About this project
This hands on lab will show you how to use a 5v relay to simulate clicking a capacitive touch screen from a Raspberry Pi 2 device running Windows IoT Core.
The basis of this project is no different than a typical Blinking LED program, but is intended to highlight to new developers in the Hardware / IoT space that a little creativity can lead to interesting results. Most sensor-based IoT projects consist of reading or writing to Digital and / or Analog GPIO pins. What makes the project interesting is what you read and or write to and how you do it =)
In addition, this project should introduce you to some of the standout features of Windows IoT Core. These include, the ability to create and display custom user interfaces using XAML, prototyping controls which affect hardware, and the ability to deploy and debug on the RPi 2!
Let's get started!
