Robot Development Kit using Hardkernel ODROID-C1+, VU7 display, ODROID-XU4

Posted by Charbax – December 10, 2015

Bo Lechnowsky of ameriDroid.com shows the fully-programmable robot kit based on the ODROID-C1+ and controllable through the web. We then moved on to an 8-inch tablet kit for the ODROID-C1+ which includes case, multi-touch screen and battery for less than $100 due to be available this December. After this, we looked at a new 7-inch tablet-style multi-touch display from ODROID called the VU7 that allows attaching an ODROID-C1+ to the backside providing an expandable tablet-like solution for low cost. The ODROID-XU4 was discussed, an Exynos-5422 octa-core ARM Cortex-A15 at 2.0GHz and ARM Cortex-A7 at 1.4GHz ARM board with 2GB LPDDR3 on-board, USB3.0/2.0 ports and gigabit Ethernet along with removable eMMC and microSD storage options. An ODROID-C1+ was shown which is a low-cost but powerful AmLogic S805 quad-core ARM Cortex-A5 at 1.5GHz ARM board with 1GB LPDDR3 on-board with USB2.0 ports and gigabit Ethernet, also with the removable eMMC/microSD storage options. We then moved on to a display from a partner company, Withrobot.com, that showed real-time bar- and QR-code reading from three cameras simultanously through one USB3.0 port on an ODROID-XU4 and a 5MP standalone USB camera processed by OpenCV on an ODROID-XU4. In the background was an ODROID-C1+ with a HiFi Shield and a VU7 streaming high-quality audio to a stereo running Rune Audio. Volumio is also available for this platform. Both distributions are controllable by a smartphone or tablet from anywhere.
