Torizon industrial Linux software platform from Toradex

Posted by Charbax – June 2, 2019

At Embedded World 2019, Toradex shows off its brand new Linux Platform called Torizon, for the first time. Torizon is an open source project based on the Yocto Project, it comes free with Toradex System on Modules (SoMs) including NXP i.MX 6, 7 and 8 SoCs. Torizon is ideal for developers who like to take advantage of the extensive Linux ecosystem, but don’t like to spend time on low-level Linux development. Torizon is built for the requirements of modern industrial embedded/IoT applications in mind. It uses Docker for software containerization, features an Automotive Grade Remote Update Client, supports real-time and has built-in security features. In the video, Samuel, CEO of Toradex, shows the integration with Visual Studio and highlights how it simplifies life for those moving from the Windows and Windows Embedded Compact ecosystem. In the second demo, you can see Debian running in Docker Containers. The last demo shows off the safe and secure over-the-air (OTA) updates and a possible backend to manage a fleet of devices. The update client is Uptane-compatible.

Cluster Imaging Automotive Depth Camera Mapping Technology

Posted by Charbax – April 28, 2019

Cluster Imaging makes all images better with superior depth map processing. Depth maps are a next-generation foundation technology enabling accurate image element isolation and visual space identification. Depth information will enable new frontiers in automotive and industrial markets.

Autonomous driving systems have to date relied on LIDAR- and RADARbased depth sensing. These technologies suffer from limited resolution, no integrated colour sensing, high costs, bulky specially-sourced hardware, and poor performance in rain.

Cluster Imaging’s depth camera modules produce full-colour video plus an embedded high-resolution depth map suitable for accurate image recognition. The modules are manufactured using standard, low-cost image sensors. They can be used standalone or as a complement to LIDAR/RADAR.

Qt with Toradex and KDAB at Embedded World 2019

Posted by Charbax – April 17, 2019

Qt’s (https://qt.io) partnership with Toradex (https://toradex.com) makes the deployment of Qt extremely easy, allowing deployment to a device from day one. The integration is realized with the Toradex Easy Installer (https://www.toradex.com/tools-libraries/toradex-easy-installer). KDAB (https://www.kdab.com/) shows that a Qt Touch UI can run smoothly even on hardware without a GPU, in this case a Toradex Colibri System on Module featuring a NXP i.MX 6ULL. Qt is a very popular C++ Framework for embedded devices, talking about the history of Qt and Qtopia an old application platform for phones and handhelds such as the Archos PMA430 which I filmed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qoBHeXnAVhY Qt 3D Studio is shown on a Toradex SoM with the high end NXP i.MX8 QuadMax. In the booth walk with Santtu, you can see demos such as Qt on microcontrollers and get some insight into the new developer experience. In the KDAB area, you will see KUEAS a tool which simplifies the workflow for 3D content and GammaRay for debugging. KDAB is a partner of Qt and Toradex and can help with application development.

The Zephyr Project at Embedded World 2019

Posted by Charbax – March 29, 2019

The Zephyr Project joins some 1,000 exhibitors at Embedded World in Nurnberg, Germany, with Zephyr Project members including Antmicro, Foundries.io, Intel, Nordic Semiconductor, NXP and SiFive, with offer interactive IoT demos powered by the Zephyr RTOS, which supports multiple hardware architectures and is built with safety and security in mind.

The Antmicro and Renode demo showcases how the open source Renode simulation framework that can be used to test multi-node Zephyr setups, including ARM and RISC-V based platforms. Using human-readable scripts and configuration, Renode allows you to easily create complex CI installations, enabling better testability of real products. You will see how to test production-ready code without the hassle of connecting multiple pieces of hardware together against corner-case conditions unachievable in testing rigs.

NXP i.MX 6SoloX (UDOO Neo) with RPMsg Protocol, a Multicore demo with Linux running on A9, Zephyr running on M4 – This demonstration shows how to leverage asymmetric co-processors of modern SoCs on the example of i.MX6SoloX and Udoo Neo board. The embedded Cortex-M4 core is running Zephyr RTOS which implements various low speed serial peripherals (UART, SPI, I2C) in software using GPIO. Cortex-M4 communicates with the embedded Cortex-A9 core running Linux Kernel using the RPMsg protocol. On the Linux side a kernel module is used to present implemented serial peripherals to the user space as regular serial, SPI or I2C interface (e.g. /dev/ttySx). The benefits of such approach consist in the possibility of extending existing set of peripherals without any additional hardware cost and the possibility to place selected peripheral at virtually any available GPIO pin. Thanks to exporting the interfaces to the user space, it can be accessed for example by a Python script.
