Using a Raspberry PI to control an extreme feedback device

Thu Jul 25, 2013 7:42 am

I wrote a blog post that explains how to setup a Raspberry PI from scratch to control a USB traffic light.

Here is an example what my setup looks like.

For displaying the status of a software project I was working on with a team of developers, I bought a USB traffic light. Depending on the status of a Jenkins continuous integration job, the traffic light would change to RED, YELLOW or GREEN.

I wrote a script for controlling the USB traffic light that is connected to a Raspberry PI. You can find the project on github:

Have fun :D
