Python Programming with Raspberry Pi Zero

Key FeaturesThis is the first book on the market that teaches Python programming with Raspberry Pi ZeroDevelop exciting applications such as a mobile robot and home automation controller using PythonThis step-by-step guide helps you make the most out of Raspberry Pi Zero using Python programmingBook DescriptionRaspberry Pi Zero is a super-small and super-affordable product from Raspberry Pi which is packed with a plethora of features and has grabbed the eyes of programmers especially Python.This book will be your step-by-step guide for developing practical applications in Python using a Raspberry Pi Zero. It would be a valuable resource to learn the essential details of interfacing sensors, actuators to a Raspberry Pi as well as displaying data and data acquisition. You will get started with writing a Python program that blinks an LED at 1-second intervals. Then you will learn to write simple logic to execute tasks based upon sensor data (for e.g. control a motor) and retrieve data from the web (e.g. check emails to provide a visual alert). At the end of this book, you will learn to build a home automation system with Python where different appliances are controlled using the Raspberry Pi.The examples discussed in each chapter of this book culminate in a project at the end of this book that help improve quality of lives.What you will learnConfigure Raspberry Pi using Python Programming languageControl loops to blink an LED using simple arithmetic operationsUnderstand the working of interface sensors, actuators and LED displaysGet to grips with every aspect of Python programming using a practical exampleExplore machine vision, data visualization, and scientific computationsBuild a mobile robot using the Raspberry Pi as the controllerBuild a voice activated home automation controller
