Raspberry Pi is small credit card sized, light weight and compact computer available which is used by both professions and hobbyist alike. This mini computer can do (almost) any thing a normal linux machine can do. It is widely used in various industries, robotics, home automation projects.
During the first months of 2018 many new accessories and boards for Raspberry Pi was released widening the scope of IOT as well as robotics which lead to so many opportunities for hobbyists to build their own Raspberry Pi Projects. Even a new version of Raspberry Pi - Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ was released with cool new updates and upgrades.
But the amount of tutorials for these new boards are limited and the official documentations are a bit hard for beginners to understand.
Raspberry Pi Projects 2018
Our team has collected these accessories and have made some cool Raspberry Pi Projects of 2018 and some basic tutorials explaining the same making it easy for everyone to understand. With a little bit of tweaking, you can make your own products.
Below are the list of Raspberry Pi Projects 2018 which includes newer technologies like MATRIX Voice and Creator.
Interested in home automation using voice commands? Why not use Alexa. Build your home automation system using Alexa, MATRIX and Raspberry Pi in this project.
In this tutorial, I show you how to set up Amazon Alexa in your MATRIX Voice Device. Before going into this, it would be good if you know what a MATRIX Voice is and what it can do. Click Here to know more about MATRIX Voice and what it can do.
Let us build a home automation system that can control electrical appliances such as lights, fans, gates etc suing our mobile phone from anywhere around the world. All you need is a Raspberry Pi, some relays and an android phone. One of the coolest Raspberry Pi Projects of 2018.
Easily manage multiple Raspberry Pi and/or Linux machines together in one go. Learn how to easily install software, update, upgrade and run custom scripts in multiple devices in one tap on your mobile phone.
Let us build a robot that can be controlled using your mobile phone wirelessly over WiFi. Here, I will be using an App RootSaid – WiFi Command Center to send UDP commands to the listener (robot). The listener accepts the UDP packets and then use it to execute a set of instructions to drive the motor. Now lets get started.
In this tutorial, I will show you how you can setup an IP camera using Raspberry Pi and use it to stream live video and view it on your mobile phone, laptop or other devices from anywhere
Interested in WiFi? In this post, I will explain how I made a WiFi station that can give you access to far away WiFi networks from your home. Before continuing, you should have a clear idea on WiFi Networks, Working of a Wireless Router and WiFi Security.
With Raspberry Pi Projects 2018 list, we are showing you some awesome Raspberry Pi projects and ideas as well as tutorials of the presented project, which are build by various Raspberry Pi enthusiasts and experts. These projects are very easy to build and really interesting to tinker around.
History of Raspberry Pi Projects
This mini computer is used by hobbyist and hackers around the world for home as well as industrial applications. There are carious versions/models of Raspberry Pi. On 26th November 2015, Raspberry Pi Zero was launched for $5. On 28th February 2017 a new variant of Pi Zero – The Raspberry Pi Zero W employing inbuilt WiFi and Bluetooth chipset with chip scale antennas was launched. This is now the cheapest Raspberry Pi with wireless network connectivity. So what makes the Raspberry Pi Zero W such a big deal? Inbuilt WiFi chipset allowed users to make cool Raspberry Pi W projects with WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity without the need for adding an external WiFi Adapter. And there came an era of Raspberry Pi W Projects.
Raspberry Pi Foundation have released their latest Raspberry Pi board – Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ with neat upgrades
- 1.4 GHz 64 bit quad core ARM Cortex A53 CPU
- Dual band 802.11ac wireless LAN and Bluetooth 4.2 wireless support
- Faster Ethernet (Gigabit Ethernet over USB 2.0)
- (PoE) Power Over Ethernet support
- Improved PXE network and USB mass storage booting
- Improved Thermal Management
The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ is powered by a powerful 64 bit quad-core processor running at 1.4 GHz, a dual band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wireless chipset), Bluetooth 4.2 / BLE, faster Ethernet, and PoE capability via a separate PoE HAT.

This development board has taken its place on top of all Single Board Computers available in the market when it was introduced to public. This is due to the ease with which applications can be developed as well as wide scope of Projects that can be build using this tiny board. The cost of this board is very low when compared to other boards with the same specs.
Another reason why public prefer Raspberry Pi is their active community. Raspberry Pi have an active community which support young enthusiasts and hobbyists, helping with new Raspberry Pi Projects, developing newer boards and technology while still providing support to older Raspberry Pi versions - Software as well as Hardware.
They have also conducted various programs to inspire and promote young generation in the field of electronics. Coolest Projects is one such program which allows people to show off their Latest Raspberry Pi Projects to the world. This project showcase is held once in a year which will empower young generation, hobbyists and enthusiasts to build new Raspberry Pi Projects home home as well as official needs.
