Fast forward 6 months and I’ve just deployed a Tensorflow application to my chicken coop. It’s sort of an over-engineered attempt to detect blue jays in my nesting box and chase them away before they break my eggs. The app detects movement in the nesting box with a camera attached to a Raspberry Pi, then identifies the moving creature using an image classification model implemented in Tensorflow and posts that result to @TensorChicken’s on Twitter.
The fact that I’m using Tensorflow on a Raspberry Pi is laughable because it’s so often associated with applications that perform collosally large computations across hundreds of servers. But Tensorflow is flexible and it can be used at scale, or not.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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.
