Organizations need to be able to incorporate and deal with the Internet of Things (IoT) as this technolgy becomes pervasive.
This project will introduce Single Board Computers (SBC) in the form of a Raspberry Pi, and sensors and actuators.
A number of exercises will be done to familiarize you with each device.
Then you will experiment with systems made from these components which perform differing functions.
You can work together and help each other on this project, but each student must hand in their own work.
Begin this by completing these exercises to learn to:
Items below are examples of more involved uses of the Raspberry Pi single board computer.
IOT02-Apache2 Webserver on Raspberry Pi
You will install and run Apache2, a webserver.
IOT03. Attach to Partner's Apache2 Webserver
You will work with a partner and use VNC to attach to their webserver on their Raspberry Pi.
IOT08. Create and Configure MagicMirror
You will configure a MagicMirror on a Raspberry Pi.
IOT10. Create IoT Sensor/Actuator System Test
Begin with the Python procedural program xSystemTest.py
Create a more professinal application-using methods, classes, functions and a visual interface using BreezyPython or PySimpleGUI.
Add your own spin.
Work in groups or individually, but each student must hand in the assignment.
Also refer to Project02.
NR01. Create Node-RED Flow
Using Node-RED and investigate creating a Flow that controls sensors and actuators in the Somsen 301 IoT workstations.
Decide which ones to work with, but your final flow must incorporate at least 2 sensors and 2 actuators.
