SHT31 D sensor, need help

Hello all! I have a Raspberry Pi 3B+. I installed the SHT31D and got the code working. I get temp (C/F) and relative humidity data just fine. After a month of trying bad and out of date tutorials, I have given up. I got this RPI to capture data for my home based scientific research, not to learn how...

How do I connect and use XBOX 360 Kinect with RPI 3B+

I have the old style XBOX 360 Kinect with external power supply. I want to connect it to mt RPI 3B+ because my Windows 10 OS won't work with it (big surprise there). Can anyone help me by directing me to the How to videos or instructions and coding. I'm a beginner. I bought this Pi for this and read...

Please build a better Relative Humidity Sensor

If you have used a DHT11 or DHT22, you have experienced the sensors are so out of whack that you can't get a real reading. Now for kids in a classroom that's not good. Teaching my students weather related phenomena like static electricity and other cools tuff requires the students to accurately foll...

Re: AM/FM tuner suitable for Pi?

Not to butt in, I'm actually looking to add an AM radio receiver so I can monitor static electricity discharge, which would upset the sound on AM radios. I'm researching ESD and ES potential (Electro Static Discharge ESD) ESI Electro Static Interference occurs so I really would like to know what typ...

Novice needs help with Relative Humidity Sensors

I'm 59 and this is all new to me. I have got a RPi 3B+ and ordered a DHT22 and while this is real neat, I feel a little overwhelmed. I'm not a quitter so here I am. I have a few questions. First let me say this is being used for my research project I'm funding myself so I have to have accuracy. Okay...

I need to add sensors for a research project

Yup, I just bought my first Raspberry Pi 3B+. I need to add sensors for a research project and this RPi is going to be my instruments. I could use help. I have no idea if I can add anything to this with my zero experience but I really want to try. At 60 years old things aren't as easy to learn but I...

Re: STICKY: Introduce yourself!

I'm Mike and I just bought a RPi 3B+. Here's the fun part, I have no idea how to do anything with it. I want to do some research for electro shock discharge. I want to monitor Relative Humidity /static electricity in the air, pressure, temp, add two cameras (to video record any activity in 3D) and h...

Any groups in North West Louisiana?

Trying to find a maker group near Ruston or Bossier City. I'm in Homer. Completely new to Rasberry Pi. Want to create a board capable of doing several experiments that are data logged and then be able to have the data sent to me via internet on a regular basis. ANYONE that would like to help me plea...

FLIR cameras using GPIO range in price from $175.00 USD to $199.00 USD - The difference in pricing is related to a wider field of view. wider means more money but the images are nice and clear.

Anyone make a Thermal camera

Has anyone made or has bought a thermal camera? I do a lot of flood repair in construction and want to make a tool that's cheaper than commercially available thermal imaging devices. If you know who sells them, please post a link. If you want to make them, let me know. I want one. If you know a comp...
