Raspberry Pi IoT Boards
Raspberry Pi is a brand of single-board computers (SBCs) developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation, a UK-based charity. Raspberry Pi boards are widely used in IoT (Internet of Things) applications due to their small size, low power consumption, and versatility. They are equipped with GPIO (General Purpose Input/Output) pins, making them suitable for interfacing with various sensors and actuators. The boards run on a variety of operating systems, including Raspbian (a Debian-based OS), making them flexible for a range of applications.
Major Applications of Raspberry Pi IoT Boards
Home Automation. Raspberry Pi boards are commonly used to create DIY smart home systems, controlling lights, thermostats, and security cameras.
Industrial IoT (IIoT). In industrial settings, Raspberry Pi boards can monitor and control machinery, collect data for predictive maintenance, and optimize manufacturing processes.
Environmental Monitoring. The devices are employed for collecting and analyzing data in environmental monitoring applications, such as weather stations and pollution tracking.
Education. Raspberry Pi boards are extensively used in educational institutions to teach programming, electronics, and computer science.
