Projekti: Etäohjattava Raspberry Pi 3 Model B + Webcam + SDR-dongle

Harrastustoimenpiteenä oli rakentaa roiskeveden sekä pölyn kestävä(IP67) salkku(mitat: 33x28x12 cm), jonka voi tarvittaessa viedä mihin tahansa ja siihen saa etäkäyttöyhteyden internetin välityksellä. Laitteen toiminnasta: Kun internetyhteys muodostuu 4G-mokkulalla, ohjelma Raspberryssä päivittää IP-osoitteen noip.com -palveluun. Näin ollen käyttäjän ei tarvitse etsiä IP-osoitetta, tarvitsee vain muistaa verkko-osoite. Ulkoinen virransyöttö lataa Varta-akkua joka syöttää virtaa Clash Ohlson akkuun mihin Raspberry on kytketty. Tällä järjestelyllä virransyöttö ei katkea kun virransyöttö aurinkopaneelista katkeaa pilvisellä [...]
