www.pdf24.org    Send article as PDF   
BerryGPS-IMU v2 Plate has been designed to fit perfectly with the Raspberry Pi Zero. It is also compatible with all other versions Raspberry Pi, including the Pi 3B+.
BerryGPS-IMU v2 uses the M20048 from Antenova, which is a high quality GPS module which is able to track 22 satellites. The BerryGPS-IMU v2 is a GPS module which also includes the sensors that can be found on the BerryIMU v2 Plate.

BerryGPS-IMU v2 is also fitted with a barometric sensor (BMP280) which can be used to calculate altitude. A temperature sensor is also included.

Sensors included are;

  • GPS
  • Accelerometer
  • Gyroscope
  • Magnetometer (Compass)
  • Barometric/Altitude
  • Temperature

  • UART  4800/9600/38400/115200 bps
  • Channels – 210 PRN / 66 Acquisition / 22 Tracking
  • Max update rate 5 Hz
  • Horizontal position accuracy <2.5m CEP
  • Acquisition sensitivity -148dBm
  • Tracking sensitivity -165dBm
  • Hot start <1s
  • Warm start <25s
  • Cold start <35s
  • Orbit prediction

  • SuperCap to help store ephemeris data.


An inertial measurement unit, or IMU, measures and reports on velocity, orientation and gravitational forces, using a combination of an accelerometer, gyroscope and a magnetometer.

Streaming Video with the Raspberry Pi Zero W & Pi Camera

IR-CUT Camera Module

I needed a really tiny yet cheap camera so I thought of the Raspberry Pi Camera module. The Version 2 Camera Module does 8MP with good quality, although a 5MP  IR-Cut Camera better suited my needs.

About the IR-CUT Camera

The IR-CUT Camera works on Normal Mode by default. There are two ways to toggle between Normal Mode and Night-vision Mode.

1. By editing the config.txt file:

and append:

exit with save and restart your Pi then the camera will work on Night-vision Mode.

Run a Program On Your Raspberry Pi At Startup

www.pdf24.org    Send article as PDF   

The method that I usually use to run a program on your Raspberry Pi at startup is to use the file rc.local. In order to have a command or program run when the Pi boots, you can add commands to the rc.local file. This is especially useful if you want to power up your Pi in headless mode (that is without a connected monitor), and have it run a program without configuration or a manual start.

Editing rc.local

On your Pi, edit the file /etc/rc.local using the editor of your choice. You must edit it with root permissions:

Add commands to execute the python program, preferably using absolute referencing of the file location (complete file path are preferred). Be sure to leave the line exit 0 at the end, then save the file and exit. In nano, to exit, type Ctrl-x, and then Y.

Raspberry Pi “Zero”: HDMI Monitors Has NO SIGNAL

Raspberry Pi Zero
www.pdf24.org    Send article as PDF   
When connecting a Raspberry Pi ‘Zero’ for the first time to a TV monitor with HDMI, and receive the message: “No Signal”. I tried it on several inputs and cables with no luck. Other devices work fine with the TV, and the cables so there can not be the problem. Then I tried a computer monitor with HDMI, also with no luck. What is happening?

I’ve investigated the problem for a couple of hours, before finding the solution.

The Raspberry Pi ‘Zero’ outputs a relatively weak HDMI Signal. Some devices may not immediately notice the Raspberry Pi ‘Zero’s HDMI Signal, or may not go through the negotiation process.

Timelapse Photography with Raspberry Pi Zero

www.pdf24.org    Send article as PDF   

This tutorial will guide you through taking photos using a Pi Zero and camera, to make a simple timelapse-capturing device. Use it to make a timelapse of a plant growing with the delay set to a day, or the progress on your building work with hourly photos, or a soldering project with a photo every 5 seconds.

Enable the camera

This tutorial assumes you have already set up your OctoCam as per the instructions. If you’re using a camera and a Pi, make sure the camera is connected.

In the Terminal, type sudo raspi-config and press Enter. This will bring up a menu on the screen. You’ll need to press 5, then choose option 1 to enable the camera, and then choose yes. Once you finish with the menu you should get prompted to reboot. This needs doing!

How to build an AirPlay receiver with Raspberry Pi Zero

The number of things you can do with a Raspberry Pi is astounding. For a little over $35, you can create a networked media server for streaming all your digital movies to your TV or give your existing printer wireless capabilities. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

If you’ve yet to decide on what you want to do with your Raspberry Pi, this project shows you how to turn it into a Chromecast Audio-like music streamer. This means you could set up several Raspberry Pis this way, connect each one to a speaker, place them around your house and stream music to each those speakers remotely in a highly configurable way. You can control the music from your phone, tablet or computer.

Setup Raspberry Pi Zero with Headless WiFi

Raspberry Pi Zero

The following instructions will work anytime, you don’t necessarily have to follow them for the first boot – this is just a very convenient way to get your Raspberry Pi onto a network without using any plug-in peripherals like a keyboard, mouse or monitor.

What is “headless,” anyway?

A computer setup without a monitor is said to be running headless. You might want to do this if you’re installing your Pi into some project, or want to keep power-usage and cost minimal. This kind of setup is what the Pi Zero W was built for. The idea is that you can still access your Pi’s terminal interface over your network using a protocol called SSH.

All we need to do is get our Pi set up with the right WiFi credentials and we’ll be able to remotely access it through a terminal program, as if we were using the terminal Pi’s own desktop. What’s more, we’ll get our Pi connected to WiFi without ever having to plug in a monitor, keyboard or mouse to configure it.
