omiio.org is dedicated to fostering open source growth for mobile applications software development on TI’s OMAP™ platform.
Through omiio.org, you can collaborate, share and grow open source hardware and software.
This is about a portable media player with the best balance between price and specs:
-Android 2.3.3 or better
-The device should be social-oriented ( custom and intuitive UI with facebook, twitter, myspace, etc) (something like the INQ smartphones but not facebook exclusive)
-Sound quality must be highest possible (licensing DTS-codecs?)
- Must have a "good" screen (640x360 OLED?)
- Minimalist-industrial design
- Gaming would be an strengh taking in account the 4430 SOC
The Alex platform is a small robot composed of the following parts:
iRobot Create base
2 arms made of Bioloid parts
2 eyes on pan tilt mounts made of Nexus One phones and Bioloid parts
A PandaBoard for central control
Alex is part of a larger project to advance artificial intelligence through embodied ai. Check out the project website for details.
Why Alex is awesome:
Willow Garage had the right idea with the PR2, but the wrong pricepoint. Alex will be the PR2 for the rest of us. We're targeting a pricepoint just north of 1k, as opposed to 400k + for the PR2.
(This is the Pandacomb project submission with the official Pandacomb website link.)
Kozio, Inc. (www.kozio.com) has made available free use of their kDiagnostics® Suite, for owners of PandaBoard. The Kozio download gives users an interactive guided tour of the inner workings of PandaBoard, along with a full design verification and hardware validation solution. The download is immediately available directly from the Kozio website http://www.kozio.com/services-and-supports/downloads. Kozio also provides the same expert solution set for customers designing custom devices.
This project is to port honeycomb onto the panda, use hardware acceleration, have a capacitive touch screen, and make the whole project run on recharcgable batterie. What do you get? A powerful dual core tablet. Doesn't it just sound nice.
We are going to attempt to connect and control various sensors and components to the PandaBoard. The component sensors will be a two-directional gyroscope (ADG-500) along with its on-board temperature sensor, BlinkM - I2C Controlled RGB LED(s), an accelerometer device (ADXL-300). We will be using an ADS1100 A/D converter for for our sensor signal conversion.
We are looking forward to having the split processing computational power of OMAP4 for developing an add-on module which plugs on to a conventional ultrasonography equipment, analyzing video streaming over the video-out ports/network and providing Radiologists/Sonologists with diagnostic assistance based on computer vision and decision support, displayed over an adjunct interactive video display unit (touch screen LCD panel). The final product will have Image Processing apps working on DSP, base OS functioning on ARM and graphics rendering carried out on SGX.
I want to build a prototype simplified version of ubuntu, using panda board as the main Mobo.
The "monitor" will consist of a LCD screen which I will modify to be able to receive video from the board.
Some other things that will be needed to be integrated is a keyboard, and track-pad.
Gesture/vocal interface to help person suffering from handicap (Blindness, paraplegia, quadriplegia) or elder peoples to keep independence:
For different use schemes:
- To locate: a speaking GPS telling location (street name) on request (button or speech recognition).
- Read and tell (OCR and speech synthesis)
- Speech recognition actuators
- Gesture (eye movement or body movements) or speech commands for actuations
- Status of remote or local sensors of equipped home
- Communicate easily (voip and connected link thru wifi/GSM)
I have come across Wireless Sensor Networks for surveillance or an organization or environmental study etc.
Let us have a wireless sensor network which senses environmental gas composition.
So. i felt it would be a good idea to have access to the network, and get the required information from anywhere in the world. I am aiming at globalizing the network data, so as to have a Wide Area Network established.
I will interface a ZIGBEE transceiver module to the UART PORT of the pandaboard.
The ( transceiver + pandaboard ) will act as a base station to the wireless sensor network.
