This Arduino and Raspberry Pi based venture takes SENSOR information from the Arduino and sends it over an USB to the Raspberry Pi. The information is then shaped into a website page on the Pi. The page is completely adjustable. The author has utilized the Freetronics IR Thermometer Module to supply a data to the Arduino then to the Pi. It’s useful when you need to have the Arduino host site pages that contain sensor information however you don’t have an Ethernet Shield. Simply send it to the Pi to make use of additional computing power.
You will need an RPI with a power supply, an Arduino, USB cable, IR Thermometer from Freetronics and a cable to connect SENSOR to Arduino. Connect the sensor to the Arduino or IRTEMP module to the Arduino. You can get the pin mappings and code from the guide below. Once you’re done with the wiring and update the Raspbian, if you aren’t updated already.
Follow the detailed steps given in the guide and you’l have your web server up and about in a jiffy. Ok, not so quickly but still! Once you’ve setup the server you will need to make changes to the Virtual Host and user permissions.
And if you’ve followed everything properly, this is what you can get!
