An extensible low-cost open platform for learning embedded control & robotics in multithreaded Linux. Runs ROS, Python, Simulink, LabVIEW.
Drive some geared, DC motors via 12vDC lead acid battery w/ the BBGW, Sabertooth 2 x 12, and a Motor Bridge Cape attached!
We use the compounded knowledge we have gained in class to make an autonomous RC car that follows a lane and stops at a red box stop.
Throwing some motors are okay but making them go with the LoadCape is much more sophisticated.
Official community documentation for BeagleBoard.org PocketBeagle, the ultra small, ultra flexible, ultra affordable GHz Linux computer.
GStreamer will be compiled from source to read compressed H264 video directly from an HD webcam to not waste CPU resources on a BeagleBone.
Have you ever been tired of your old hardware and wanted to upgrade with all the fixings?
BeagleBone Blue's DC motor drivers can be used to drive bipolar stepper motors too! Pair them up with a little code for open loop control.
Did you want 16 servos in rotation all at once, well... do you?
This example shows you how to use Simulink Coder™ Support Package for BeagleBone® Blue Hardware to run a Simulink® model
Did you want to handle some 12v servos with your BBBW and make them available with an already completed SDK?
