Use your RaspberryPi to power a company dashboard #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Here is company dashboard (showing statistics, uptime of servers, etc) setup by Alex Bain — he reports: “It’s been fully operational for a week now and received lots of positive feedback from other employees.”
Here are five steps to follow if you want to start using a RaspberryPi to power a company dashboard. I’ve just finished putting this together at my office. We’re using Geckoboard for the web interface.
Reboot your RaspberryPi and it should:
Boot directly into X11
Start Chromium in kiosk mode and load up your dashboard
Prevent the screen from going to sleep after 10 minutes
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.
