Computer Vision (CV) allows your Raspberry Pi to see things. In practical terms, this means that your Raspberry Pi can analyse an image, looking for items of interest and even recognizing faces and text.

The components vary depending on the model. The very first edition, Raspberry Pi 1, was launched in February 2012. Since then, the company has developed a range of Pi follow-up models, each at a face value of around $35, making them incredibly cost-effective micro-computers. The Raspberry Pi 4 (Model B) has been available since May 2020. It has a CPU with 1.5 GHz, offers connections for two 4K HMDI screens, and has WLAN and Bluetooth (5.0). Buyers can also choose between 2, 4, and 8 GB of working memory. Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W has been available since October 2021. The little brother of the original Raspberry Pi boasts 512 MB memory, is available from approximately $20 and lets users create many exciting Raspberry Pi Zero projects.

Wireless Internet connections are practical, but strongly dependent on the signal strength that is output by the router and received. It is not unusual that you get the best reception in the lounge, but get frustrated due to constant connection interruptions in the next room. A WiFi extender that receives the signal from the router and redistributes it can help. On the PiMyLifeUp site, the Raspberry Pi user Gus has published instructions how to easily build an extender with a Raspberry Pi. Depending on the model, you will also need one to two WiFi adapters (also called WiFi dongles) - the crucial question is whether the model has its own WiFi adapter or not.

Paper pocket calendars are a thing of the past. Smartphones and laptops are the devices of choice to keep track of our appointments. But paper calendars still adorn our walls. Wouldn't it be more practical to connect your wall calendar to your smartphone? That's exactly what Instructables user Piney thought, using a Raspberry Pi to build a Google Wall Calendar. A monitor attached to the wall ensures that all appointments can be kept track of. Moreover, with the keyboard connected to the Raspberry Pi, new appointments can be added and are synchronized thanks to the Raspberry Pi connecting to its own WLAN.

The single-board computer Raspberry Pi has enjoyed high popularity since its release in 2012. With the increasing number of possible applications, the minicomputer has become an interesting and practical solution for various branches of industry. As a result, more and more operating systems for the British computer are being introduced to the market. Choosing the appropriate Raspberry Pi...

The Raspberry Pi is one of the leading physical computing boards on the market. From hobbyists building DIY projects to students learning to program for the first time, people use the Raspberry Pi every day to interact with the world around them. Python comes built in on the Raspberry Pi, so you can take your skills and start building your own Raspberry Pi projects today.

SunFounder Thales Kit for Raspberry Pi Pico with detailed online tutorials, comes with 283 items, 18 projects ( More projects will be updated soon). We recommend you to read our online tutorial first: _kit, if you think this kit is suitable for you, then decide to buy it.

The Raspberry Pi Pico microcontroller unit (MCU) is the latest addition to the Raspberry Pi family. As the world anticipates this new beginner-friendly MCU, we at Seeed are already thinking of exciting ways that we can have fun with it. Here are 20 existing projects from which we can draw inspiration for our very own Raspberry Pi Pico Projects!

Grove is a standardized and modular prototyping system that allows you to build your electronics projects quickly! With Grove, beginners and experts alike can get started on projects without all the complications of soldering and wiring. You will also be able to rely on our extensive Grove Seeed Wiki, which provides in-depth information and tutorials for each Grove module.

This raspberry pi pico project is perfect for those who are new to Pico for the first time or those who often forget to water their greens, you can check here to start your first Pico project! Here is the video for you to take a look

The Grove GPS module is a cost-efficient, field-programmable gadget with a SIM28 module and serial communication configuration. It features 22 tracking / 66 acquisition channels GPS receiver. The sensitivity of tracking and acquisition reaches up to -160dBm, making it an excellent choice for personal navigation projects and location services.

Moving on to the enthusiast projects, the first one we will look at is a simple 162 LCD Display project. There are many uses for this, and it can be implemented in many projects, even in this article!

The Grove Buzzer is a simple yet enjoyable twig to use. It can output noise at a volume over 85 dB and is integrated with Grove interface, which makes it easy to connect and experiment by just plug & play. It is a perfect add-on for all kinds of Arduino projects and human-machine interfaces.

Build and control awesome robots with the Raspberry Pi. Some cool projects out there include control robotic arms (example), drones (check out this example), humanoid robots (check this example), etc. There are many examples of robots out there that you can do or adapt to build your own original robot. Just use your imagination!

Thanks for writing this awesome blog post. I never knew that I can use raspberry pi as a web server. I was using linode secure server to do the job which was managed by Cloudways.But, now since we can use raspberry bi to do the job. I will definitely give it a try.

Within the framework of our project, several seminars will also take place, which take up the topic "OER" and its numerous facets: A seminar under the direction of Jun.-Prof. Dr. Sandra Hofhues as a regular offer for students of the Faculty of Humanities of the UoC and further BFP seminars in cooperation with the Center for Teacher Education of the UoC. BFP seminars (vocational field internship) are the second practical phase in the Cologne teacher training program. The seminar under the direction of Jun.-Prof. Dr. Sandra Hofhues is integrated into the project, but is not part of the project funding. The BFP seminars take place within the framework of project funding and the lecturers have to be employed externally.

In the first self-study phase, students acquire the basics of digital media (media didactics, OER, media design). In the subsequent attendance phase, experience with digital teaching, mobile learning, SWOT analysis and lesson planning will be exchanged. In the following obligatory digital consultation, the participants will be given advice on how to design a series of lessons and develop their own ideas for content for mobile learning in the next practical part. In the next digital communication phase, the group work, guided by learning groups, will take place. Afterwards, the students have the opportunity to get advice in the analogue or digital consultation hours, so that the next practical part of the series of lessons and content on mobile learning is ready. The following attendance phase serves to present and evaluate the results.

The OER seminar "Design and Production of Digital Learning Materials" was evaluated at the end of the semester by students using feedback forms to the teacher. Most students emphasize project-related group work and the practical development of their own ideas as points they particularly like about the seminar. The technical implementation, however, is a big challenge (or even too much) for many students, as the technical knowledge/understanding of most students is low and is not taught at the university.

Didactic arrangementThe first seminar was held via a Wiki,[2] which is still visible and will remain visible. The Wiki documents not only the procedure in the seminar, but also results and the intermediate steps leading there. Besides the documentation of the seminar organization should reflect the open practices of the seminar.The seminar is based on three major tasks (see below). With a teacher, who works with open educational resources, a practical seminar leader could be won, in order to supplement the project coworker of the OERlabs. Both were there to help and advise the students. This was necessary because the seminar was scheduled with only four attendance dates and the students therefore worked more independently. The independent work phase does not only include working on texts, independently exploring open programs or tools, but also the change from the student role to that of a teacher. 041b061a72
