Open Source Ocean Data Buoy with Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

img_7070

Here’s a project that meshes open source, 3D printing, Raspberry Pi, and coding knowhow into one yellow bobbing ocean data gathering device!

The next steps for the wave buoy project involves collecting accelerometer and gyroscope data from the onboard IMU and filtering/processing the data with a laptop to determine orientation and position. The math needed to perform these computations is too much for an arduino alone, so for now I plan to transmit the IMU data to my laptop with an Xbee and let the laptop do all the heavy lifting. Later on, the laptop will be replaced by a Raspberry Pi or other Linux based computer board, but for now it easier for me to develop everything in Matlab and then convert the code to C/C++ or something else in the future. Just personal preference.
