Perl and Raspberry Pi

Timm Murray will show you how to get started writing Perl apps for Raspberry Pi. He's built a rover using Raspberry Pi and Perl, which controls an Arduino for motor controls.

    Pi and Arduino in combination, wow -- and here we thought they would try to eat each other in the wild.

    Interesting project,
    I wish I was in your city to see this. I have my own dormant project to build a quadrotor using Raspberry PI and Perl. I used the tiny PCA9685 chip coupled with Pi for controlling the brushless motors instead of using the Arduino to save space(and weight). I use the I2C bus pins to talk to the peripherals like Servo controller, gyroscope, accelerometer, compass, altimeter etc.

    Following are the modules I wrote(now on CPAN) for this project:
    Device::SMBus
    Device::PCA9685 (Servo/Brushless motor speed controller)
    Device::LSM303DLHC(compass)
    Device::LPS331AP(altimeter)
    DEvice::L3GD20(gyroscope and accelerometer)

    you can look up more information on this at cpan.org if you wish :)
