This Instructable takes a project from my last Instructable ( Thermistor - Fan control using LabVIEW) and adds in the use of a Raspberry pi 3 for wireless control of the WF32. This means that you can now set up the fans and servo with your WF32 in your entertainment center and then control them over WiFi. In this Instructable I go over how to set up the Raspberry Pi but if you run into any trouble please refer to the Getting Started With the Raspberry Pi 2 (LabVIEW) Instructable.

Step 1: Materials

1) Temperature sensor [TMP36] (250 mV output at 25°C)

2) Two Slide switches

3) three 240Ω resistors

4) 100 uF electrolytic capacitor

5) Tactile button switch

6) Breadboard(I use a MyProto Protoboard and a 270 tie breadboard)

7) Two PWM controlled fans(I use two different sizes in my demo)

8) Small servo motor

9) ChipKIT WF32

10) Raspberry Pi 2 (I use the Raspberry Pi 3, but the process is the same)

11) Wifi dongle (Wi-Pi USB WiFi Module is a good choice)

12) microSD with adaptor(8GB or larger)

13) LabVIEW

Everything but the fans, LabVIEW, Raspberry Pi, Wifi dongle, and WF32 is included in the LabVIEW Interaction Parts Kit
