New Farnell educational solution kits help you to get started and offer the best projects to try with the Raspberry Pi computer.
Raspberry Pi projects come with full tutorials with instructions, code and schematics to give you a complete understanding of the project for beginners and experts who are new to the technology.
Here are some great projects that will help you to get started and get going with your next innovation.
Home automation with Raspberry Pi
This project helps you to learn how to convert your home into a smart home. Simply with your voice command you'll be able to control your home devices such as lights, TVs, kettle, blinds etc. The solution uses Alexa enabled device like Amazon devices or your mobile phone, used for natural language processing (NLP), and the Raspberry Pi 4 computer - just ask “Alexa” to turn ON/OFF any home appliances. The Raspberry Pi running Node-RED acts as a bridge between Alexa device and the home appliances enables you to control device with your voice.
This project is ideal for enthusiasts and hobbyists interested in Machine Learning applications on a Raspberry Pi Computer running Raspbian operating system, developed to utilise Raspberry Pi computational efficiency and strong focus on real-time applications. You'll learn the technology behind facial recognition, how to detect faces in a captured image, identify key facial features, and get the contours of detected faces. Learn how to create a data-set, train the algorithm for new faces, how they are stored and used for facial recognition. Same principles can be used for your future projects.
