How to code the Sense HAT for Raspberry Pi in your web browser | Opensource.com
The joystick access was previously limited to few library. But now, developers can access sense, stick and assign actions. The emulator has options to simulate temperature conditions as well. This lets you test code in a simulated environment.
This weather station tutorial will show you how to set up the sense HAT software itself and how to retrieve the data from its three primary sensors, those being the temperature, humidity and pressure sensors. We will also briefly touch on how to write text to the LED Matrix as we will use this as a way of displaying your sensor data.
Once your code looks something like the one displayed above, and you are certain you have correctly indented your code you can quit and save, press Ctrl+X and then Y and then press enter.
Like all Raspberry Pi devices, the Sense HAT is cool enough to have developed a huge base of hobbyists who love it but really shines for students learning to code in the classroom. The Sense HAT is one of the best devices for connecting code to the real world by allowing students to see their code read temperature and make LEDs light up with relatively little overhead or boilerplate. Raspberry Pi wanted to build an in-browser emulator to bring this neat tool to as many students as they could around the world. We were excited and honored when they reached out to us about submitting a proposal for the project this past Spring.
The Raspberry Pi Foundation has this week announced the launch of a new Raspberry Pi Sense HAT emulator which has been designed to run natively on your Raspberry Pi desktop rather than within a web browser.
Press F5 to resume the Flask App, then switch back to your web browser and you will see the temperature, humidity, and pressure Sensor data displayed on the web page.
Click on it and follow the instructions to install the UWP application onto your Raspberry Pi. After a few seconds, IoT Dashboard will open your favorite browser and connect to the IoT Core Blockly application running on your Raspberry Pi:
You need to put your Initial State access key on line 6 in place of PUT_YOUR_ACCESS_KEY_HERE (copy the streaming key to your clipboard from 'My Account' and paste it into the code in nano in your terminal).
Go back to your Initial State account in your web browser and look for a new data bucket called Temperature Stream. You should see temperature data streaming in live. Vary the temperature of the sensor by holding it in your hand or putting it in a glass of ice.
Are you tired of staring at that stupid, soulless, bearer of bad news bathroom scale every morning? It is time to create a scale that is not only smart but has a bit more personality to brighten your day. We are going to build our very own hackable, weight tracking, text messaging bathroom scale that comes with a built-in sense of humor. 350c69d7ab
