PiGI Module Released @ Apollo-NG Mobile Hackerspace #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Pigi on raspberry pi longterm bench test

PiGI Module Released @ Apollo-NG Mobile Hackerspace:

Thanks to Maximilian Batz from http://www.pi3g.com/, who sponsored two Raspberry Pi B models for the cause of Apollo-NG, it was time to see what more could be done with them. This essentially forked two subprojects:

  • Raspberry Pi based autonomous Antenna Tracker (following a MAVLink enabled UAV/Drone)
  • Raspberry Pi based geiger-counter

The Tracker is working but still in alpha state (built as a mockup) and not released yet but after a combined amount of 10 days the PiGI – Raspberry Pi Geiger-Müller Interface was finished, including the prototype boards. Some basic documentation is done, the github repo is online and basic prove-of-concept code is finished. It goes to show how amazingly fast we can dive into new technologies today and come up with a new thing without having any prior knowledge how to build a geiger counter. Sharing knowledge via Internet simply rules 🙂

The fun thing about this project was that it also served as a test to determine if the lab, tools and equipment carried by Apollo-NG would be sufficient to build it. During the development and building, no technologies could be used to make it. Only tools/resources that are available and run on a 12V power rail (including soldering)….
