Attempting to build a municipal wireless mesh for a WISP in Northern Utah utilising the PandaBoard ES for each gateway and node with the included WLAN chip connected to a 2.4GHz microwave omnidirectional antenna and the new Broadcom 802.11ac chip attached to the board and a 5GHz microwave omnidirectional antenna.
Each node with antennas and second WLAN chip should cost less than $600 and all software will be open source with Ubuntu Server and WING for Linux.
We are currently developing the proof of concept Gateway on our first PandaBoard.
Iam making a two wheel self-balancing robot that will balance it self on two wheels through different sensors. My central and main controller will be the PANDA BOARD ES and further the robot will be controlled through Wi-fi interface. and their will also be some sensors for the detection of obstacle.
These are the main things which i am doing by using PANDA BOARD ES
I am building a wearable computer,that will be optimized for use in an educational,especially high school,enviroment.It will serve to augment the student's memory,with a camera and a mike,as well as the student's knowledge,through encyclopedias an the internet.It will include a head mounted display,easy to use keyboard an possibly internet access.
MINIX 3 is a project to create a small, highly reliable and functional Unix-like operating system.
This OS is extremely small, with the part that runs in kernel mode under 6000 lines of executable code.
Project Goal:The goal here is to port Minix3 to pandaboard and developing all necessary drivers and make all the peripherals working.
Reflex is a suite of compiler and runtime support for applications to leverage the M3 (ducati) cores on OMAP4.
Low-power processors that are encompassed in an extremely asymmetric architecture promise very high energy-efficiency to frequent, simple computational tasks, most notably sensing. However, programming such an architecture is difficult, especially to numerous third-party developers.
