Using BeagleBone Blue to build an Autopilot Robot (part 1) – Circuit Cellar article

Hi folks! My name is Pedro Bertoleti and I’m a software engineer from Brazil. The October issue of Circuit Cellar’s magazine came out yesterday (9/18/2018), and I’ve written one of the articles of this issue (Title: “Building an Autopilot Robot (part 1)”, page 16). This article shows the groundwork for reliable  speed estimation based in the accelerometer measurements and uses this speed in a PID controller to make an Autopilot system for a 4-wheel robot. This project uses as development kit the amazing BeagleBone Blue, a board focused on robotics projects usage.   Autopilot Robot – project features   This … Continue reading Using BeagleBone Blue to build an Autopilot Robot (part 1) – Circuit Cellar article

Building a device tree overlay for your new PocketCape design

New blog post from BeagleBoard and BeagleBone co-creator Jason Kridner: Much has been made of the complexities of the Linux device tree configuration mechanism–it is both a savior and a curse. It saves us from needing to maintain custom kernel logic for every possible board and daughterboard (Cape or PocketCape) setup and curses us with a new syntax to configure all of the specifics of […] via Building a device tree overlay for your new PocketCape design Continue reading Building a device tree overlay for your new PocketCape design
