Raspberry Pi Sensors
This Python module is a collection of classes to enable Raspberry PI sensors support. Module also contains core classes to be used for interaction with I2C devices and also 16-bit EEPROM modules.
Supported sensors and measurements:
- Bosch BMP180: temperature (Celsius degrees), pressure (Pa)
- ST VL6180X: distance (mm), ambient light (lux)
See https://github.com/bivab/smbus-cffi/blob/master/README.rst for install instructions.
1. pip install from PyPi
pip install rpisensors
2. pip install from git
pip install git+https://github.com/altosz/rpisensors.git
3. Clone the repository and run setup.py
git clone https://github.com/altosz/rpisensors.git python setup.py install
If you have a sensor connected to Raspberry PI 3 (on I2C bus 1), you may run
python -m rpisensors.bmp180 python -m rpisensors.proximity
The output will show the results of measurement. If you have sensors connected to I2C bus 0, you may test the sensor from python console:
>>> from rpisensors import BMP180 >>> sensor = BMP180(0) >>> print sensor.read_temperature()
To submit a bugreport use the GitHub bugtracker for the project:
You may use I2CDevice class as a base for I2C devices. Or Eeprom16 for devices using 16-bit eeprom.
