I'm having trouble programming the logic of 2 PIR sensors to print a message in console whenever a user place both hands on the PIR sensors.I have managed to successfully attach the PIR sensors to the raspberry pi using GPIO,GND and 5v port. The code that I currently have does print out a message in console whenever someone waves there hand across one but i'm having difficulty modifying the code to print an error message out when someone waves their hand on both the PIR sensors.
This is the error message I receive when I run my code.
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo python2 peter.py File "peter.py", line 23 new_state = "HIGH" and new_state2 = "HIGH" if current_state and current_state2 else "LOW" SyntaxError: can't assign to operator
This is the code
import RPi.GPIO as GPIO import time sensor = 4 sensor2 = 17 GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BCM) GPIO.setup(sensor, GPIO.IN, GPIO.PUD_DOWN) GPIO.setup(sensor2, GPIO.IN, GPIO.PUD_DOWN) previous_state = False current_state = False previous_state2 = False current_state2 = False while True: time.sleep(0.1) previous_state = current_state previous_state2 = current_state2 current_state = GPIO.input(sensor) current_state2 = GPIO.input(sensor2) if current_state2(TRUE) and current_state(FALSE) != previous_state2(FALSE) and previous_state(FALSE): new_state = "HIGH" and new_state2 = "HIGH" if current_state and current_state2 else "LOW" print("GPIO pin %s is %s" % (sensor, new_state, sensor2, new_state2))
