UC San Diego Professor Thomas Bewley discusses his Segway-like educational robotics kit, eduMIP, based on the BeagleBone Blue at Linaro Connect Vancouver 2018. This inexpensive kit (available online, for $128, at Renaissance Robotics https://www.renaissancerobotics.com/eduMIP.html) is used in his Embedded Control & Robotics course at UCSD, which Prof Bewley is currently working on taking online as a MOOC. It is also beginning to be used by a community of researchers and educators at other universities around the world. In this video, Prof Bewley also introduces his early efforts in developing new (and, significantly higher-power) motor-control daughterboards in the 96boards and Raspberry Pi formats. He also discusses eduMIP v.2 and some other advanced prototypes in his lab, as well as the Robot Control (RC) software library that drives this hardware, and will ultimately enable easy porting of control codes across the BeagleBone, Raspberry Pi, and 96boards linux-based product lines, in addition to deployment onto very-low-cost custom targets based on Cortex M based processors running an RTOS. His ultimate goal with this ambitious effort is to facilitate a much more seamless pathway from lab prototype to commercial product.
RoseFinch7100 has passed the certification of China Mobile and China Telecom, and it has been widely deployed in gas meters, household appliances, municipal management (parking, manhole cover, street lamp, environmental monitoring) and other industries.
The demonstration will show the RoseFinch7100 running the Zephyr RTOS with integrated IP/TCP/UDP/COAP/MQTT/LWM2M protocols, IoT Cloud Engine and FOTA services. Sanechips has worked closely with the Linaro IoT and Embedded (LITE) group to enable upstream Zephyr support for the chip. The Sanechips Development Environment (SDE), based on OpenOCD (Open On-Chip Debugger) and Eclipse, will also be demonstrated.
Produced on a 55nm ultra low power technology process, the RoseFinch7100 is specifically designed for intensive low power IoT applications, such as cellular LPWA (low power wide area). The chip integrates the low power/high performance CEVA-X1 DSP IP for baseband and offers low sleep current of 2uA at 2V, which can provide an extended battery life. It also offers Cloud-Chip Global Security based on Trusted Zone, up to 30 GPIOs and all R14 Frequency Bands, and no need for an external MCU as the RoseFinch7100 can provide strong connectivity for most LPWA applications independently.
At the Linaro Connect, Sahaj Sarup, Applications Engineer at 96Boards, based on the IoT Edition Carbon Development Board powered by the STMicroelectronics STM32F401RE ARM Cortex-M4 running Zephyr. There are 6 ultrasonic sensors preventing it from bumping into things, 4 IR sensors preventing it from falling down, there are LED's also representing the distance to the objects on each side of the self-driving rover.
To be honest, I watched 1 video about the new iPhone, as I can see it's pretty much still a hugely overpriced shitty notch phone. Good job from the Trillion dollar fruit gadgets company. (I mean of course their new 7nm ARM processor surely is interesting..) The Gemini PDA is my daily driver phone, I use my Gemini PDA every day as my main phone for over 6 months now (since I filmed this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTU28QgYHdQ&t=203s ), Gemini PDA is amazing for me to be productive, to be able to type texts with my phone nearly as fast as I would on a laptop, and here I also show a properly great value $150 Vernee Mix 2 phone available at around $150 here https://www.gearbest.com/cell-phones/pp_906061.html?wid=1527929 (thank you Gearbest for sending me this one!) There are some newer Bezel-less phones that have been released since, some perhaps slightly lighter, with better GPS positioning accuracy, better camera and brighter display. Check back later for more videos on these.
