After the article on the remote controlled camera, we were asked if the Yoctopuce modules could be used to take pictures of scenes notoriously difficult to capture, such as a bursting balloon. We had to respond to the challenge!
We regularly present you with more or less original ideas on how to use our products. The subject of the posts depends on the inspiration of the week or on issues submitted to us. Usually, our examples are oriented towards home automation or industry applications. For a bit of fresh air, here are a few very different examples, created and made public directly by our customers.
Measuring devices which you can directly connect to the network are usually very expensive, more than 1'000 Euros. However, numerous applications, such as monitoring an experiment started on a napkin, could benefit from them if they were more affordable. We are going to show you therefore how to very easily transform a Raspberry Pi into a very flexible Ethernet multimeter, with the help of a simple Python script. A simple solution based on standard USB modules, demonstrated in a video.
