Raspberry Pi Pico projects

These are projects that make use of the Raspberry Pi Pico or that are based around boards that use the RP2040 which is the Raspberry Pi microcontroller used in the Pico. If you are looking for projects related to the Raspberry Pi single board computer see the Raspberry Pi projects page. If you are interested in Wireless Pico projects then see the Raspberry Pi Pico W (Wireless Networking) projects page.

Raspberry Pi Pico Voltmeter

Raspberry Pi and Raspberry Pi Pico Voltmeter with uart serial communications

Learn how to program the Raspberry Pi Pico using C/C++ and MicroPython.

Includes a voltmeter project which uses C/C++ or MicroPython on the Pico to talk to a Raspberry Pi using serial uart communications. A Python Pygame Zero program on the Raspberry Pi then displays this on a GUI as a 7-segment display.


Arduino RP2040 NeoPixel / RGB LED server

PixelStrip / NeoPixel web server application for the Arduino RP2040, DJ, Disco and parties

Control NeoPixels and WS2811B RGB LEDs using the Arduino Nano RP2040 Connect. This provides a webserver running on the Arduino Nano RP2040 (and the onboard ESP32 based network controller) to allow control from a web browser or smart phone.


LED lineside signal lights

G-Scale LGB train with automatic LED signals

In this project I've created 3D printed lineside signal lights for my G-scale model railway.

The lights can be controlled by a custom ATMEGA328p based circuit (like the Arduino UNO) which can be controlled by a Raspberry Pi. It can also be controlled by a Raspberry Pi Pico using the RP2040 micrcontroller.
