Custom Microcomputer

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Im really not to sure where to put this so if a mod wants to move me to the correct board thanks!

I have a program idea in mind however I would like to develop (Or at least try to) put it on a micro computer something. Like a heart rate monitor/running speed type ordeal. However where would i start in getting parts or getting it made to my specs i.e The Cpu , sensor io reader, Bluetooth, WiFi etc etc. I'm quite lost at this point on how to exactly where to start. All and any input is greatly appreciated thumb.gif

Ever heard of Raspberry Pi? I think it would be a good place to start.

Custom work would be out of the question as it would be crazy expensive.

Yeah that was what I was thinking lots of money haha. But on the pi do you know if I would be able to add aditonal sensors?

What kind of sensors?

The Raspberry PI has 8 x GPIO, UART, I2C bus, and SPI bus. That gives you most of the common methods for communicating with sensors. I honestly have no idea how you communicate with them, though, since you will have to write a program that does so from Linux. I have some experience twiddling with an Arduino, but writing code that runs on Linux is a completely different beast from the simplified C/C++ of an Arduino sketch.
