Raspberry Pi Digital Spirit Level #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
In this post we show how to create a Digital Spirit Level using a Raspberry Pi and python.
The code moves that bubbles on the display in relation to the angle read from the IMU.
Parts used in this project; Raspberry Pi 3
Any IMU or TFT can be used, however the code would need to be updated to accommodate the different devices. It is best to use a 480×320 TFT as the images are scaled to fit this resolution.
This guide assumes that some basic understanding of an IMU(Accelerometer and Gyroscope) is already known. And you have one already working with your Raspberry Pi.
If you don’t, we do have some
guides which covers this.
