Best IEEE projects on Raspberry Pi


The Raspberry Pi is a small-card sized computer that has all the features of the traditional computers we use. Back in 2008, a group of academics and technicians headed by Eden Upton formed the raspberry pi foundation. Their motto was to promote computer studies. Though raspberry pi was originally built to spread basic coding awareness among children, to do that they invented this cheap, pocket-friendly mini-computer. The techies from the commercial industry soon found the potential of this mini-computer and now it became one of the most popular technologies in the world. A Better way to get skilled in Raspberry Pi is by building hands-on projects.

Is Raspberry pi better than Arduino?

Arduino is an open-source platform based on software and hardware. It is very simple and easy to use. To load a new program to the board, Arduino does not require any extra kind of hardware or programmer. It has ready-made software named Arduino Integrated Development Environment or Arduino IDE which is used for writing and uploading the computer program codes to the physical board.

Raspberry Pi and Arduino both were originally developed for educational purpose and inspired people to learn about the computer system. Both are cheap in cost, small and easy to use but has some major differences. Some of the differences are discussed below:

  1. Arduino is a microcontroller-based physical computing platform that can run only one program at a time while Raspberry Pi is a microprocessor-based single-board computer (SBC) that can perform multitasking. 
  2. Arduino is very popular in the embedded world but raspberry pi also can be used as an embedded system. Dedicated Operating System, camera, LCD, USB, Ethernet/wifi, Bluetooth, memory, speed, etc. make the Raspberry pi better for more advance in the embedded world and It is very much popular in the intelligent systems sector as well.
  3. When a user requires to perform fully-fledged functions like acute calculations, to control a complicated robot, multitask, etc. then Raspberry pi is the best choice while Arduino is good for simple and monotonous tasks.

To conclude, it is not fair to declare a winner here, depending upon the requirements, somewhere Arduino suits them best and somewhere else Raspberry Pi. For instance, Raspberry Pi is good with multitasking like controlling a robot, on the other hand, Arduino is more suitable for monotonous and repetitive tasks.

Applications of Raspberry Pi

Applications of Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi is one of the most popular technology in the world. Some of the features of Raspberry Pi which makes it an effective platform to build IEEE projects are:

  • A 1.4GHz 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU
  • Dual-band 802.11ac wireless LAN and Bluetooth 4.2
  • Faster Ethernet (Gigabit Ethernet over USB 2.0)
  • Power-over-Ethernet support
  • Low-power consumption level
  • Improved PXE network and USB mass-storage booting

Raspberry Pi 4 model B is the latest version which is readily available in the market for anyone to buy and use.

Below are some of the applications that can be done using Raspberry Pi:

  1. You can replace your desktop PC with a Raspberry pi
  2. Photographing the Night Sky
  3. You can set up a web server using Raspberry Pi
  4. Build a Motion Capture Security System
  5. A Home Automation System

In short, you can do almost every function that you do on a traditional computer in Raspberry Pi, you just need some bit of logical thinking along with computer programming knowledge.

Best IEEE Projects using Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi has a great deal of potential to explore. If you are planning to make an IEEE project on Raspberry Pi through which you can improve your skills and open a gateway to a great career, We’ve tried to venture some interesting project topics below:

1. Smart weather monitoring system:


The main purpose of this Raspberry Pi IEEE project is to engineer an electronic device that detects any temperature/humidity difference in the surrounding environment with the help of Digital Humidity and Temperature sensor (DHT Sensor). Raspberry Pi will function as an MCU (micro-controller unit) that extracts data from the DHT sensor and process the same. Then, it sends the data to cloud storage where the stored data is analysed, and Wi-Fi is used to transfer the data. Any user across the globe can access the stored data from the cloud. One can also program Raspberry Pi in such a way that it can execute some actions depending on the received temperature reading. 

For instance, one can program the system to switch ON/OFF a room heater whenever the temperature becomes too low or too high. Raspberry Pi is a credit card-sized, pocket-friendly platform which has a lot of potentials. But Raspberry Pi is quite a complex platform so learning only about the architecture of Raspberry Pi will not be enough. Once you have engineered a couple of projects based on Raspberry Pi, you’ll be comfortable enough with this amazing hardware platform.

2. Surveillance Robot:


Surveillance is the procedure to observe a situation, a person or an area. Generally, it takes place in military operations where there’s a need to constantly observe the activities near borderlines or enemy territory. Currently, it is attained by positioning military personnel near the sensitive regions who constantly monitor all the activities. There are also added threat of losing valuable personnel in the unfortunate event of getting caught by the enemy. With the evolution of technology, now it is possible to remotely monitor a situation, an area or a person by using robots. 

In this Raspberry Pi IEEE project, you will develop a surveillance robot using Raspberry Pi and Python programming language. Raspberry Pi is used as MCU (micro-controller unit) and also to air live video footage over the internet. The robot is programmed in such a way that it’ll be able to get command from a user at a remote location and perform accordingly.

3. Surveillance camera:


The function of the surveillance camera is to receive, store, transmit, progress or check the images or the information. They are often linked to a recording device or Internet Protocol (IP) network. Unlike traditional television broadcasting, surveillance camera sends a closed signal to the receiving monitor and allows to view by the connected gadget only.

In this Raspberry Pi IEEE project, you will use Raspberry Pi as the brain of the system. With the help of programming language, Raspberry Pi is programmed in such a way that it can able to capture a video and air it over the internet as live video footage. As part of this project you will learn about image processing and its algorithms, splitting image channels, Matplotlib, Raspberry Pi and its architecture, and Python programming language.

4. Raspberry Pi Robot


Robot building is one of the best ways to learn lots of new skills. For monitoring and video surveillance we can use robot development. With the help of Raspberry Pi (the credit card-sized mini-computer), we can carry out all the functionalities as that of a traditional computer and modify robots to perform various functionalities. Raspberry Pi builds a remote connection via wifi and Bluetooth and sends the data for monitoring in the cloud section. Raspberry Pi can make complicated robotics projects too.

In this Raspberry Pi IEEE project, you will learn about robot’s locomotion, working of DC motors & motor driver circuit, Raspberry Pi Architecture and its programming, etc. Raspberry Pi offers a lot of flexibility to the user to build robotic projects.
