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.
The e-Health Sensor Shield V2.0 allows Arduino and Raspberry Pi users to perform biometric and medical applications where body monitoring is needed by using 10 different sensors: pulse, oxygen in blood (SPO2), airflow (breathing), body temperature, electrocardiogram (ECG), glucometer, galvanic skin response (GSR - sweating), blood pressure (sphygmomanometer), patient position (accelerometer) and muscle/eletromyography sensor (EMG).
Geolocation Tracker (GPRS + GPS) integrates the SIM908 module which counts with both GPRS and GPS technologies what allows to easily perform realtime tracking applications. The idea is simple: read the GPS coordinates (longitude and latitude) and send them by using a HTTP request to a web server. Then use a browser to load the PHP webpage which uses Googlemaps to show the location in realtime.
IR Remote is a small shield that allows you to record any infrared command sent by a remote control and resend it from the Internet. It works connected to Arduino and Raspberry Pi, and let us to control any HVAC system including heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and thermostats from the Cloud.
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 Multiprotocol Radio Shield is an interconnection shield for Arduino, Raspberry Pi and Intel Galileo, and was designed to connect two communication modules at the same time. This that means a lot of possibilities and applications can be made using the cooking-hacks modules.
This guide describes all features of the RS-485 module. RS-485 is the most versatile communication standard. The RS-485 module for Arduino, Raspberry Pi and Intel Galileo allows users to perform industrial and domotic applications.
In this tutorial you can find a detailed description of the RS-232 module. The RS-232 standard is still used to connect industrial equipment (such as PLCs), console ports and special purpose equipment.
This tutorial describes all features of the CAN Bus module which has been mainly designed to perform vehicle diagnostics in real time. CAN is a multi-master broadcast serial bus standard for connecting electronic control units (ECUs). This module also allows the interconnection of different devices to work with this communications protocol for applications such as industrial networks, home automation, etc.
In this tutorial you can find a detailed description of the 4-20mA (Current Loop) Board. The 4-20 mA current loop is one of the most robust sensor signaling standard. Current loops are ideal for data transmission because of their inherent insensitivity to electrical noise.
This tutorial describes all features of the Modbus module. Modbus is a serial communications protocol originally published by Schneider Electric in 1979 for use with their programmable logic controllers (PLCs). Modbus can be operated physically on the RS-485 and RS-232 modules.
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.
