Assistance with new Project

by marinfr on Wed Nov 15, 2017 1:20 pm

I am trying to design a solution and not sure what hardware would be best to start as a platform. My needs are as follows.

The ability to connect to a network and obtain a ip address
The ability to connect a small screen
ability to present either a web page on a company intranet as a Kiosk type display or a digital reading (ie temperture reading)
Be able to refresh the web pag or digital reading.
A small foot print
Ability to boot up easily should power be lost

I was considering the PI platform as a possible answer.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated

thanks for the response, is the PI OS/software simple to program. Is it windows best. What is needed to have it operate as a kiosk with no user input capability

You would need a Pi, a power supply and an HDMI monitor.

Thanks again for the response what I need most help with is the code to allow the Pi to boot to full screen mode without touch screen capability and open up to a preset browser.

Would this be done in raspian or Windows 10 IOT or linux

Would this be simple coding , i am very unfamiliar with coding so i would need helping trying to find this code and how to do it

Looking for Host source code for communicating with a PC USB bluetooth dongle. I want to be able to write my own source code to communicate through the PC dongle bluetooth and send and receive information from the Adafruit Feather nRF52 Bluefruit board.


Also would like the source code for the Bluefruit LE APP?

Sincerely,
John Martinez

John, Please start your own topic and don't intrude on another person's topic unless you have information pertinent to that subject.
