Sensors add almost-human sensing capabilities to your projects, taking real-world events and converting them to analogue or digital signals for your microcontroller to read.
You can sense almost anything with the large range of sensors we stock here at the Pi Hut. It’s a great way to learn how to code whilst also making really fun circuits which mimic real world applications.
Beginners usually start with simple temperature sensor or light sensor circuits, then work up to more advanced proximity, gas, pressure, sound and a whole host of other sensors. There are loads to try!
Beginners looking for a helping hand into the world of sensors can make use of the fantastic Raspberry Pi ‘EduKit Sensors’ kit that we’ve put together, with easy step-by-step guides for using the included sensors with a Raspberry Pi.
