Python Programming with Raspberry Pi Zero

Key Features

  • This is the first book on the market that teaches Python programming with Raspberry Pi Zero
  • Develop exciting applications such as a mobile robot and home automation controller using Python
  • This step-by-step guide helps you make the most out of Raspberry Pi Zero using Python programming

Book Description

Raspberry Pi Zero is a super-small and super-affordable product from Raspberry Pi that is packed with a plethora of features and has grabbed the notice of programmers, especially those who use Python.

This step-by-step guide will get you developing practical applications in Python using a Raspberry Pi Zero. It will become a valuable resource as you learn the essential details of interfacing sensors and actuators to a Raspberry Pi, as well as acquiring and displaying data.

You will get started by writing a Python program that blinks an LED at 1-second intervals. Then you will learn to write simple logic to execute tasks based upon sensor data (for example, to control a motor) and retrieve data from the web (such as to check e-mails to provide a visual alert). Finally, you will learn to build a home automation system with Python where different appliances are controlled using the Raspberry Pi.

The examples discussed in each chapter of this book culminate in a project that help improve the quality of people’s lives.

What you will learn

  • Configure Raspberry Pi using Python Programming language
  • Control loops to blink an LED using simple arithmetic operations
  • Understand the working of interface sensors, actuators and LED displays
  • Get to grips with every aspect of Python programming using a practical example
  • Explore machine vision, data visualization, and scientific computations
  • Build a mobile robot using the Raspberry Pi as the controller
  • Build a voice activated home automation controller
