BotSpeak PRU Firmware#

Summary: Developing a remoteproc firmware which will allow high level languages to access PRU (programmable real time unit) functionality on the Beaglebone Black via remote procedure calls. The firmware on the PRU will support a small interpreter which can receive code fragments from the client language and execute them in a loop. The scripting language is similar to Chris rogers Botspeak. Developing this library will allow language independent runtime control over the PRU.

PyBBIO Library Development#

Summary: Developing the PyBBIO library to include an SPI Library, Library for interfacing a camera and various sensors such as pressure sensor etc. Adding C extension to Python system calls to make the code run faster. Interfacing a BLE module and an example code to log sensor values on Xively’s feed.

Summary: Create the first Linux-based autopilot for flying robots using the BeagleBone and the BeagleBone Black as the “hardware blueprint”. For this purpose I will focus on integrating ArduPilot (most popular autopilot) in the BeagleBone (Black). The main tasks performed will be userspace drivers development, the Robot Operative System Integration (ROS), web IDE exploration and security assessment.

Summary: I’m going to develop a new platform for creating beagleboard interactive tutorials.This platform will be develop and design in an interactive way allowing users to easily create tutorials. The platform will allow all type of users to create interactive tutorials for sharing with the beagleboard community. The difference between other platform will be that this platform will allow the user to run the code if they have a board. This is a great advantage allowing user to run the tutorials live.

Beagle Andriod Remote Display (BARD)#

Summary: “One cable to rule them all”. I intend to build a system where all the basic peripherals - keyboard, mouse and display, can be connected to BeagleBone by attaching it with a USB cable to Android phone. This will be implemented as a kernel module and an ready to use out-of-box app for Android. This module shall have a greater reach and also serve as seed for extending to other systems - Windows, iOS, Ubuntu phones etc.
