That’s the test rack.
At home, I have a smaller configuration:
That thing in the old DVD player box is the test fixture I’ve been using (I did not build that!)
What you’re looking at there is:
- a 24 port switch
- a PoE switch
- 5 beaglebones (4 Greens, one Black)
- the black box on pull out table the left is a wireless hub, unrelated.
- a small box on the right on top of the 24 port switch is a VOIP box, also unrelated.
If that was Greek, it means (probably more Greek) that I got a 1 Wire Pi Plus board[^] wired up to a BeagleboneBlack[^] and am talking to the DS2482 1-wire master[^] over the I2C bus[^] and reading the ROM code off of a DS1990 iButton[^] using a DS1402D iButton cable[^].
Using bottle, also implemented a lightweight server to get iButton codes back:
The article is here, on Code Project. It covers install Debian, the various Windows and BBB software, and of course the Python and C# source code for the project.
Got a fun little project working this weekend. I wired up an L3G4200D gyroscope module to a BeagleBoneBlack, wrote the Python code to read the sensor data and send it over using RabbitMQ to a C# app on Windows displaying a 3D box. Now when I rotate the BeagleBoneBlack, the cube mirrors my movements!
Full article will be posted on Code Project in the next week.
