How to use Nvidia Jetson devices on balena

Access the full capabilities of Jetson devices in balenaCloud. Recent versions of balenaOS provide easy access to JetPack components, giving your containers access to the GPU’s power. Learn how to build a project to start accessing a world of AI tools, including CUDA and OpenCV, below. Hardware refresher Nvidia

Analyze sounds using AI on the edge and fleet intelligence, Part 1

Can we use AI to help us identify and quantify noise pollution? In this project, we’re using a Coral Dev Board or a Raspberry Pi 4 with an attached Edge TPU to listen to ambient sounds 24/7 and categorize them for us. We’ll also demonstrate how we

Introducing balenaHub: an easier way to find and publish apps and projects for edge devices

Now you can find IoT and edge projects created by other product builders, like you. Simply go to balenaHub, find a project that you want to try, add your devices, and begin. We built this feature as part of our second Release Party. Massive thanks for every teammate who contributed

Receive and store LoRa sensor data from TTN using a Raspberry Pi (part 2)

Back in the first part of this series, we detailed the process of building a simple LoRa-connected weather station to monitor temperature, humidity, and pressure, and send the readings to The Things Network (TTN). In this second part, we’re going to take a look at how you can capture

Build a simple solar-powered weather station with LoRa & The Things Network (part 1)

We’ve covered a couple of ways to build a LoRa gateway for The Things Network (TTN) here on the blog and on YouTube, but what about if you want to take advantage of your own gateway and deploy some sensors in your home or garden? This two-part series will

How to classify socks using a Raspberry Pi, Edge Impulse, and balena

We’re going to create a project on a Raspberry Pi with a Camera that distinguishes between socks using the Edge Impulse Machine Learning system running on balena. We all know that matching socks is a nightmare, so having an affordable, intelligent system saying if a sock matches with another

Never lose your stuff again: tracking Bluetooth beacons with a Raspberry Pi

Never lose something important to you again by using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons and Raspberry Pi sensors to track your stuff. Are your keys at home or in the office? By following this guide, you’ll soon know. Introduction What’s Bluetooth/BLE and what’s a beacon? So

Make a security camera system in 30 minutes or less

Use a single-board computer or spare laptop, a webcam and free software to build your own surveillance system. There are many reasons for wanting security cameras: watching blind spots around your home, keeping a remote eye on your children playing, or finding where the delivery person lobbed your package. In

Deploy a LoRa Basics™ Station gateway with TTN and balena

In the past we have showed how to deploy a The Things Network (TTN) LoRa gateway with balena, and how to build an outdoor TTN LoRa gateway with balenaFin. In this blogpost, you will learn how to deploy a The Things Network (TTN) LoRa gateway running the newest Semtech Packet

Rapid prototyping a GPS tracker with balenaOS: a community perspective

Our guest community author, Xabier Crespo of SC Robotics, walks through a GPS project that uses Docker and balenaOS, written in Python. Learn more about their prototyping process using balenaOS and try the project. My name is Xabier Crespo and I’m a co-founder at SC Robotics, a small consulting
