On 16 September 2017, I took the “Cherry Pie Brewery” to the first Raspberry Pi Jam in South Africa. It was wonderful to see the how the community has embraced this technology. Some of the stand out projects was a self-driving remote control car and an automated home automation system.
The Cherry Pie scored a third place at the end of the event. I thank Entelect and RS Components for the superb organisation.
Here are some lessons that I learned:
- Revamp the modular design of the system, that is can be easily moved
- Streamline the electrical and wiring design
- Improve the wireless network configuration
- Sharpen the aesthetics of the system
