OMAP4 V4L2 Camera

This project aims to add support for a v4l2 compliant driver for driving the OMAP4 Imaging SubSystem (ISS).

Main idea is to provide a upstreamable software support for CSI-2 compatible sensors hooked into the OMAP4 ISS CSI-2 Rx.

Expected audience ins the open source community, trying to work with a cheap camera solution using their Pandaboards, for supporting more easily imaging projects without involving much SW layers, or overall using a more complex interprocessor solution with ISS drivers in Cortex-M3 cores.

The code has been currently tested in:

Automatically Tuned Linear Algebra Software (ATLAS)

The ATLAS (Automatically Tuned Linear Algebra Software) project is an ongoing research effort focusing on applying empirical techniques in order to provide portable performance. At present, it provides C and Fortran77 interfaces to a portably efficient BLAS implementation, as well as a few routines from LAPACK.

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
Multitouch Capability
QWERTY stationary monochrome trackpad backlight
(Optional features could include, compass, gyro, and a VGA camera)

TiroKart: the Total Immersion Remotely Operated Go-Kart

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.

Small autonomous football robot

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.

The objective of this project is to enable/run knoppix-adriane Linux Operating System on PandaBoard.
Adriane knoppix is a debian based linux operating system,with accellerated boot procedure: Independently from the usual SysV bootscripts, multiple tasks of system initialization are run in parallel, so that interactive desktops are reached very fast.

What's Adriane ?

Social Media Player

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
