Raspberry pi 0w¶
This version in under build (05/2018) and clearly not finalized. But this wiki will be used to capitalize the work done for sharing in full opensource mind and way to work/live.
The objective of this version is to use a really known component : the raspberry Pi. We will focus only in one version the pi zero w
More details about this version can be find here : https://www.raspberrypi.org/magpi/pi-zero-w/
The usage of this version is quite interesting for many reasons :
- The size, really tiny.
- Wifi and Bluetooth already included
- Linux distro installation really easy and well described on many website. Nothing new here.
- The electric consumption of the compute/memory/storage is around 120ma and can be reduce if we remove Hdmi later on (once installation done). This mean that for a all day long we will consume around 3A that can be managed by a classic bicycle battery 12v 7a/H + tiny solar panel. ( to be proof by real life tests)
Steps to be done currently :
- Install Operating system on raspberry pi 0w
- Make the probes (for the moment, temperature, hydro, presure based on BME280) and link to rasp (hw side)
- link probes to Rasp (software side)
- automate data consolidation
In parallel to that, we will store below the scripts made (may be stored at the end in git repo)
