We are looking forward to having the split processing computational power of OMAP4 for developing an add-on module which plugs on to a conventional ultrasonography equipment, analyzing video streaming over the video-out ports/network and providing Radiologists/Sonologists with diagnostic assistance based on computer vision and decision support, displayed over an adjunct interactive video display unit (touch screen LCD panel). The final product will have Image Processing apps working on DSP, base OS functioning on ARM and graphics rendering carried out on SGX.
Gesture/vocal interface to help person suffering from handicap (Blindness, paraplegia, quadriplegia) or elder peoples to keep independence:
For different use schemes:
- To locate: a speaking GPS telling location (street name) on request (button or speech recognition).
- Read and tell (OCR and speech synthesis)
- Speech recognition actuators
- Gesture (eye movement or body movements) or speech commands for actuations
- Status of remote or local sensors of equipped home
- Communicate easily (voip and connected link thru wifi/GSM)
I have come across Wireless Sensor Networks for surveillance or an organization or environmental study etc.
Let us have a wireless sensor network which senses environmental gas composition.
So. i felt it would be a good idea to have access to the network, and get the required information from anywhere in the world. I am aiming at globalizing the network data, so as to have a Wide Area Network established.
I will interface a ZIGBEE transceiver module to the UART PORT of the pandaboard.
The ( transceiver + pandaboard ) will act as a base station to the wireless sensor network.
This is a USB based boot utility for OMAP4 Platform. And allows you to boot OMAP4 platform over USB interface.
Usage: ./usbboot ./aboot.bin u-boot.bin
where: usbboot is the PC side utility listening on USB bus for asic-id from omap
aboot.bin is the second-stage loader getting loaded to internal sram of omap
The second-stage loader loads u-boot.bin to external ddr
(u-boot.bin can be replaced by any binary that one wishes to execute from ddr)
Porting Arch Linux to the PandaBoard, a continuation of what's already done over at PlugApps - we have ported Arch Linux to Marvell's Sheeva platform, and the Pandaboard is a much more powerful platform.
The goal of this project is to port Qi bootloader to the PandaBoard. Qi is a tiny, fast, "no frills" bootloader for ARM architectures. It permits direct loading of Linux kernel without intervention of u-boot. Its aim is to stay at the minimum needed to load and boot Linux kernel (without boot-menus or additional peripheral init).
At the moment there are Qi's versions for Samsung s3c* and omap3 (in a different branch) but there is no omap4 version. This project will try to develop and maintain a working version for omap4.
