Raspberry Pi Sensors

Project description

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:

  1. Bosch BMP180: temperature (Celsius degrees), pressure (Pa)
  2. ST VL6180X: distance (mm), ambient light (lux)

Dependencies

Installation

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

Usage

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()

Bug Reporting

To submit a bugreport use the GitHub bugtracker for the project:

https://github.com/altosz/rpisensors/issues

Development

You may use I2CDevice class as a base for I2C devices. Or Eeprom16 for devices using 16-bit eeprom.
