To start things off, I'd recommend you go through the basics first. Much of the hardware and testing parts have been covered in the post below Mr. Frederick Vandenbosch. I'll be tackling the basic scheme of things to get started with the robot using the Pi. Rapiro: Putting it together and getting it to work Note: Almost all of this information can be found around the net individually, but I decided to compile them here for accessibility and ease of use for everyone who's starting ...
In my recent blog http://www.element14.com/community/community/raspberry-pi/raspberrypi_projects/blog/2014/02/24/raspberry-pi-as-a-lamp-server I described how I went about setting up my Pi as a LAMP server. like most people, once I had got this working, I needed to work out something useful to do with it! here at work we have a couple of servers that we use for developing/testing web code, and these come up and down during the day as new builds are deployed, etc. Its sometimes a pain when they a ...
This blog is the second installment of a review of the Ultimate Raspberry Pi Bundle provided by element14. I have been waiting for parts and struggling a bit with getting everything working, but finally all electronics are kluged together and functional. Also all software for a working project is written and working. System Diagram This illustration shows the components of the SofballCam and how they are connected. The two main functions of the SoftballCam video recording and cam ...
Well, I've finished my main project for The Ultimate Raspberry Pi Bundle Road Trip, you can read about that here: The Complete Channel One Temperature Monitor and Alarm Project - The Ultimate Raspberry Pi Bundle But, that doesn't mean I'm done Road Trippin, I still have a few more wonderful gadgets to test out.... In this post I'm go to explain how I used the Raspberry Pi, the PiFace Digital and the Raspberry Pi Camera to create a gadget that will catch sneaky people who try to peek in ...
I've been blogging about my experience in Road Test reviewing the Ultimate Raspberry Pi Bundle. As a part of this Road Test I'm creating a Fridge/Freezer Temperature Alarm system for our local food shelf, Channel 1. You can see where this Road Test started for me here In this post I'll bring together all the steps required to build your own Raspberry Pi powered temperature monitor project.
Steps to build this project :

I've finally been able to spend some time on the Pi Alarm project this weekend, so here's a progress update! ...
I decided my previous posts just would not cut it. So here we go, a full documentation of "Building the Beast". The plan of action is to build a MAME and XBMC solution with a monitoring system using the Raspberry Pi camera. The Pi Camera will have a web interface to view the images, and if that is not possible then we will be setting up a VNC server. In this post we will focus on Occidentalis, the educational distro for the Raspberry Pi. First a bit of a background on Occidentalis: ...
