The aim of this exercise is to show students how to the Raspberry Pi may be used in conjunction with a L293D chip to control the direction of rotation a DC motor, and how the speed of a DC motor may be controlled using Pulse Width Modulation (PWM).

The aim of this exercise is to show students how to program the Raspberry Pi to “measure” the state of one of its GPIO pins as a digital input, how the Raspberry Pi may be used in conjunction with an Analogue to Digital Converter (ADC) to measure an analogue voltage.

In this exercise you will use a digital “1-wire” sensor connected directly to the Raspberry Pi’s GPIO port to measure temperature, and investigate how the measured temperature can be used to control a digital output to simulate a central heating thermostat.

The idea is simple enough. It is a kind of modern day jack-in-a-box. It just sits there tempting the user to switch it “on”. When you do, the lid opens and a mischievous little leaver emerges and switches itself back “off” again. Each time you activate the switch you get a slightly different pattern of behaviour but it just keeps switching itself off, whatever you do.

I have always wanted to build a hand-held game console which I could use to program my own games, and this was the inspiration for my latest project the Arduino Micro LCD Game Console. If you are interested in the Arduino and like to play games, then you might want to create something similar by following the ideas in this blog.
