Section 3: Demonstration

This section focuses on using the Raspberry Pi as the basis for an software/electronics project

Do the following and submit to your instructor:

  1. Propose THREE potential projects in which the Raspberry Pi would be more appropriate then a standalone microcontroller (like the Arduino)

Do ONE of the following and submit to your instructor:

  1. Using an operating system and programming language of your choice, produce a piece of software that allows for control of the Pi's IO or file system via the Internet
  2. Using an operating system and programming language of your choice, complete a predetermined project that utilizes the onboard GPIO
  3. Using an operating system and programming language of your choice, construct a unique project that utilizes the onboard GPIO to complete a simple task
  4. Using an operating system and programming language of your choice, interface with and control an external hardware device.
