GrovePi Protocol and Adding Custom Sensors
tl;dr- For each operation that you want to do on the GrovePi, the Raspberry Pi sends a command via I2C to the GrovePi and waits for a response for the command from the GrovePi. When it receives the response, it interprets the data and returns the desired output. Explanation in depth We will look into how the working of...July 2, 20130
Python Library Programming in C# GrovePi Protocol & Adding Custom Sensors Networking Multiple GrovePi Together
The GrovePi communicates with the Raspberry Pi using I2C protocol. The Raspberry Pi acts as a Master and GrovePi as slave at address 0x04. The Raspberry Pi sends commands to the GrovePi. The Grove Pi processes the commands and sends back data. The GrovePi can be easily integrated with the other Grove Sensors using Serial, Digital, Analog or I2C...
The GrovePi is stacked on top of the Raspberry Pi without the need for any other connections. Communication between the two occurs over the I2C interface. All Grove modules connect to the universal Grove connectors on the GrovePi shield via the universal 4 pin connector cable. Grove modules, which work on analog and digital signals, connect directly to the...
Welcome to the Quick Start Guide to the GrovePi. If you don’t have the GrovePi, you can purchase it here. If you want to know the advanced technical details about how it was designed and works, you can find all the design files in our Github Repository. 1. Connect the GrovePi to the Raspberry Pi Be sure to remove the...

Setting Up The Software
Below are directions on how to setup your Raspberry Pi software to work with the GrovePi+. If you’re new to the Raspberry Pi, we recommend you use a Dexter Industries SD Card which comes will all software pre-configured for your GrovePi. The first step with your new GrovePi+ is to configure the Raspberry Pi. The GrovePi+ will not work correctly...
