Abstract

Arduino and Raspberry Pi in a Laboratory Setting

Dustin Johnston (Presentor), Jonny Price,

Department of Physics, Utah State University, Logan, Utah

The purpose of this research project was to study the use of Arduino and Raspberry Pi’s and investigate the practicality of integrating them into the intermediate and advance laboratory classes. After purchasing different types of sensors to use with Arduino and Raspberry Pi, the sensors were characterized. The types of sensors that were characterized were accelerometer, altimeter, barometric pressure, gyroscopic, humidity, magnetic, temperature, and vibrational sensors. Using this analysis, the existing labs can be upgraded and their manuals can be updated and improved to use these sensors where appropriate. This will allow students to learn valuable programming and circuitry skills while using them to advance their knowledge of different physics concepts.
