CCTronics: when Navio+ meets ROS and QT5

Introduction: In robotics and industrial application, data sharing and code reuse are important keys of success. Many efforts have been made by academic researchers to improve Robotic Operating System (ROS) functionalities to extend this middleware beyond its data sharing capability. The result can be appreciated by all the people who have the patience to compile a version and […]

Monicelli: esoterical programming via “supercazzole”

I could not resist to the temptation to try such interesting programming language. Enjoy the following code, it is a mysterious way to show how a digital filter works 😉 For more info: https://github.com/esseks/monicelli The resulting C++ code: which yields to the following execution:

Raspberry + QEMU – Bash scripts to manage Virtual and SDCard OS images

Introduction: Raspberry Pi is a very popular development platform based on ARM processors. Recently a fantastic IMU/GPS combo shield was released for such platform by EMLID. While source code of several components is available by their git-hub, additional software components (for example ROS) could be interesting to develop your robotic application… As first step, to get confident with the Raspberry […]

FlyMaple: Low Level Control and Data Acquisition

  Flymaple is a controller board, based on the Maple Project. The FlyMaple embeds a M32F103RET6 (ARM Cortex-M3) as it’s main MCU. It integrates a 3-Axis accelerometer,a 3-Axis gyroscope,a 3-Axis compass and a barometric pressure sensor. By using the 10 dgrees of freedom IMUs and powerful 72MHz high-performation microcontroller, flymaple is powerful enough to handle […]
