SOLO Python & Raspberry Pi environment

Motor controller for a computer

Here you can find all the resources to work easily with RASPBERRY PI and SOLO.

About RASPBERRY PI 

It’s clear to all of us the great contribution of Raspberry Pi in making affordable computers for everyone and how these beautiful modules transformed the whole world of low power computing. 

SOLO support the Raspberry Pi, Linux, and Windows users to be able to communicate with SOLO through a library called SoloPy written in Python language to control any types of motors.

 

Python Raspberry Pi Environment 1

Implement Your Own Algorithms

 

Analogue Control 

It is possible to make Raspberry Pi and SOLO working together in a very simple way by using Analogue voltages or PWM pulses to control the basic tasks.

It’s possible to read within our Blog the simplicity and how SOLO works in Analogue Control, using Potentiometers or using other input sources.  

Digital Control 

Using our Digital Protocol we are able to communicate with any Raspery PI board having UART or USB ports, on top of  this communication layer, we have built a simplified Python solution for Raspberry PI users called SoloPy

If you need more sophisticated control with Raspberry PI compared to Analogue Control, you can simply use our SoloPy library, to implement your own Python Projects using vastly available functions that are offered by SOLO in the easiest and most practical way.

Library compatibility with: Windows, Linux, Raspberry Pi, and more!
