I am as new as possible for this, so please don’t cut my throat! I have a Pi 3 B+. I’ve installed Raspbian, and I have successfully logged onto my account and I can see a dashboard with very basic information. When I try to add a sensor to my Pi, my mouse wont let me. It turns to a circle with a line through it.
Remember this is day 1 for me…
My guess is I’m not doing something first. Do I need to wire it up correctly to the Pi, before it will let me add a sensor to my dashboard?
I am using this Raspberry Pi to monitor functions of a machine I built. I want to see shafts turn via a potentiometer show up on my dashboard as graphic. If the values are out of my range I want it to do another function to keep it in my desired range.
But my problem is, I cant get any function to be added to my Pi. Its greyed out so I cant select it ot the mouse turns to circle with line through it.
I also have a Arduino Uno. I got it because I couldn’t tell if I needed it in addition to a Pi3 or if I could use it by its self.
Please help me! Or tell me where I can go to find tutorials.
