LightingPi: Using RaspberryPi with OpenLightingArchitecture to create DMX512 Devices and More

Scott Gibson has created LightingPi, a software library which will allow you to create RaspberryPi-based hardware devices that can be controlled using standard theatrical lighting protocols, such as DMX512. He writes:

As a companion to my pixelPi software and I’ve started work on an output device which works with OLA (Open Lighting Architecture).  This allows the Raspberry Pi to be use to control; servos; dimmers; relays and pixels (via pixelPi) all controlled over standardized lighting/prop control protocols supported by OLA.  This would essentially be a configurable node which drives hardware and can be controlled with Artnet; E1.31; ESP Net; Pathport; Sandnet; Shownet.

The example outlined in his post uses our 16-channel PWM driver board, our RGB LED pixels, and our addressable RGB LED flexi-strip. You could also drive our non-addressable LED strips with the PWM board.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
