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.
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.
making usefull and low-cost, but full operating Android/Ubuntu tablet for internet browsing, gaming and almost everything you can imagine.
The goal of this project is to develop and build an expansion board for the PandaBoard based on FPGA technology.
An FPGA allows to build a very flexible expansion for an ARM based SoC. It's high count of programmable I/O pins combined with the option to create custom hardware blocks inside the configurable logic offer numerous possibilities.
A detailled project description will be added as soon as possible.
We're building an open source Android based Tablet E-Reader hybrid using the Pixel Qi adaptive screen with a 3M capacitive touch layer.
