Gumstix Announces Battery Powered Raspberry Pi Zero
February 13, 2020
The Gumstix Raspberry Pi Zero Battery board enables the Raspberry Pi Zero to stream video over WiFi (using battery power), and overlay real-time inertial data from the onboard BMI160.
Gumstix, Inc. announced the release of the Gumstix Raspberry Pi Zero Battery Board.
The Gumstix Raspberry Pi Zero Battery IMU board allows you to take your Raspberry Pi Zero anywhere by adding two rechargeable NiMH or NiCd batteries into the holder and it’s ready to go. Charging the batteries just requires plugging in the Raspberry Pi Zero using a USB cable. The onboard Bosch BMI160 3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis gyroscope allow you to easily track motion. You can also add a camera to enable wireless video streaming.
The Gumstix Battery IMU board can be customized to support a selection of other processors for wireless support. It is designed to attach to the bottom of the board.
