Using the Sense HAT on a Raspberry Pi with Mathematica 11 #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Via Wolfram Blog

Ever since the partnership between the Raspberry Pi Foundation and Wolfram Research began, people have been excited to discover—and are often surprised by—the power and ease of using the Wolfram Language on a Raspberry Pi. The Wolfram Language’s utility is expanded even more with the addition of the Sense HAT, a module that gives the Raspberry Pi access to an LED array and a collection of environmental and movement sensors. This gives users the ability to read in data from the physical world and display or manipulate it in the Wolfram Language with simple, one-line functions. With the release of Mathematica 11, I’ve been working hard to refine functions that connect to the Sense HAT, allowing Mathematica to communicate directly with the device.

The Sense HAT functionality is built on Wolfram’s Device Driver Framework, so connecting to the device is incredibly simple. To start, use the DeviceOpen function to establish a connection. This will return a DeviceObject, which we will use later to tell Mathematica which device we are wanting to read from or write to.
