that can trigger the garage opening. Long Range UHF RFID Item Tracking System Maker spaces typically have hundreds of valuable tools available for use by their members. These tools can navigate from room to room and project to project. There is no real good way of knowing the whereabouts of a particular tool at a given time.
arduino-info - Nrf24L01-2.4GHz-HowTo print this pageUPDATES: (Comments,Critique to firstname.lastname@example.org) Having two or more Arduinos be able to communicate with each other wirelessly over a distance opens lots of possibilities:Remote sensors for temperature, pressure, alarms, much moreRobot control and monitoring from 50 feet to 2000 feet distancesRemote control and monitoring of nearby or neighborhood buildingsAutonomous vehicles of all kindsThese are a series of low-cost 2.4 GHz Radio modules that are all based on the Nordic Semiconductor nRF24L01+ chip. (Details) The Nordic nRF24L01+ integrates a complete 2.4GHz RF transceiver, RF synthesizer, and baseband logic including the Enhanced ShockBurst™ hardware protocol accelerator supporting a high-speed SPI interface for the application controller. The low-power short-range (50-200 feet or so)Transceiver is available on a board with Arduino interface and built-in Antenna for less than $3! There is also a high-power version (right). nRF24L01 Modules (Left to Right) NOTE!
Raspberry Pi Zero AirPlay Speaker Looking for a new project to build around the Raspberry Pi Zero, I came across the pHAT DAC from Pimoroni. This little add-on board adds audio playback capabilities to the Pi Zero. Because the pHAT uses the GPIO pins, the USB OTG port remains available for a wifi dongle. Perfect for a small wireless speaker project! Hardware
Personal Mirror The Personal Mirror Motivation The idea to create a mirror with additional Information is not new and there are a lot of Projects with instructions in the web to create such an mirror. (e.g. here: My idea is to create such a mirror, which is able to recognize your face and brings up additional Information which is interesting for you in case you are in front of the mirror,. Maybe your calender entries of the day or the last tweets or something else. Configuration I had a spare Raspberry Pi and was wondering if I could turn it into a dashcam. Originally I was using an old USB camera and although it kind of worked it wasn't great. Some time later the Pi camera was announced and so I waited....
Arduino Simulators Lineup - Start Developing Without a Real Board Launched in 2005, the Arduino open hardware and software platform has grown to be very popular among hobbyists, educators, and professionals alike, gaining momentum especially in the robotics field. Backed by a massive online community, and with most development boards and hardware accessories available at very low prices, this platform is perhaps the best place to start in working with embedded devices. But what if you want to learn programming and do not own an Arduino board, or are overwhelmed by the selection of hardware out there? This is where simulation software comes in.
Smart Environmental Monitoring Description The goal is to build a small and easy to use device to monitor temperature, humidity, noise levels, luminosity and atmospheric pressure. The idea is to have multiple devices spread across the city to send environmental data to the AWS IoT platform for processing and analysis. With this real time data , new public services could be offered, for example: Trigger alarms in case of dangerous measurements detectedFinding out the less polluted places in the city at a given time: parks, squares or any public outdoors places.Find out high polluted places to avoidFind out the measurements from the nearest monitoring device This device is intended to be used and managed by anyone with no other requirement than an internet connection and an available outdoor place at home: for example, balcony, a window, a roof, garden, etc. . .
Weather Station In this project we will use the Adafruit Starter Pack for Windows 10 IoT Core on Raspberry Pi 2 kit components to create a project that uses a barometric sensor to read the temperature, pressure and altitude. Hardware Connect the Raspberry Pi2 to the breadboard and the other components as per the Fritzing diagram in the "Schematics" section below. Software ScratchX What is ScratchX? ScratchX is a platform that enables people to test experimental functionality built by developers for the visual programming language Scratch. What's the difference between Scratch and ScratchX? Scratch is a programming language and online community where you can create your own interactive stories, games, and animations. ScratchX is a separate experimental platform built to test experimental Scratch features, also known as Experimental Extensions. There is no login or community component to ScratchX, and projects created within ScratchX can only be run on ScratchX.
