Using more accurate temperature sensor with my Raspberry Pi

When I stumbled upon the MCP9808 precision temperature sensor, I was sold based upon its promise of up to 0.25 degrees Celsius accuracy. Just like my Freescale Xtrinsic sensor board, there’s a Python library that that allows me to use the MC9808 temperature sensor with my Raspbbery Pi. My one and only challenge was doing […]

Installing Windows Developer Program for IoT image on Intel Galileo Gen 2

In order to setup and install the Windows image onto Intel Galileo Gen 2, the best way is to follow the setup instructions in the Windows Developer Program for IoT. Please be very careful with the folder where you will save the .cmd and .wim file. The best is to store the downloaded files in […]

How to send sensor data from Raspberry Pi to Azure Event Hub using a Python script

This post follows what I intended to do which is to pump sensor data consisting of temperature and altitude readings from the Xtrinsic sensor board to my Azure Event Hub named getfityall. The sensor board comes with some Python scripts already as you have seen in my earlier posts. Coupled with Microsoft Azure Python packages from the SDK, […]

Fresh raspberry pi at my service

I am super glad that the items I ordered from Element14 arrived overnight. I got not one but 3 MEMS Sensor board, and it is working well. Proof that I somewhat “overused” the previous board so much so that the temperature and altitude reading stopped working. pi@raspberryclay ~/rpi_sensor_board $ sudo python mpl3115a2.py MPL3115: Alt. 100.24 Temp: […]

Radio silence

When I started this blog, I wanted to write regularly with at least a blog post per month, but October has been a really quiet month from me. The reason for the radio silence is that I moved between suburbs in Sydney. I also moved between continents, between Malaysia and Australia. I have also re-joined […]

Sending sensor board data from Raspberry Pi to Intelligent Systems Service (ISS)

I have been mucking around with the Xtrinsic-sense board which is an add-on to my Raspberry Pi. In my previous post, I had executed the Python scripts that came with the sensor library that I cloned out of this github. There is a good article that explains about how to enable Xtrinsic-sense board in Raspbian. However […]

How to get Raspberry Pi to work with TP-Link TL-WN721N USB Wi-Fi adapter

Wow! It’s taken me over a week to find just the right combo of advice from a number of really helpful blogs to help me setup raspberryfai with mt TP-Link TL-WN721N USB WiFi adapter. I tried so many different steps that I couldn’t remember what I’d done. I thought that the wicd-curses utility would work […]

Intelligent Systems (at your) Service

I was really excited that my application for the Microsoft Azure Intelligent Systems Service (ISS) Limited Public Preview (LPP) had been approved (my apologies for all the 3-letter acronyms which I will be repeating all over my posts from now on). What the ISS LPP entitles me are the following: Access to the ISS service which […]
