The e-Health Sensor Shield allows Arduino and Raspberry Pi users to perform biometric and medical applications where body monitoring is needed by using 9 different sensors: pulse, oxygen in blood (SPO2), airflow (breathing), body temperature, electrocardiogram (ECG), glucometer, galvanic skin response (GSR - sweating), blood pressure (sphygmomanometer) and patient position (accelerometer).
The idea behind the Raspberry Pi to Arduino shields connection bridge is to allow to use any of the shields, boards and modules designed for Arduino in Raspberry Pi. It includes also the possibility of connecting digital and analog sensors, using the same pinout of Arduino but with the power and capabilities of Raspberry.
This tutorial describes some features of Bluetooth module PRO for Arduino / Raspberry Pi which has been mainly designed to discover high amount of bluetooth devices in a variable area. Besides that, connection processes between two bluetooth modules are shown.
The board (shield) we are going to use in this tutorial is the GPRS/GSM Quadband Module (SIM900) for Arduino/Raspberry Pi from Cooking hacks.
The GPRS shield is fully compatible with old Arduino USB versions, Duemilanove and Mega.
The main finality of the Radiation Sensor Board for Raspberry Pi is to help people in Japan to measure the levels of radiation in their everyday life after the unfortunate earthquake and tsunami struck Japan in March 2011 and cause the nuclear radiation leakages in Fukushima. We want to give the chance to measure by themselves this levels instead of trusting in the general advises which are being broadcasted. The usage of this sensor board along with the affordable and easy to use Raspberry Pi platform helps people to get radiation values from specific places.
The GPS module for Raspberry Pi is a small electronic circuit that allows to connect to your Raspberry Pi board to get position and altitude, as well as speed, date and time on UTC (Universal Time Coordinated). It uses the standard NMEA protocol (http://www.nmea.org) to transmit the position data via serial port.
The Raspberry Xbee shield allows your Raspberry to communicate wirelessly using Zigbee. This documentation describes the use of the shield with the XBee module.
