Raspberry Pi self racing car workshop – Saturday 27 May

0

Mikkel and I think it can be lots of phun to do a self driving car workshop on 27 May.

This is an early preview course and will allow us to develop and refine the workshop – so at this stage we are limiting participation to House4Hack members and their kids!

The course shows how to integrate a number of technologies (CAD, 3D printing, Linux, Python, Electronics (servo control), Deep Learning) to deliver a self-driving car. Three standard radio controlled cars as per the picture are available during the course.

The workshop contents as follows:

  • a. Introduction
  • b. Building the frame
  • c. Configure the pi
  • d. Assemble the car
  • e. Manually driving the car
  • f. Self car racing
  • g. More beer (BYOB)
 

Thanks for the support – the workshop is fully booked

To participate you will need a Raspberry Pi 3 and RPi Camera – if you don’t have a RPi camera,  let me know and we can order from PiShop.

For this intro workshop we will be charging R600 in future, which includes a kit containing a Pi to RC car interface card (PCA9685) and SD card configured with OpenCV, Tensorflow, Python etc. etc.

For the preview edition, the costs is only R300!

  • Where: House4Hack
  • When: 27 May – Saturday
  • Time: 9.00 – 13.00
  • Cost: R300 – if you want a Pi a camera it is R500 extra.
Thanks for the support – the workshop is fully booked

Raspberry Pi Workshop – Saturday 1 October

0

Learn Linux and Raspberry Pi the smart way with this training course under the H4H Maker Academy.

Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer ideal for learning about computing, Linux, interfacing with hardware such as sensors and actuators, as well as programming. It’s cheap, but powerful, and makes it possible to interact with the physical world.

In this course we’ll use the Raspberry Pi to learn Linux as well as some simple programming with Python and some interesting hardware projects.

We’ll conclude the course with setting up a Raspberry Pi as a working FM Transmitter, broadcasting over FM!

This course is fully booked.
