Have you ever wanted to keep track of the temperature and humidity of your guitar? If you answered yes, or just want to create your own IoT (Internet of Things) device, this project is for you. Vandyke IT has developed a system which collects key statistics from your guitar and transmits them to a Raspberry Pi receiver. Although the instructions are limited, they are sure to inspire you to create your own IoT device and do provide some useful tips. If you want to find out more check out the following link.
If you are working on a projected that requires interaction between an Arduino and a Raspberry Pi you should check out our PiLeven board.
The PiLeven is an Arduino-compatible board based on the Arduino Uno that fits right on top of a Raspberry Pi using the Raspberry Pi's expansion headers. The PiLeven also has a high-current switchmode power supply, so you can plug in anything from 7V to 18Vdc using the standard 2.1mm jack and even use it to power the Raspberry Pi. The serial communications on the PiLeven are linked through to the Raspberry Pi, so your Pi can upload new sketches straight to the PiLeven or send/receive data and commands.
The PiLeven is fully compatible with standard Arduino shields adding a huge amount of potential functionality to your Raspberry Pi. For more information, tutorials and to order, visit the PiLeven webpage.
