Getting started with any IoT project can be a little daunting. Whether you are a beginner or and experienced embedded systems developer, there are always little parts of any project that could and should go smoother. This talk will focus on setting up the Raspberry Pi as a headless mobile device, configuring the digital IO pins on the Pi, taking analog signals, and then transmitting the data through LoRa, a Longe Range low power wireless protocol to a server on the net or in the cloud.

Dr. Jasper has been interested in real-time data acquisition and control since his undergraduate days when he measured the variation the earth’s gravity due to the tides. Although he has worked in the aerospace industry designing spacecraft altitude and control systems, he currently designs data acquisition and control systems for textile processes. His research interests include measurement and control of dyeing, plasma textiles for nanoparticle filtration, and writing Linux device drivers which can be found at In 2014 he was the recipient of a Fulbright grant in engineering education to promote study abroad for undergraduate textile engineers.
