Video Streaming with Raspberry Pi Camera

In this post we’re going to show you how you can do video streaming with a Raspberry Pi and a Raspberry Pi Camera – how to stream live video into a web page that you can access in any device that has a browser and is connected to the same network the Pi is. This is useful to apply to a home surveillance camera, for example.

Prerequisites:

  • You should already be familiar with the Raspberry Pi board
  • You should have the Raspbian or Raspbian Lite operating system installed in your Raspberry Pi

BME280 I2C Temperature and Pressure Sensor

The BME280 device is a digital barometric pressure sensor and is a slightly upgraded version of the BMP180. This is available on a small module which provides access to the sensor via the I2C interface. This allows us to easily connect it to the Raspberry Pi and read the data using Python. The BME280 provides temperature, pressure and humidity.

The BME280 is made by Bosch and the official BME280 datasheet includes all the technical details. Their device can offer both SPI and I2C interfaces so you need to make sure your module provides the interface you prefer.

My module is a small pcb measuring 14x10mm with a 4 pin I2C header. The order of the pins may vary on other modules so keep an eye on the labels so you connect up the correct wires from the Pi.

How to Make a Python Web Server

Because of its small footprint, energy efficiency, and reasonable computing power, the Raspberry Pi makes an excellent server. You can spin up a Raspberry Pi media server using the likes of Plex, Emby, and OpenMediaVault, or a web server running WordPress, Drupal, Apache, or NGINX. Similarly, you can make a Python web server with a Raspberry Pi and Flask. Learn how to build a Raspberry Py Python web server!

What is Python?

Python is a programming language. It’s used for creating web applications and desktop apps alike. A general programming language, Python remains one of the top programming languages for beginners. Combined with Flask, a Python microframework, you can make your own Python-powered web server.

Detecting Colors using the TCS3200 Color Sensor

In this project we are going to Detect the Colors using TCS3200 Color Sensor Module with Raspberry Pi. Here we used Python code for Raspberry Pi to detect the colors using TCS3200 sensor. To demonstrate the color detection we have used a RGB LED, this RGB LED will glow in the same color, of which the object is presented near the sensor. Currently we have programmed Raspberry Pi to detect only Red, Green and blue colors. But you can program it to detect any color after getting the RGB values, as every color is made up of these RGB components. Check the demo Video at the end.Read More

Interfacing the Neo-6M GPS Module & Raspberry Pi with LCD Readout

One of the coolest embedded platforms like the Raspberry Pi has given makers and DIYers the ability to get location data easily using GPS module and thus build things that rely on location. With the amount of power packed by the Raspberry Pi, it certainly will be quite awesome to build GPS based projects with the same cheap GPS modules and that is the focus of this post. Today in this project we will Interface GPS module with Raspberry Pi 3.

The goal of this project is to collect location data (longitude and latitude) via UART from a GPS module and display them display on a 16×2 LCD, so if you are not familiar with the way the 16×2 LCD works with the Raspberry Pi, this is another great opportunity to learn.Read More
