Have you ever thought about a speaker which can be controlled by your voice!!! Yes, Amazon Echo is the one of the most popular voice controlled Speaker, but in competition with it Google Home is also getting popular. Voice assistants becoming more popular as we are heading towards an era of AI based systems. You have heard about Google Assistant, Apple Siri and Amazon Alexa. These all are Voice based AI systems, what makes these different from each other is their ecosystems, and this is where Google Assistant standout the most. Google, Apple and Amazon, all these companies already launched their smart speakers. Google smart speakers are also available in the market. We already covered Raspberry Pi based Amazon Echo, this time we will turn Raspberry Pi into a Google Home Speaker.
“Good morning. It’s 7:00 a.m. The weather in Malibu is 72 degrees with scattered clouds. The surf conditions are fair with waist-to-shoulder high lines. High tide will be at 10:52 a.m”. Every time I hear this voice of Jarvis in the movie Iron Man it sends me chills down my spine. I am sure just like me many would have dreamt of living a life as sophisticated as Tony Stark. But sadly we have not advanced with technology for a miniature Arc reactor or an AI as smart as JARVIS. But it is possible to replace our boring morning alarm clocks with the one that is similar to Jarvis using a Raspberry Pi. At the end of this project, we will create a very basic GUI using which we can set an alarm and when the alarm goes on we will have a voice which tells us the current time and day with some pre-defined text. Sounds cool right!! So let us build one: https://circuitdigest.com/microcontroller-projects/raspberry-pi-based-jarvis-themed-speaking-alarm-clock
Interfacing 3.5 inch Touch Screen TFT LCD with Raspberry Pi
The pi itself has a HDMI output which can be directly connected to a Monitor, but in projects where space is a constrain we need smaller displays. So in this tutorial we will learn how we can interface the popular 3.5 inch Touch Screen TFT LCD screen from waveshare with Raspberry pi. At the end of this tutorial you will have a fully functional LCD display with touch screen on top of your Pi ready to be used for your future projects.
Check out the complete tutorial: https://circuitdigest.com/microcontroller-projects/interfacing-3.5-inch-touchscreen-tft-lcd-with-raspberry-pi
Minecraft is one of the most popular game in the world and people are getting additive for this interesting game. You can setup your own Minecraft server and can create your own worlds in the game. For this, you don’t need to spend money on a dedicated PC, it can be easily done with a small, credit card-sized Linux computer Raspberry Pi. If you want to play it on small LAN network with your family and friends then Raspberry is the perfect choice for you. Graphics of this game is not good but still it looks so fascinating to play this game on network with other people.
Setup your own Miinecraft server on your Pi:
Controlling Arduino with Raspberry Pi using pyFirmata
We use PyFirmata firmware to give commands to Arduino using Raspberry Pi python script. PyFirmata is basically a prebuilt library package of python program which can be installed in Arduino to allow serial communication between a python script on any computer and an Arduino. This python package can give access to read and write any pin on the Arduino. So here we will run python program on Arduino using Raspberry pi.
So in this tutorial we will take advantage of this library and will use this in our Arduino board to control Arduino using Raspberry Pi.
Raspberry Pi DHT11 Temperature and Humidity Monitoring
In this tutorial we are going to learn how to interface the popular DHT11 sensor with Raspberry Pi and display the value of temperature and humidity on a 16×2 LCD screen
Raspberry Pi Twitter Bot
Today’s Tutorial relies heavily on the python library, Twython, which is a python module for interfacing with twitter. With twython, we could do most of the things you normally would want to do on your twitter handle like send DMs, Post tweets, read tweets, read DMs, Upload an image, change DP, Change background image, and a lot more. Twython requires authentication from twitter, which can be received by creating a twitter app.
Today we going to build a Remote Controlled Car using Raspberry Pi 3 and Bluetooth, here we will use Smart Phone as a remote to control the car.
Here we are using Raspberry Pi 3 which have inbuilt Bluetooth, so we don’t need to use any external USB Bluetooth dongle. Here we are using RFCOMM Bluetooth protocol for wireless communication.
Fingerprint Sensor Interfacing with Raspberry Pi
Using this Raspberry Pi Fingerprint System, we can enroll new finger prints in the system and can delete the already fed fingerprints.
