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:
LCD with touch screen
User push buttons including power on/off
Battery, battery charger and battery fuel gauge support
Full size SD card socket
Extension header with GPIOs and I2C bus that are either 3.3V or 5V based.
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.
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
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.
