Raspberry Pi setup

Already done, if you wish to run a demo, skip to the next chapter

SD card preparation:

  • Use Raspberry Pi Imager to flash the SD card with Raspberry Pi Buster OS (Do not use Bullseye OS)
  • Within Raspberry, Pi Imager enable SSH, Wifi
  • Raspberry pi user/pass: pi/test


OS preparation:

  • Optional: use a USB hub to connect the wireless dongle, keyboard, and mouse to Raspberry Pi
  • Connect display over an HDMI cable
  • Make sure Raspberry pi is connected to the network
  • Open terminal (SSH or on Desktop) and update OS: sudo apt update sudo apt full-upgrade
  • And reboot sudo reboot
  • Power off Raspberry Pi
  • Wire control signals on the IO board like in the diagram below:



  • Connect to the Raspberry Pi terminal
  • Run command sudo raspi-config
  • Select menu Interface options / Camera and select ENABLE
  • Do not restart when asked, exit configuration program
  • Update blob configuration sudo wget -O /boot/dt-blob.bin
  • Now reboot with a command sudo reboot
  • After Raspberry has rebooted, connect to the console and check if the camera is detected vcgencmd get_camera
  • In order to test the video, run command raspivid -f -k -awb greyworld -mm average -t 0
  • For more convenient behavior, add this command to /etc/rc.local - camera will start video on HDMI port right after reboot
