I am thinking of attaching a solar panel to my raspberry pi but which GPIO pins should I connect to? I have no clue when it comes to the GPIO. :( I had the idea of using Sketchup 8 to draw a prototype but could someone help please?
Raspberry5 out! ;)

well you need some kind of accumulator to store and give back energy. Lead battery, gel cell even a big capacitor. But the most important is the voltage regulator and charger. Solar panel doesn't gives a constant voltages. All depends how much sun energy is converted. The Raspberry Pi need a constant 5 volts. You will find on the net good alternatives on how to connect solar panel to an electronic device.

The micro usb connector is the best way to plug the power. But the ground and the 5V volts GPIO pins could be used also. Also it is a good thing to communicate with the solar charger with some kind of protocol. It could be just an indicator that the power is ok and if it is not the rpi should shut down.

B.t.w. revision 2 has the reset connector. It could be handy if you want to reset the rpi for power up.


Maybe just a standard solar panel charger with a simple Lm7805 on a big heat sink is enough. But try to use 5V dc/dc converter, more efficient.

I just released a beta version of our rPlay, it supports Apple AirPlay and AirPlay mirroring, plus some initial support of Chromecast
emulation. Basically, with rPlay installed, a Pi acts as AppleTV and Chromecast receiver. We will add miracast support soon.

This is a very advanced media streaming software. AirPlay mirroring is the first on Pi.

We send out beta download per email request. More info can be found here:

I'm planning to use my pi to control 200 golf ball lights individually using my pi for a production. (I'm a lighting technician for a theatre company). Still haven't quite worked out how I'll do it yet :P

There's an interesting standard used in lighting systems (disco's theatres etc.) DMX and there is a velleman kit that alows you to build a box that converts a USB signal to a DMX signal.

The concept I would like to see is an interface that would do away with the need for the USB-DMX box. ;)

Hi,

I have put together an application that is provides a web front end to either a USB WebCam or Raspberry PI Cam. The application can be set to random mode and alarm mode. In order to use alarm mode and infra red sensor (PIR) should be connected to GPIO17. If movement is detected an image is taken and an email of the image is sent.

If the application is in random mode, random shots are taken throughout the day, you can define the start time and end time so no shots are taken outside the time, you can also define the frequency. Comments can also be added to the images. The layout of the screen is shown in github



The idea with the random feature is that you get a journal of your photos. These photos can also be emailed out. The logs of detection from the PIR sensor are also displayed on the screen.

This means that as well as using my Raspberry PI as a Youtube player attached to the TV it can also serve as an alarm system and photo journal.

The code can be found at https://github.com/emomonkey/RaspPISpyIntranet

In theory you should be able to install by running sudo python setup.py install. However I have not tested the install, it would require a spare Sdcard so I would be interested in feedback from the forum if the install runs.

Also you need to run the shell script gpioexp.sh in order that the pins can be written to


An alternative way to install it is from the github page which is the the long way and involves copying the files to RaspPISpyIntranet and install the python packages individuals.

The application needs to be run as sudo as the pins need supervisor access.



Look forward to hearing back with some feedback. I think it's need having a PI in my living room that doubles as an email alarm and photo journal. Hopefully someone else thinks the same.

Thanks
Stephen

Hi all,
I'm developing a system information panel in php. I want to share this project with you to know if it's a good idea and if anyone is interested ;) .
It's in a pre-release/developing state so bugs are behind the corner :oops: . The project is on github free and open source for everyone and if someone want to collaborate I'm glad to share this work with someone else :) .

The github project: :arrow: https://github.com/Ar3sDevelopment/rpi-systempanel
If you want to see a demo pm me so I can give you my demo version access.
If you want to install it I'm ready to support everyone because I haven't tested the install.php yet :oops: .

Hope someone is interested :roll: .

(Sorry for the english, I'm Italian :roll: )

Woops.... When I wrote the post, I forgot to take account of the particular aspect of power consumption. Trail Cameras have very small sleeping power demands. Battery service life is months to capture hundreds of pictures.
Unless a sleep condition can be imposed upon the Pi, I cannot see how the Pi can be sustained in long time automatic camera mode.
Unless somebody comes up with a work-around?

Wildlife infra red photography..
My quite expensive IR flash camera got damp into it , I dismantled it , dried it out and brushed deposits off the many little processor boards inside. It kinda works now but I expect to have trouble with humidity from now on.
The set up of this type of "trail" camera is very sophisticated, allowing for different timings and conditions.
Go and Google the manuals of for instance the Bushnell Trophy Camera.
I reckon that the Pi Noir could handle all the necessary business, at a fraction of the cost. A properly sealed enclosure with USB programming , and a motorised IR filter for daytime use. A motion sensor or routine. A bank of IR emitters...
Or, gut out the existing processor boards and install the Pi and camera, re-using the peripheral bits.

Trail cameras have to be programmed and aimed with the casing split open, this is not how things need to be done.

Hello CP/M and Z80 friends,

I release the next final release 2.30.3 of my Z80 Emulator "YAZE-AG"
(Yet Another Z80 Emulator by AG)

The main differences to the previous version:

* A Makefile for the Raspberry Pi is added to compile YAZE-AG on Raspbian. :D

* Import and export utility R.COM and W.COM for import/export
from and to the host system without exiting the emulator.

* support of serial lines. You can use CP/M software which
use the AUX device of CP/M 3, like kermit or rz/sz.
In the monitor you can connect "aux" to a serial device of
Unix / Linux / FreeBSD / Windows.
I test the connection with a real Z280 system (CPU280 by Reh Design).
(This feature can not be used on a Raspberry Pi.)

* There are also Windows binaries which I have produced.

* I complete the documentation

You find the new release at
--> http://yaze-ag.de/
it's a redirect to the original web page
--> http://www.mathematik.uni-ulm.de/users/ag/yaze-ag/

An another way to find YAZE-AG is over google:
search for "Z80 emulator"
mostly it's the first or the second link in the result

For installing YAZE-AG on a Raspberry Pi read INSTALL
in the section "Documentation" on the web page.

The development continues ...

What is YAZE-AG?
===============
Yet Another Z80 Emulator by AG is a Z80-CPU-Emulator. Inside the Emulator
runs an original CP/M 3.1 (I use the BDOS3 replacement ZPM3N10 of Simeon
Cran) or the CP/M 2.2 replacement Superdos.

yaze-ag is designed to provide an exact simulation of the Z80 microprozessor
on a UNIX / Linux / FreeBSD / MacOS-X / Windows (Cygwin environment) and
Raspberry Pi system.
It is fast, emulates undocumented opcodes, and passes instruction
regression tests against real Z80 hardware.

NEW in yaze-ag-2.xx is the support of an emulated Memory Management Unit
(MMU) and the BIOS which supports CP/M 3.1 (or ZPM3 which is used in yaze-ag).

Best Regards
Andreas

So I am using a raspberry pi as a project for uni this year, my original idea was to make an avoidance robot, but Iam now starting to second guess my self, I am a complete noob with raspberry pi and to be honest I have no idea were to even start, will this project be beyond me?.

If so what else is a good project for a noob to start with.

Many thanks.

It does rather depend on what you are trying to avoid. Also your level of Noob with regard to other areas.

It's worth noting that the Pi has Linux at it's core so inherits all of the abillities of C & C++ It's also joined at the hip with Python you need to consider what are you using for sensors.

If you think about it you can build a basic avoidance robot with lego mindstorms. ;)

My mother of age 93 is as sharp as a tack but is crippled by arthritis. We have looked for simple ebook readers with large buttons without success. The raspberry Pi could be the solution.
My ideal setup would be: bring books to her on a thumb drive. Hook up a big monitor to the hdmi,
Have one big button that would put the text on the screen. Continuing from the last session and going on to the next book. I'm looking into doing this myself, but I've a lot to learn and would appreciate some help and guidance (or a completed solution)
Thanks
