In this article I will discuss popular operating systems for the Raspberry Pi. All of these systems are open source and free to use. A few of them are designed for more specific purposes, and may not be necessarily well suited for industrial applications. The majority of operating systems on this list are more generic desktop systems that can be adapted to run as an industrial control system. I will explain how you can utilize these OS’s in such a manner in each of their respective sections.

Raspberry Pi Camera Module Software

In my last article I discussed the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s Camera Module, but focused mainly on its hardware. In this article I am going to discuss the software that utilizes the hardware. The main ways to use the module is with raspistill and raspivid, which are Linux commands. They are used to record a still image or video in the Raspbian operating system. These Linux commands can also be called from a C program, and I’ll cover more on this later. You can also utilize the camera module using a Python library called picamera. Pyhton is a very easy to learn high-level language. It is much less like C and is more comparable to Java.

MobileApp Systems, a developer of mobile hardware and software solutions for demanding applications, is proud to announce the immediate availability of Proto Armour for Raspberry Pi and Camera, the world’s first metal protective enclosure that combines the Raspberry Pi computer and camera module. This high-performance visual computing solution is both compact and extremely durable.
