Sensor Twitter Feed

Sensor Twitter Feed

In this project we use the GrovePi with the Grove LED, DHT, light and sound sensor and tweet the value live to the internet. You can use this example to make a live Sensor Twitter Feed powered by the Raspberry Pi and the GrovePi.

This is a simple example to demonstrate how to use multiple Grove Sensors with GrovePi in your Projects. All the parts used in this project are available in the GrovePi Starter Kit.

Sensor twitter feed example

Running the Program

In the Raspberry Pi terminal, change directory to GrovePi/Projects/Sensor Twitter Feed:

cd /GrovePi/Projects/Sensor_Twitter_Feed/

In the directory, Run the wifi_twit.py in example python program in root (sudo):
