Raspberry Pi hearing it for first time ? its not a fruit or any dishes its a type of Development board just like arduino that we discussed before. According to wikipedia The Raspberry Pi is a series of small single-board computers developed in the United Kingdom by the Raspberry Pi Foundation to promote the teaching of basic computer science in schools and in developing countries.The original model became far more popular than anticipated,selling outside its target market for uses such as robotics. It does not include peripherals (such as keyboards, mice and cases). However, some accessories have been included in several official and unofficial bundles.According to the Raspberry Pi Foundation, over 5 million Raspberry Pis were sold by February 2015, making it the best-selling British computer.By November 2016 they had sold 11 million units, and 12.5m by March 2017, making it the third best-selling “general purpose computer”. In July 2017, sales reached nearly 15 million.In March 2018, sales reached 19 million.
Raspberry pi is used in M3GoBot .The Raspberry Pi may be operated with any generic USB computer keyboard and mouse.It may also be used with USB storage, USB to MIDI converters, and virtually any other device/component with USB capabilities.Other peripherals can be attached through the various pins and connectors on the surface of the Raspberry Pi.None of the current Raspberry Pi models have a built-in real-time clock, so they are unable to keep track of the time of day independently. As a workaround, a program running on the Pi can retrieve the time from a network time server or from user input at boot time, thus knowing the time while powered on. To provide consistency of time for the file system, the Pi does automatically save the time it has on shutdown, and re-installs that time at boot.
There are a number of developers and applications that are leveraging the Raspberry Pi for home automation. These programmers are making an effort to modify the Raspberry Pi into a cost-affordable solution in energy monitoring and power consumption. Because of the relatively low cost of the Raspberry Pi, this has become a popular and economical alternative to the more expensive commercial solutions.
The Raspberry Pi Foundation recommends the use of Raspbian, a Debian-based Linux operating system. Other third-party operating systems available via the official website include Ubuntu MATE, Windows 10 IoT Core, RISC OS and specialised distributions for the Kodimedia centre and classroom management.Many other operating systems can also run on the Raspberry Pi.
Generally, the raspberry pi is designed for the educational purpose and it is in small size like a credit card. It will improve the programming skills & hardware programming at the higher education in the schools or colleges. The raspberry pi is slower than the laptop or desktop and it is totally in the Linux operating system. The availability of price in the market is low.Different Types of Raspberry Pi Models are following Raspberry Pi 1 model B, Raspberry Pi 1 model A, Raspberry Pi 1 model B+, Raspberry Pi 1model A+, Raspberry Pi Zero, Raspberry Pi 2, Raspberry Pi 3 model B, Raspberry Pi Zero W . The different applications of the raspberry pi model are Media steamer, Tablet computer, Home automation, Internet radio, Controlling robots, Cosmic Computer, Arcade machines, Raspberry pi based projects
