- Product ID: 413
- MPN: EF2483095
Rapspberry Pi Sense HAT is a sensor packed add-on to your Raspberry Pi 3, 2, B+ and A+ boards. It mounts right on top of your Raspberry Pi and all you need to do is run your code.
Raspberry Pi Sense HAT has integrated sensors that can measure temperature, humidity, acceleration, pressure and 3D orientation. Also you get an 8x8 LED matrix for displaying data read through all these sensors.
Writing programs for the Sense HAT is very simple with a Python library available to get started quickly and easily. For a truly out of world projects check out the AstroPi website, containing a host of ideas and instructions.
- Connect your Sense HAT to the Raspberry Pi via the 40 GPIO Pins
- Open up a terminal and run the following command: wget -O - http://www.raspberrypi.org/files/astro-pi/astro-pi-install.sh --no-check-certificate | bash
- (This will take approximately 5 minutes to run on the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, and approximately 20 minutes on earlier models of the Raspberry Pi)
- When the install is finished you will need to reboot your Raspberry Pi
