open('/dev/real_world') - Raspberry Pi Sensor and Actuator Control; SciPy 2013 Presentation


Authors: Minardi, Jack, Enthought Inc. Code: Slides:

Track: General

I will walk the audience through all the steps necessary for acquiring sensor data using a Raspberry Pi and streaming it over a network to be plotted live. I will also explain how to control an actuator like a DC motor.

The topics I will cover: Basic circuits (V = I * R) GPIO Pins Pulse width modulation Analog to digital converters Serial communication (SPI) Basic data streaming using zmq Basic real time plots using chaco All the python needed for the above topics

By the end of the talk I will demonstrate sensor and actuator control using everything that was covered.
