  9. User:rcarmo (Rui Carmo) I'm using Qt to create interactive status "dashboards" that can be hooked up to a number of data sources, render charts, tables, etc., and provide a rich UI to interact with them and drill down on various platforms. Qt gives me the flexibility to build an adaptable UI atop webservices (Using a mix of QTWebKit and native widgets) and the Raspberry PI would be the perfect delivery device to hook up those dashboards to HDTVs and add some nicer rendering via GL. Think of it as a cross between interactive digital signage and infoviz with network awareness and the ability to auto-configure and manage the displays remotely.
  10. alkavan (Igal Alkon) Been playing with Linux and C/C++ for 12 years, this days developing mostly web based applications, I have little development experience with Qt, but I'm exploring it (4.7) for future game development for PC and Mobile and I'm really excited with the 4.8 additions and VS2010 support.

User:jprvita (João Paulo Rechi Vita): I'm a developer of the QtWebkit project and have personal interest on writing a smart-tv platform with media center control capabilities and an integrate webbrowser that could be attached to any regular TV. The Raspberry Pi is an ideal hardware platform for that because of its reduced size and HDMI + RCA video jack and audio jack, and Qt with QtWebkit is the ideal software platform for this project. The project will be released under an open source license so anyone with a Raspberry Pi will be able to use it at home. Also, since there will be a graphical designer working with me on this project it will serve as an awesome showcase for Qt5 on embedded devices.
  12. User:mhoff I have senior experience in development of embedded uC devices. Driver development, touchscreen integration, hardware addons, network communication/protocols etc.. Want to bring Ethernet/IP stack http://opener.sourceforge.net to it to integrate with Allen Bradley PLCs - I have deep knowledge on this protocol and the PLC controllers. Qt5 could spend the Web based front end for this. Would also like to support education on embedded devices with an all in one place tutorial and guiding document how to develop embedded with IDEs like Eclipse and QTCreator, extending kernel with new drivers. Adapt QEMU to speedup development and simplify testing and debugging capabilities. Develop user space applications with QT based rich clients as well as WEB client applications. Seeing Raspberry PI with Qt as an ideal candidate for enabling a broad audience for embedded devices development.
  13. Miles Also a full time software engineer, new to QT but very focussed on the web space. Would like to investigate a media catalogue which can be browsed via web-APIs on the RaspberryPi.

Mentored by vgrade (Martin Brook).

  1. Joao de Deus I want to port my app Math Graphica, to the PI. It's a scientific advanced calculator with 3D OpenGL graphics. Math Graphica won the 3tr place in Qt Wetab App Challenge . It would be a nice project to low resource schools and students, among other math and engineering applications. I'm a electronic engineer and Qt Ambassador. It's been a while since I play with hardware, and PI seems to be a very nice board. I'm also developing a 3D cad software codename Lusitania, that could be in a future a interesting PI app. Math Graphica in Gitorious Math Graphica in Ovi
  2. GooRoo (Sergey Olendarenko): 1) Implement new concept of Integrated Development Environment (currently for Haskell) with Qt/QML. 2) Create viewer for Autodesk Maya scenes (.ma) with Qt Quick 3D. My Blog (only Russian yet).
  3. ✓* unormal (Mario Fux). Idea: Short: WiktionaryParser with QML frontend (later dbpedia frontend). Longer: Wiktionary as the source of free linguistic date is unstructured in itself and thus we need some parser to extract the data and store it (probably semantically annotated). But there is a huge amount of date in different languages, perfect for school and education and simple to add new information. dbpedia is a similar approach for the Wikipedia data. Experience: I'm a teacher, studying education, computer sciences and computational linguistics (for which I do the WiktionaryParser [1]). Working with Qt since some time on smaller projects and I'm a member of KDE [2] (mostly on the organizational side). Links: [1] http://www.cl.uzh.ch [2] http://www.kde.org [3] http://gitorious.org/wiktionaryparser (old project)
  4. doug: I want to use Qt5 on top of a minimal Linux system to create a tablet / console like UI experience for the RaspberryPi, the idea is to create an easy to use computer to introduce children to computing. The UI is designed in C+/QML and is designed so that users can modify and extend it as they get more confident in computing. Experience: I have over 5 years commercial experience in embedded programming including working with Broadcom SoC architectures and 7 in mass market UI development. I have an initial screenshot of the UI here [45]
  5. jmcardle(Julien McArdle): Idea- Use Qt5 to create a visual programming language interpreter to make software & ui development accessible to kids. Previous experience: I used Qt4 to create an interpreter that would create GUI front-ends for command-line applications. I also contribute apps to SourceForge. [46][47]
  6. davespice (David Honess): The Raspberry Pi needs a good quality LOGO/Turtle Graphics interpreter. This is one of the best ways to teach programming to children. It’s visual and I think kids will go for it. My plan is to create an up to date LOGO interpreter but with an added challenge mode. Level 1, draw a line. Level 2, draw a square. Level 3, equilateral triangle. Slowly graduating them onto doing more complex patterns and shapes using functions, looping and recursion. With a free draw mode there is scope for users sharing content with each other and all sorts of good things. The app could also be ported to mobile phones to reach even more people thanks to the Qt framework. About myself; principally I am a Microsoft .Net framework /Javascript/Ajax/jQuery developer. I work in a UK based software consultancy (http://www.arcsoftwareconsultancy.com/), clients include Universal Music (USA and Japan), The Royal College of Psychiatrists (London) and the Wellcome Institute (London). I have a private project which is the Age of Wonders Email Wrapper (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Age-of-Wonders-Email-Wrapper/173302036046975). This is a winforms app which restores email functionality to some 10 year old turn based strategy games. The tool is being adopted by the community that play these games.

  2. User:Scorpiion (Robert Åkerblom-Andersson): I'm an electronics engineer and software developer. I have a lot of knowledge in Linux and have done some application development with QT (I really like QT and use Linux and KDE every day, but I have not had the time to do lots of application developement since I'm more focus on systemlevel programming, I have written Linux drivers and then also application software in QT talking to the hardware for example). At the moment I'm working with both Linux and QT on the BeagleBoard-xM and Overo platforms (TI OMAP3530 based platforms). I'm doing this partly for personal satisfaction and partly since I do parttime job for a research group developing a embedded cameraplatform for use in sensor network research at Embedded Systems Lab. I'm developing my own Linux distribution for this project (Debian base with QT and camera drivers, a complete script to download and build a cross compilation toolchain is also included). I have published the project on Github and it is called Renux, a Debian based OS aimed at embedded ARM systems. It is not completely done yet and I have some stuff that's not pushed at the moment but it's getting there. So… I think the RaspberryPi platform look very interesting and fun! I would like to help with the porting of QT5 to this platform. I would also like to porting my own Debian based OS, and to make it a stable platform to use for them who want to use Linux+QT Embedded as there development platform. The description of "Taku", "Just the minimum Linux dependencies to boot Qt 5" sounds a lot like the end goal for my distribution Renux, so maybe I could help out in the community working on Taku as well. I have not done any huge open source contributions (yet :)) but I did report some bug in the Qt documention some time ago.

  5. Brian Hutchinson I am a long time embedded developer. See my linkedin profile http://www.linkedin.com/pub/brian-hutchinson/9/56/51b I have been Debian/KDE (hopefully no hard feelings still) developer/user since 1994. Started with Qt on Sharp Zaurus SL-5000 back in 2001. Have Nokia N800. I'm a competition shooter and I want to use Raspberry Pi, Yocto or Angstrom and Qt5 to build range wind flags for rimfire benchrest. Typical wind flags look like this http://www.thewindisnotyourfriend.com/flags/farm.html I want to make automated wind flags with Raspberry Pi to collect wind speed and direction and transmit this data (via USB 100m Bluetooth or WiFi) to Android phone (Qt5 application on Android or via VNC) acting as the "head end" sitting on the bench for the shooter to look at. My past projects include a Bianchi Cup moving target controller ran by a BeagleBoard for our gun club http://www.bedfordrrc.org/. Youtube video of BeagleBoard project here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzDVwqJeqos Uses a 4 button garage door opener to actuate the 4 different motors.

Occupationally I'm developing applications for medical research on my Linux system, using a cross compiler toolchain and cross platform frameworks (especially Qt) to satisfy the needs of my collaborators, which are mainly using Windows OS. In my spare time I would like to turn the RaspberryPi into a small and cheap video disk recorder (using an USB DVB-T/S stick) and multimedia webclient for the livingroom simply operable through an IR remote.
  12. tunix23: I am a C++ programmer from Ukraine. I use Qt for my cross-platform (Windows and Linux) desktop apps, but I'm very interested in software development for mobile (smartphones, tablets) and alternative platforms (like Raspberry Pi, OpenPandora, other ARM devices). The only problem now is hardware availability. I have some ideas for Raspberry Pi usage. I will develop a Pi Smart TV project (Raspberry Pi with some electronic stuff plus remote control and special software). The goal is to be able to make any TV smart. I hope this will be my next major project.
  13. User:arisilen (Ari Silen) Full time SW Engineer. Participated in several Qt / Qt Quick demo projects. Planning to develop a compact Qt media server with a Qt Quick UI. The device would be connected to network drives containing media and would be controllable with a IR remote.

I have extensive testing and feedback experience: I was the lead support engineer for two major new products at an Enterprise Unix vendor, tester and reviewer for new OS releases, and have been a technical reviewer of manuscripts for multiple books for O'Reilly and Associates and Wrox Press. (Full USB port necessary for external USB audio device support for this proposed project.)
  17. User:vdvoskin Hello, my name is Vadim Dvoskin – I’m an entrepreneur as well as a Qt developer. One of my projects is a content service (video + flash games), available via a set-top-box (checkout this link http://3vi.tv/). Currently, the hardware we are using is way too expensive. In addition to that, it’s PC architecture (I lied before when I said that it was a set-top-box ;)), thus, we are having trouble certifying the solution with security authorities such as verimetrix, and securemedia. Raspberry PI is exactly what we are looking for because its ARM, its linux qt (which is what we are on now and not planning to switch), and its relatively inexpensive. Given a Raspberry PI hardware, my developers and I would work on two things. 1. A VOD video player. 2. Webkit based browser used as a flash player. Also, in subsequent releases, we are planning to add social services such as video chat.
  18. User:Binreader (Floris Bos) Would like to create a simple but effective video streaming application (file stored on regular PC -> Raspberry-> TV). My previous Qt based project: Binreader

  1. Croozeus (Pankaj): Researcher, Developer, Nokia Developer Champion, Qt Ambassador, Open Source/ FOSS enthusiastic (significant work with Python on Symbian), Book author ; We would like use the board to create a simple linux based tablet for Indian markets (focusing on the local needs) - this is something which hasn't been explored by other players/companies - I believe a small team of students if guided properly can bring out something amazing in this area. The needs of the Indian audience being different in terms of user interface, apps used - for education, browser, book keeping, m-commerce, music - would be interesting to "focus on design" (keeping in mind Indian needs) and implement these; feasibility to use Qt 5 (specially QML) would be quite handy in developing/prototyping various local interfaces. The core idea is to make Indian people use this device in their daily life instead of personal computers.
  2. Avnee: Qt Ambassador, Student, Open source developer and Community contributor; Experience to develop Qt/QML apps and games. Interested to contribute to open source projects like KDE. I'll be happy to contribute by developing some Indian market relevant apps/games (specially in category of Education) on Qt 5 for the above mentioned Indian tablet project.
  3. gnuton (Antonio Aloisio) I started to use Qt several years ago; along the years I contributed to many opensource projects. The most popular ones are KDE4, KBlogger and the Qt port to Maemo4 and Maemo5. Lately I contributed to the development of QDe/"Antico Deluxe" a Qt based desktop (https://github.com/gnuton/QDe). Currently this project counts three contributors and is looking for new developers(contact me if interested in this project!;D). Our ambitious target is to have a modern, fast and lightweight desktop written in Qt/Qt Quick with a UI which can be used for Desktop as well as for Tablets. Of course Raspberry PI could be our development platform.

  7. User:slavko321 I am a skilled C+er, with a thing for building multimedia frameworks: http://www.naprava.net/about/ and a (fairly) recent love for QT. This opportunity will help me get acquiented with the inner workings of QT5, its vision and direction. I would work on enabling easy access to interactive apps on this platform. The practical results would be lowering the entry bar for interactive applications with this HW/SW combo, examples: - My camera/projection based game: http://www.vpong.com/ - I belive the hardware is just powerfull enough for most interactive cases, another example: http://www.peauproductions.com/blog/2011/10/19/consulting-job-gagarin-circular-touch-table/ (quite elaborate, multiple devices could be used for analysis/display and the network coordination that comes with it) Summary: better integration possibilities for interactivity new ideas, maybe additional APIs/Libraries and examples. p.s. Sound analysis/voice recognition, TV "smarttening" box (TM:), "Tablet" type easy consumption devices

Bradolub: Hello, I am a Russian engineer, working at JINR (Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, Dubna, Russia), I am planning to use the Raspberry Pi as a controlling device (to measure the aberration of beam parameters and send it to operator room) at the accelerator complex. I also want to create "smart home" using Raspberry Pi in my house . I use Qt to develop software.
  23. User:unittesting: Enthusiastic PyQt/pyside developer just taking first steps into QML. I'm developing a Zwave based home lighting automation server that will have a Qt GUI for configuration on the homeowner's TV and will be controlled by timers/cellphone/touch panel. The RPi will host the server and provide the TV interface.
  24. appedge(David Clounch): Target is a garden sprinkler controller. An app on a handset or computer connects to the controller via a QT based ssh encrypted connection. The controller accepts a QObject based message class that is passed on to the target device in the garden that activates the drip sprinkler system. This latter is fed by a rain barrel, but could be any similar device. The active device uses the same protocol as the handset. The controller joins the communication channels together. This system is a prototype that has many industrial uses and uses QtCore and QtSql among others. http://www.app-edge.com (I'm sorry, first week of December the app-edge web server is being replaced but will be back up soon).

Mentored by blackcoder (Tarek)

  1. blackcoder (Tarek) : Create a touch screen QML based control interface for autonomous robots, similar to the one we have currently deployed for the autonomous wheelchair [83].
  2. jgeact (Jorge Acosta): I want to work with the Qt5 and monitoring I/O real-time robot's system.I have been working with robot and Qt from 3 year ago. I would like port my program that work with every robot, whatever factory.
  3. User:alicemirror [Enrico Miglino]: I have developed a controller for a hand-made mill machine and built the machine too. This project is full open-hardware and open-source and was initially developed with a firmware based on Arduino board for hardware testing. This video [84] if the first test of the engine running with the controller while from the project main page [85] you can find an index of the components and here [86] you can find a knowledge base with the controller software and the hardware and mechanics schematic. At this point the actual state-of-the-art of the project is to manage the low lever controller board with a Qt Based application. With the raspberry Pi device I see it is possible to integrate bot of these elements in a single unit creating a very cheap controller interfacing the high level instructions to manage the graphic data directly on the machine.
  4. monkeyknight (Nicholas Kell): Build an easy to use robotics framework/platform using the onboard GPIO (similar to Wiring/Arduino). Create expansion boards for robotic peripherals. Using Qt5 for the kiosk-like interface for user interaction. It would be a great learning tool for kids getting into robots/electronics!
  5. carverdeacon (Carver Deacon): I'd create a simple robot controlling and monitoring device running with a basic touchscreen interface based around Qt so that common tasks and monitoring can be performed easily. In addition, there would be a lot of arduino and sensor work. Maybe even Kinect. Qt would be great for this because it'd allow me to port the interface to multiple platforms so that network control could be performed.
  6. ujwal2 (Ujwal Shrestha): Build Qt 5 based Arduino IDE for Raspberry Pi and even other port (windows, Mac etc). Learning will be even more fun with $25 Raspberry Pi and the amazing Arduino. Thinking of talking to education administrator of country(Nepal) about raspberry pi, like we did for OLPC XO. [87]
  7. User:fredb52 We are testing a number of different bot platforms that use ros, like Bilibot [88] as a base. We need to rewrite the graphics packages using Mingw Qt-ros and test them on this platform.
  8. User:kulve (Tuomas Kulve) This would be a perfect Linux platform for my robot project which is evolving to a flying thing. Currently I'm running the GUI-less Qt application on Gumstix OMAP3 for motor control, sensor reading, video encoding and remote control over WLAN.

More Info Here: Humanoid Robots and My profile.
  11. samimk (Samim Konjicija): Currently working with university students mainly on automation and robotics projects using various ARM-based boards. Planning to switch to RaspberryPi+Qt, when it becomes available. One of current projects is development of Qt application for ARM-based board, as fuzzy controller for water level and flow control. GUI should provide tuning the controller, and graphical presentation of measurements and setpoints.
  12. User:trilion99 (Klaus Petersen):I would like to use the Raspberry Pi and its Qt extension for two purposes: 1. As a small, light-weight frontend interface for my anthropomorphic flute playing robot WF-4RVI [89]. The robot already runs on qt4 (e.g. qthread for motor control threads, gui for pattern generator etc.), so it would be convenient to port parts of the interface directly to an external control device. 2. In my company LP-Research [90] we develop miniature sensing units for human motion tracking. For the analysis of the resulting data and control of the sensors itself we developed an open-source framework OpenMAT. This framework uses qt4 extensively. Customers would like to use our system on mobile, small form factor devices as well. The Raspberry Pi would be an excellent platform for such a data-logger / terminal.
  13. User:rosia.nicolae (rosia.nicolae): Migrate our Ground Control Station application we are using for our Autonomous Rover to RaspberryPi so we can get rid of the laptop dependency and have a flexibile station for really fast deployment. We placed first on the European Phase of Digilent Design Contest and 2nd in the International Phase. We were the only ones using Qt.

  15. Lee Sangdon I have a home service robot project. It's name is Avatar. It can watch in office by using laptop. Laptop is too big in this project and it's efficiency is low. So, i thinks Raspberry Pi can be replace laptop. And it can have more efficiency at size and energy. http://donnim.tistory.com/entry/Avatar
  16. rkekki: Raspberry Pi would be really great for our project. I'm building on open source HW expansion board for reading IMU sensor data and enabling the data in Qt5 applications.
  17. User:mirondeau (Michael Rondeau): I have been doing embedded programming for over 30 years, the last 5 years using embedded Linux on Cell Phone repeaters. I have used QT Creator and PyQt to create user interfaces for Python programs I wrote for testing the embedded web pages and SNMP on the our products. I am working on a robot at home that I want to remote control using an Android phone or tablet via WiFi on a Linux platform. The Android device would control the robot using a QT touch display and show status on the display. The Raspberry Pi will be the robot controller receiving commands and giving status to a pseudo display using QT which can be sent to the Android device via web pages or maybe VNC for the 'inside' look. I plan on using the Android device accelerometers to control the robot speed and direction. This technonogy would be very benificial to handicapped people for controling such as a wheelchair by touch pad or motion using the accelormeters.
  18. User:abelvesa (Abel Vesa): Port our existing robot which uses Arduino to talk over I2C with a BMA180 accelerometer, ITG3200 gyroscope and HMC5883 magnetometer to estimate the 3D pose to RaspberryPi. The final output of this application would be kernel drivers for these sensors, ROS packages for them and Qt demos on interfacing with the sensors.
  19. User:Smogzer (João Xavier):I'm a roboticist currently developing man machine interfaces. My current project is to develop commercially available man-machine interfaces that can use multiple modalities (depth-cameras, touch, voice, smart-phone, etc) to create a kiosk/living room ecosystem based on modules/apps. Will use alot of GStreamer, Primesense open-ni and QtQuick 2.0 in opengl 2.0. See [[91]] and my opensource contributions at [[92]].
  20. flakopana (alexsi adad): My project is to implement a controller (neural network) for e-puck robot that can explore the environment, find food, and away from the light, which is designed and supervised by the raspberry pi [93]
  21. User:fredb52 We are testing a number of different bot platforms that use ros, like Bilibot [94] as a base. We need to rewrite the graphics packages using Mingw Qt-ros and test them on this platform.
  22. jacky: We propose the use the Raspberry PI and QT5 to replace the processing unit and brain of our current small humanoid robots, that have participated at various international robot competitions including RoboCup and FIRA HuroCup competitions. In particular we want to focus on the climbing wall and obstacle run competitions by using a stereo vision setup.
  23. adriano_frutuoso (Adriano) and andrehls (Andre):

We´re working on the RD5NT (a robotic manipulator), using arduino and Windows for controlling it. With raspberry we can move the development from Windows to Linux and use the Qt for the development of the user interface (UI). The video RD5NT shows the current state of the project and UI shows our current UI.

  1. shubhamharnal (Shubham Harnal) : Real-time reporting of hospital-beds availability. In India, precious time is wasted in taking a patient in an ambulance to a hospital, only to find out that there is no availability of beds; would like to incorporate the RaspberryPi and Qt5 framework to provide a web-enabled and SMS (short-messaging-service)-enabled interface to the reporting of this availability. Precious time(= lives!) can be saved if a patient can be taken straight to a hospital with the relevant resources available. The RaspberryPi/Qt5 interface would be used by the attendants inside the ambulance to check availability; GSM and GPS modules will be attached to the RaspberryPi and the interface to be used for the enumeration. Will combine previous experience with ARM/Linux and current programming experience in the domain of distributed systems to deliver said item, contributing towards my Masters' Thesis (Masters in Embedded Systems).

Possible further application in student IT projects.
  3. User:federico I am the maintainer of man(1) and work at Canonical. I have been using Qt since eearly releases of Qt Embedded 2.x, and I would love to contribute. My idea is to build an "atomic clock" by connecting a GPS time-source via the USB port, manage the latency of the signal, and output the time to the network (Ntpd) and to thescreen (Qt front-end to the system). After this, the next project is to build a small source of "true randomness" via a geiger counter and a Raspberry Pi to manage the reading of background radiation events. Finally (long shot and not Qt-related), it may be nice to use the Raspberry Pi as a platform to teach U-Boot and Jtag development to novice embedded developers.

The Pi could be embedded by the wall's controller using GPIO to control the DMX512 controller and drive the TV. It would show percentage of source tree changes that pass tests, fail tests, or break compilation by office overlayed as charts on a map, and could update the 256 vertical lights with the last 256 changes' status. Granted this can also be done with a PC, but the board will fit in an available wall pannel, so that's a strong incentive. At this price every team could have one once the monitoring software is ported.

Mentored by Claudia Rauch.

This is a special allocation of 10 boards agreed with the KDE project.— Qgil 15:04, 24 February 2012 (CET)

  1. ✓* Claudia Rauch: KDE proposes to use Raspberry PI devices to further an already considerable commitment to Qt. In particular, Qt5 has been integral to planning the future KDE core architecture, as Qt has been since KDE started. The KDE Project has a core goal to be widely deployable, just as Qt itself is. It would be advantageous and motivational for developers and students to hack on Raspberry PIs, providing them access to a new range of devices and a simple, portable, leading edge platform for Qt development. We will use the Raspberry PIs for coding tutorials to encourage new KDE and Qt developers. They will also be used withexisting KDE/Qt developers to promote Qt5 development on low-end devices. There are also opportunities to promote Qt, Raspberry PI and KDE to general audiences. Specifically, we request Raspberry PIs for use in a Qt/KDE workshop from 26 to 30 March 2012. This workshop will be held in Tallinn, Estonia to promote Qt and Akademy, KDE’s annual world summit (30th June - 6th July in Tallinn). Following the pre-Akademy workshop, the machines will be used for additional tutorials and workshops, application development and testing, Qt/KDE demos and promotion, and developer recruiting.


People selected in this area is expected to help writing blogs and publishing videos of projects listed above. They are also meant to take any opportunities to present and demo Qt 5 projects running on the Raspberry Pi in events. If this is not what you had in mind contact me, please.— Qgil 02:29, 9 December 2011 (CET)
