Screen Controller

This system controls information shown on screens connected to Raspberry Pi computers. The screens can be instructed remotely to show either java programs loaded from Internet or to show webpages. Once installed there is no need to get physical access to the Raspberry PI for changing the running program or reboot. The programs running on the raspberry PI are identical and the PI is identified by MAC address.

To control the information shown on the screens you need a GitHub ID and be approved by the administrators of this site. Log in and send a mail to Lars.Holmberg@mah.se to get in control of a screen.

Here are some examples of student work.
