Mon 10:40am-12:20pm

Seminar Slides Lab materials Youtube Video

We will be doing a walkthrough of the Floral Bonnet; a bonnet for the raspberry-pi zero which was hastily created in time for LCA to have sensors, LEDs, and buttons to play with in this series of seminars.

We will be using the Raspberry-pi Zero WH.

We will be doing our hands-on labs with the Raspberry Pi Zero WH; please bring one if you have one. However for E-ALE LCA 2019 you will have to purchase a Floral Bonnet to participate in the lab portion of the seminars so that you have access to the appropriate sensors and devices to write the drivers.

the Floral Bonnet will be the sensor package we will be using.

You can buy a FLoral Bonnet before hand for $25 USD (which you can pick up in Christchurch), or you can purchase them on the day at the conference for a price of $40 NZD.

The Floral Bonnet has the following capabilities:

  • CP2102 Serial over USB console
  • SPI SSD1306 128x64 OLED screen
  • I2C BME208┬áPressure Temperature Sensor
  • I2C┬áTSL2561 Light Sensor
  • GPIO Push button
  • GPIO/PWM connected tricolor LED
