Check out this awesome new Pi blinky-control project from Scott Gibson of The Great Geekery:
As a companion to my pixelPi software and I’ve started work on an output device which works with OLA (Open Lighting Architecture). This allows the Raspberry Pi to be use to control; servos; dimmers; relays and pixels (via pixelPi) all controlled over standardized lighting/prop control protocols supported by OLA. This would essentially be a configurable node which drives hardware and can be controlled with Artnet; E1.31; ESP Net; Pathport; Sandnet; Shownet.
Grab the latest version here: https://github.com/scottjgibson/lightingPi
- Control strings of LED pixels with a raspberry Pi
- Control strings of analog RGB LED strings (up to 16 channels per PWM board)
- Control Incandessent lighting via SSR boards (work in progress)
- Control servo position
- Control of all fixtures provided over all major lighting
- protocols Artnet / E1.31/ OSC …via OLA
Featured Adafruit Product!
Adafruit 16-Channel 12-bit PWM/Servo Driver – I2C interface – PCA9685: You want to make a cool robot, maybe a hexapod walker, or maybe just a piece of art with a lot of moving parts. Or maybe you want to drive a lot of LEDs with precise PWM output. Then you realize that your microcontroller has a limited number of PWM outputs! What now? You could give up OR you could just get this handy PWM and Servo driver breakout. (read more)
