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.
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.
New to all this but here is what I want to do.
1. Use the Pandaboard as a 3G/4G Broadband Router. Connection will be shared on WiFi as well as LAN
2. It ofcourse implies there's a DHCP Server somewhere in there
3. Enclose suitably and mount in a vehicle and make a plan for powering the board
4. Plan is to use a modified usb cellphone charger so that 12V to 5V is done on the cheap :)
5. Therefore, I can have WiFi in car.
6. Should be portable so that i can regularly take out and use at home as well.
The goal of this project is to build a Slackware ARM optimized for the Pandaboard.
The starting point is Slackware ARM: http://armedslack.org/
Slackware ARM has been already installed successfully on the Pandaboard.
Here are some useful info: http://giovanni.wordpress.com/pandaboard/
The next steps are to recompile kernel and packages for Pandaboard optimization.
Note: at the moment this is an unofficial porting of Slackware to Pandaboard.
This is a USB based boot utility for OMAP4 Platform. And allows you to boot OMAP4 platform over USB interface.
Usage: ./usbboot ./aboot.bin u-boot.bin
where: usbboot is the PC side utility listening on USB bus for asic-id from omap
aboot.bin is the second-stage loader getting loaded to internal sram of omap
The second-stage loader loads u-boot.bin to external ddr
(u-boot.bin can be replaced by any binary that one wishes to execute from ddr)
Project is maintained by Brian Swetland.
Porting Arch Linux to the PandaBoard, a continuation of what's already done over at PlugApps - we have ported Arch Linux to Marvell's Sheeva platform, and the Pandaboard is a much more powerful platform.
The goal of this project is to port Qi bootloader to the PandaBoard. Qi is a tiny, fast, "no frills" bootloader for ARM architectures. It permits direct loading of Linux kernel without intervention of u-boot. Its aim is to stay at the minimum needed to load and boot Linux kernel (without boot-menus or additional peripheral init).
At the moment there are Qi's versions for Samsung s3c* and omap3 (in a different branch) but there is no omap4 version. This project will try to develop and maintain a working version for omap4.
making usefull and low-cost, but full operating Android/Ubuntu tablet for internet browsing, gaming and almost everything you can imagine.
