Raspberry Pi Zero W | Raspbian Headless Setup over Wi-Fi | Tutorial & Project

Raspberry Pi Zero W is a microprocessor-based Single Board Computer developed by Raspberry Pi Foundation. It contains Broadcom BCM2835 System-on-a-Chip (SoC). Raspberry Pi Zero W supports IEEE 802.11 b/g/n wireless networking standards and operates on 2.4GHz frequency band. Raspberry Pi Zero W will connect to your Wi-Fi network and you should able to find its IP Address on your wireless router’s configuration page.

VNC Connect which is included in the Raspbian operating system, consists of a VNC Server application that captures the desktop of the Raspberry Pi in real-time and enable us to remotely control it. We can also transfer files to and from the Raspberry Pi providing we are connecting from the VNC Viewer running on the computer.

COMPONENTS REQUIRED

Components that are required:


- 16GB Class-10 MicroSD Card: http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/bdibkGqG

- 5V 2.5A DC Power Supply: http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/cGVPju0o

CONNECTIONS & SETUP

In this tutorial, we will use VNC Connect to remotely access and securely control the Raspberry Pi. Software and Source Code that are required:








Now, let’s setup the board.

- Insert the MicroSD Card into the Computer.

- Format the MicroSD Card.

- Write the Raspbian image to the MicroSD Card.

- Open the boot partition of the MicroSD Card.

- Create a file named “wpa_supplicant.conf”.

- Edit and configure the “wpa_supplicant.conf” file.

- Replace the network credentials according to your Wi-Fi network.

- Create an empty file named “ssh” without any extension, to enable the SSH.

- Insert the MicroSD Card into the Raspberry Pi Zero W.

- Connect the Power Supply to the Raspberry Pi Zero W.

- SSH into the Raspberry Pi Zero W, enter the IP Address into the Host Name field.

- Login to the Raspberry Pi Zero W, enter the username as “pi” and password as “raspberry”.

- Enable the VNC Server.

- Connect to the virtual desktop of Raspberry Pi Zero W, enter the IP Address into the Search Bar.

- Authenticate to the VNC Server, enter the username as “pi” and password as “raspberry”.

After a few seconds, you should see the desktop of the Raspberry Pi Zero W inside a window on your computer. You will be able to control it as though you were working on the Raspberry Pi itself.
