You can use a Raspberry Pi just like a regular computer, but you can also use it to read information from sensors and control hardware. In this workshop, you’ll build a Pi-powered compass, learning how to read data from an electronic compass and how to display information on an OLED screen. Although you’ll be working with a specific sensor and display, you’ll be equipped to figure out how to connect to whatever devices you need for your next project.
If you’re interested in learning how to get this data from here to there, you may want to take a look at our Raspberry Pi — IoT Networking workshop.
