Using the Raspberry Pi computer with attached camera, PIR motion sensor and rotary encoder module, we were able to develop a multi purpose interactive information display console. Written in Python with the Tkinter library providing the Graphical User Interface.

Purposely encased in beautiful clear plastic inspiring intrigue and fascination with useful security features protecting the USB ports in public display areas. A special thanks to ModMyPi for very kindly agreeing to design a case based around their existing Motion Sensor + Vesa cases with the addition of the Keyes Rotary Encoder Module.

TiM allows us to display our ‘hello my name is’ welcome board, our safety screens and educational boards which feature SOPs, summaries of the latest critical care evidence, and much more! Even better, you can build your own TiM for the price of a Raspberry Pi (approx £40) and some inputted code which we have shared as an open access resource. IT innovation within the NHS can be affordable!
