TRANSCRIPT

  • Slide 1
  • Presentation by John Lamb Trainee Master Teacher Monkwearmouth Academy Physical Computing with the Raspberry Pi
  • Slide 2
  • HDMI Composite video Ethernet USB Audio Power GPIO Raspberry Pi Hardware
  • Slide 3
  • Breakout Boards such as the pi cobbler allow you to use breadboard to build projects They are relatively cheap and great for projects but dont protect the GPIO pins
  • Slide 4
  • One of many add-on boards which offer GPIO protection and extra functionality Developed by the University of Manchester with the education sector in mind 8 inputs 8 outputs 2 relays 0V 5V
  • Slide 5
  • Making the Piface classroom friendly
  • Slide 6
  • The final unit safe to work on
  • Slide 7
  • Classroom Friendly Unit
  • Slide 8
  • Traffic lights using scratch
  • Slide 9
  • 7 segment display using Python 1 each
  • Slide 10
  • Interest and enthusiasm
  • Slide 11
  • Sensors dont have to cost much An 8 input capacitive touch sensor can be bought for 1.99. The same technology as Makey Makey but much cheaper
  • Slide 12
  • Using the Data pins These bypass the Piface and go directly to the GPIO pins via a protected circuit This is needed for speed with some sensors as the Piface is too slow. Low cost sensors/motors e.g. Temperature Humidity Pressure Distance(Ultra sound) Servo/Stepper motors for robotics
  • Slide 13
  • Maplin Robotic Arm 30 each (watch out for offers every so often) Programmable with Scratch & Python thanks to an open source module called PYusb http://sourceforge.net/projects/pyusb/ Robotics http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/17770365/
  • Slide 14
  • Use the Python API to write code to control the world. The same script can switch on LEDs or other OUTPUTS. INPUT switches can be used as control
