How interesting it would be if you can use your hobby computer to make anything that you wish to!! Electronics and coding enthusiasts all over the world are very well aware of this potential regarding Raspberry Pi, the good ol’ pocket sized wonder. We have seen some immensely wonderful hacks and gadgets based on it. This blog is the same where Jeremy Blythe explores one of the n dimensions which Raspberry Pi can do.
Now, let us mind you that he hasn’t done anything extraordinary like creating a quad-copter or dynamic GPS system. This is Raspberry Pi based parking assisting system which has a distance sensor interfaced with it. Simple,eh, no? Definitely not!! This project has a pretty long python coding. The project uses a Microsoft Camera, Adafruit 2.2 inches LCD display and a Sharp distance sensor. Jinxing with the hardware can be possible of course; keeping in mind the coding doesn’t get disturbed.
All the new generation of smart cars are getting some parking assistant installed, this can be a new prototype especially for those who want their car to have something interesting piece of their creativity.
When such applications float around, hobby computing get beyond the horizon of “hobby” and with people like Jeremy Blythe coming around to do wonders by toiling their brains with python coding, it certainly becomes more of an engineering marvel.
Creating a huge inspiration for budding coding enthusiasts and electronic project, Mr. Blythe gets all our wishes and luck (although he rules the luck thing :D) to do bigger and better.Catch this video and learn to serve!!
