One day it’s a server, the next day it’s a core component of a budget space program. Tomorrow — who knows?
The Raspberry Pi has become something of a phenomenon that has spawned low-cost media centers, portable web servers, and more.
Indeed, who would have thought of its important role in beer production, robot control, or as a core component of Project Glass. style system? If you’re sitting on the fence near the Pi, embarrassed by (irrelevant) comparisons to the Arduino, you’ll be fascinated to learn that the two can run in tandem…
The following Raspberry PI projects can be completed in one weekend.
Oddly enough, it is possible to connect a Raspberry Pi to an Arduino. The main purpose of this is to use the Pi as a web controller for the Arduino.
There are several ways to connect the device. The first is via USB, but it takes up one of the Pi’s valuable USB ports and requires Arduino programming on the Pi. The second, better option is the Pi’s UART port, which can be connected to the Arduino’s serial port (optional boards are also available).
The purpose of all this, as described above, is to use the Raspberry Pi as the receiver of the network commands that will control the Arduino. Such a system can prove to be extremely useful for both amateurs and enthusiasts, and even in the industry.

Raspberry Pi Robo Car
One way to use the combined Pi and Arduino is to control a robot.
In the Dark Pi Rises project, two computers are connected via USB with a USB battery pack and a USB hub, allowing instructions to be sent to the Arduino to control the LEDs and motors of the robot itself—in this case, a remote-controlled car. ,
Naturally, the car will continue to be remote-controlled, in this case with a PS3 controller, but what’s really interesting is that it also has a webcam connected to it with a PS3 peephole, with the IR cut filter removed, allowing you to drive at night and see what he sees!
Raspberry Pi space program
The Raspberry Pi’s compact size and wide range of features make it ideal for building a space program at low altitudes.
