What Is GrovePi+?
GrovePi+ is a system with 15 Grove 4-pin interfaces that brings Grove sensors to the Raspberry Pi. It is the newest version compatible with Raspberry model B/B+ and A+ perfectly.
GrovePi+ is an easy-to-use and modular system for hardware hacking with the Raspberry Pi, no need for soldering or breadboards: plug in your Grove sensors and start programming directly. Grove is an easy to use collection of more than 100 inexpensive plug-and-play modules that sense and control the physical world. By connecting Grove Sensors to the Raspberry Pi, it empowers your Pi in the physical world. With hundreds of sensors to choose from Grove families, the possibilities for interaction are endless.
What Is In This Kit?
Note: Raspberry Pi board is not included
This starter kit comes with 12 sensors and 10 cables to get you up and running with your Raspberry Pi project quickly. Just slip the GrovePi+ board over your Raspberry Pi and connect sensors to the board, you’re ready to start hardware experimenting and prototyping with this powerful platform.
The GrovePi+ is a HAT that is stacked on top of the Raspberry Pi without the need for any other soldering. Communication between the GrovePi+ and Raspberry Pi occurs over the I2C interface. All Grove modules is compatible with the GrovePi+ shield via the universal 4 pin connector cable.
Grove modules which work on analog and digital signals, connect directly to the ATMEGA328 microcontroller on the Grove Pi+. The microcontroller acts as an interpreter between the Raspberry Pi and the Grove sensors. It sends, receives, and executes commands sent by the RaspberryPi.
The GrovePi+ is compatible with Raspberry Pi A+,B,B+/2.
