Starter Projects

The Omega is a great platform to learn how to work with electronics, how to write programs, and how to interact with Linux systems. Let’s start with a few projects to get acquainted with using the Omega.

LED Traffic Light


The concepts covered in the starter projects:

  • Using scripts to implement logic and perform specific actions
  • Controlling external electronics using the Omega


Projects to get you started working with the Omega:

  1. Morse Code on the Omega’s LED
    • For our very first project, we’ll write a script that takes text, converts it into morse code, and shows the morse code message on the Omega’s built-in LED
  2. Traffic Light using LEDs
    • Get started making projects with external circuits by creating a miniature traffic light with a few LEDs
