Build an interactive Raspberry PI access point #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

NewImage

Via MagPi

This article features the PaPiRus, the Pi PoE, and the Raspberry Pi 3 to build a portable access point with a screen. We will be working with the Pi PoE, but everything in this tutorial can be achieved without it, too. This tutorial assumes your version of Raspbian Jessie is up-to-date.

You’ll need

PaPiRus ePaper / eInk Screen HAT

Pi PoE Switch HAT

TP-LINK PoE Injector (optional)

40-pin header

GPIO adapter for RPi-Display B+ – female

PuTTY

Putting everything together

Building this access point is extremely easy. It requires minimal soldering and for the rest, it’s really just a question of stacking together the various components.

The additional header will allow us to install the PaPiRus on top of the Pi PoE, but we did this via the GPIO adapter.

In some cases, your infrastructure will already be able to deliver Power over Ethernet; if not, you’ll need to use a PoE injector like the TP-LINK TL-POE150S.

Connect everything up, making sure that the flat cable for the PaPiRus is connected the right way around.

Once all is connected and ready to use, a long press on the switch of the Pi PoE module will power up the system.

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.
