Showcase and awards reception for PA's previous Raspberry Pi competition for 2012/13

PA Consulting Group, in collaboration with the Raspberry Pi Foundation, challenged teams from schools and universities, as well as individual inventors, to make the world a better place using a Raspberry Pi. The videos below give a taster of the projects that made it to the finals.

Here is just a taster of the incredible entries that we received:  

  • a lap-time recording device for running clubs, to enable different schools to share results online and create a league

  • an educational game to measure the maths achievements of primary school children

  • a device for monitoring the energy being used by a house's lights and central heating

  • an automated schoolwork and homework distribution/collection device

  • a system to simulate the occupation of a household, controlling house lights to deter opportunistic burglars

  • a fact-learning game for  nine to 12-year-olds

  • encryption software to provide extra security for computers

  • a small unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) to deliver packages around a school. 


PA's technology experts in Cambridge recently used a Raspberry Pi to shrink a 30-foot mobile base-station. Click here to watch the video of how this was done. For more information on PA's expertise in technology and innovation, please click here.
