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 project is aimed to develop a 2 channel 50Msps 12bit DAQ system, plus 32 channel digital analyzer. Scope of this project includes both hardware and software development.
Spartan 6 FPGA will be used to perform ADC and logic input control. ARM processor will be used to transmit data to PC through USB2.0 or Ethernet.
The ARM processor will run Embedded Linux (likely Linaro). Control software on PC will be developed to generate VCD formated output. VCD data can be easily opened using waveform viewer like GTKView.
The Pandaboard enclosure provides protection for the Pandaboard while keeping all the connector and LCD accessible. It is designed to be cut and modified to adapt the internal connectors as well. It includes an external push button for the reset and user buttons on the board.
It will be available at http://amzn.com/B0050R7QI2
The Home Brew Robotics Club (Silicon Valley, CA) has decided to pool their efforts by selecting a single high-end processor board (currently PandaBoard) to use on their higher end robots.
This will be known as the Robot Reference Platform (RRP).
It has been recognized that keeping up to date with the latest high end processor boards is a never ending effort. As each individual strives to make progress with the next, latest and greatest development, a lot of time is spent reinventing and rediscovering solutions that work.
The goal of this project is to establish a desktop environment for Android. Specifically for a living room setting, connected to a large LCD television.
The platform will be partially open source using the Android OS and the Android Marketplace. The Box will be controlled via a Bluetooth All-Inclusive-Trackpad.
The proprietary trackpad will include the following:
Bluetooth 2.1 Capability
QWERTY stationary monochrome trackpad backlight
(Optional features could include, compass, gyro, and a VGA camera)
TiroKart: the Total Immersion Remotely Operated Go-Kart
This is a specification for what I am trying to achieve with this project:
* Off-road and racing go-kart adapted for computer control.
* Ruggedized on-board PC cluster runs the kart control software and interfaces to the steering, throttle and brake actuators along with the cameras and other sensors.
* Sensors on the kart include stereo cameras, rear view cameras, stereo microphones, GPS, lidar (for collision detection) and telemetry for the kart data (speed etc).
* Wireless data link (802.11n) back to the remote PC cluster.
Open Hardware Mobile Manipulator is a mobile manipulator robot designed as open hardware.

This project provides a PCB extension to the Beagleboard, Beagleboard-xm and Pandaboard. While the initial motivation was to simply provide a LCD screen - that concept has grown into a complete, portable development board. The high level features of the extension include:
The project is to build an '''autonomous robot''', which plays football with golf balls on 2m x 3m arena by rules of Robotex . Robotex is an annual open Estonian competition of robotics mainly between three largest informatics related universities: University of Tartu, Tallinn University of Technology and Estonian IT College. The goal of the competition is to raise popularity of exact sciences and computer science. Our team is one of participating teams from University of Tartu.
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.
