** UPDATED JANUARY 31, 2018 **
The latest update includes a whole new section in which you will learn how to build your Raspberry Pi Bench Computer using a low cost relay board instead of the (hard to find) Piface Relay+. You will also learn how to use a GPIO breakout board that makes it very easy to secure wires to your Raspberry Pi
This Raspberry Pi project course will show you how to integrate a variety of components into a gadget that you can use to automate your work bench.
I call it "The Bench Computer".
With the Bench Computer, you will be able to control any device and appliance on your electronics work bench, like turn on and off your bench lights, soldering iron and fume extractor.
The Bench Computer provides a great framework on which you can build your own home automation projects Out of the box, you will be able to control anything with a simple on/off switch, like lights, fans, heaters etc.
I have designed this course to help you get started. What you get the Bench Computer to do is entirely up to you!
Here are the main components (software and hardware) that you will learn about by taking this course:
The Raspberry Pi (version 3 is recommended, but any model with a 40-pin header will do)
The Raspberry Pi 7-inch touchscreen
The Raspberry Pi Camera v2
The Piface Relay+ HAT (contains the small relays used to control 12V devices) OR a Keyestudio 4 Channel Relay board
A GPIO board breakout
Larger external relays used for controlling mains appliances like lights and your soldering iron
Python 3 and the Tkinter framework for building the application
Things that you want to control, like low-power 12V LED strips and fans, and mains appliances like a soldering iron.
Scroll further down for a list of learning objectives for this course.
All code is available on Github, and is free to download and use as you wish.
A list of parts is available in the first section of the course (free to view).
In 9 hours of video content and over 70 lectures, you will learn the necessary skills for interfacing you Raspberry Pi with your workbench.
Who this course is for:
Anyone familiar with the Raspberry Pi looking to expand their skills
Anyone interested in home automation
Anyone looking for a challenging project
