‘Raspberry Pi’ (R-Pi) is a credit card size single board programmable computer which is based on Linux OS. It is unique in its built-in programmable I/O port which makes it suitable for variety of applications. It can be used as a low cost computer for developing number of research projects in robotics, computer networking, home automation, patient monitoring, WSN, IOT and M2M communication etc. to name a few.

This Session will introduce, key features of R-Pi hardware and software components, basic configuration of R-Pi and installation of necessary software to begin with. It will also cover basic programming of R-Pi using I/O port along with a quick demonstration on a real time application to felicitate the use of R-Pi in future with ease.
