Project description

pyembedded

Python library to get data from embedded modules like RFID, GPS, GSM, Raspberry Pi

Note that some of the hardware like RFID, GPS, GSM can directly be interfaced with Windows or Linux based machine but some of the modules will require Raspberry Pi or other similar embedded devices.

PyPi: https://pypi.org/project/pyembedded/

Installation:

Package can be installed via pip:

$ pip3 install pyembedded

Verify if it is installed:

$ import pyembedded
$ pyembedded.__version__

RFID Usage:

Run below basic code to get the rfid id

Note: Use port as ‘COM1’, ‘COM2’ etc in case of windows machine. Use port as ‘/dev/ttyUSB0’ in case of linux based devices:

$ from pyembedded.rfid_module.rfid import RFID
$ rfid = RFID(port='COM3', baud_rate=9600)
$ print(rfid.get_id())

GPS Usage:

Run below code to get GPS related data

Note: Use port as ‘COM1’, ‘COM2’ etc in case of windows machine. Use port as ‘/dev/ttyUSB0’ in case of linux based devices:

$ from pyembedded.gps_module.gps import GPS
$ gps = GPS(port='COM3', baud_rate=9600)
$ print(gps.get_lat_long())

Other methods available:

$ get_lat_long()
$ get_time()
$ get_quality_indicator()
$ get_no_of_satellites()
$ get_raw_data()

GSM Usage:

Run below code to interface with GSM SIMCOM module

Note: Use port as ‘COM1’, ‘COM2’ etc in case of windows machine. Use port as ‘/dev/ttyUSB0’ in case of linux based devices:

$ from pyembedded.gsm_module.gsm import GSM
$ import time
$ phone = GSM(port='COM3', baud_rate=9600)
$ if phone.modem_active():
$     phone.make_call(number='9876543210')
$     time.sleep(4)
$     phone.end_ongoing_call()

Other methods available:

$ phone.make_miss_call(number='9876543210', timeout=5)
$ phone.get_international_subscriber_identity()
$ phone.get_modem_serial_number()
$ phone.get_modem_revision_number()
$ phone.get_modem_model_no()
$ phone.get_modem_manufacturer()
$ phone.get_signal_strength()
$ phone.send_sms(number="+14691234567", message="Hello World")
$ phone.read_all_sms()
$ phone.read_sms_by_msg_id(msg_id=3)

Raspberry Pi Usage:

Run below code to get some useful data from Raspberry Pi

NOTE: Some of the below methods can also run on other linux based os:

$ from pyembedded.raspberry_pi_tools.raspberrypi import PI
$ pi = PI()
$ pi.get_ram_info()
$ pi.get_disk_space()
$ pi.get_cpu_usage()
$ pi.get_connected_ip_addr(network='wlan0')
$ pi.get_cpu_temp()
$ pi.get_wifi_status()
