The Raspberry Pi is a miniature wonder, a device that functions marginally larger than a credit card that is popular to engineering managers worldwide. The new version of the Pi also suggests that it may be the title machine, which ultimately introduces the Internet of Things (IoT) into the mainstream.
WHAT IS THE RASPBERRY PI 4 CAPABLE OF?
Astonishing may be the Raspberry Pi 4. For beginners, fans of novice tech use Pi boards as media centers, file servers, classic gaming consoles, routers, and ad-blockers on a network basis. Yet it’s just a preview of the possibilities. There are hundreds of projects out there where people use the Pi to create tablets, computers, cars, robots, smart mirrors, capture images at the edge of space, conduct international space station tests – without including the wackier inventions – anybody?
With the Pi 4 being faster, able to decode 4K video, benefiting from faster storage via USB 3.0, and faster network connections via true Gigabit Ethernet, the door is open to many new uses. It’s also the first Pi that supports two screens at one — up to dual 4K@30 displays — a boon for creatives who want more desktop space.
Raspberry Pi in Industry: Why?
There are many reasons why the Raspberry Pi makes sense to use in a business environment.
The first step is to reduce the cost. The most expensive $55 clock models are available for you, based on the type you require for your application. The fact that the Pi is so low-cost makes it easier for businesses who wish to incorporate new technologies in their workflow to gamble less by beginning a pilot project.
This also applies in manufacturing contexts that can cost thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars for new machinery. Combining Pi and other offshore sensors will make it much easier for an Industrial IoT project to get off the ground, particularly because a $35 unit, versus a $100,000 piece of equipment, is much easier to get a return on your investment.
Examples of Industrial IoT Applications Using Raspberry Pi
1. Smart Energy Monitor Based on IoT
Energy monitors are devices that display how much energy is consumed by a certain unit (or device). You will keep the energy intake under control using this knowledge and if possible make some changes. A sensor for electricity will help you reduce energy waste and help you save the world.
2. Create an IoT-Based Agricultural Solution
We know about technology implementations in homes and workplaces, but in this project, you will create a garden solution (or a farm). Here, we’re going to use Raspberry Pi to create a farm solution. It will automatically monitor the level of moisture in the soil and water. So you want this project particularly if you keep a garden (whatever the scale might have). It helps you to maintain your garden and eradicate much of your troubles.
3. Develop a Face Recognizing Robot with Raspberry Pi
Face recognition is an IA-based technology that identifies a face by processing its characteristics by a computer. In mobile devices, facial recognition has become prevalent, and its use has been used in various locations, such as smartphones and social media. You can do this with Raspberry Pi when you are familiar with the principle and want to apply it in a robot.
Above is just a lonely case of the Raspberry Pi in commercial use, and it is distributed across the Internet for hundreds more. So, this delicious little Pi can be all the motivation you need if your company is about to jump to the top.
