PedX is a device for families worried about crossing the street safely with small kids. Attached to a stroller, PedX alerts vehicles to your presence via a bright LED, horn & one-touch camera for taking photos of bad drivers.
The robotics revolution has already begun. You can even buy drones and robotic devices at local retail stores. Unfortunately, it has been too hard to develop code for robots, and nearly impossible to create solutions that integrate multiple different kind of devices.
Modern technology used in wearable and mobile electronics is accessible to Makers to build and create via the Beagle Bone boards. This provides demonstrations of how makers have leveraged these advances in wearable projects.
The solrmatic takes the guesswork out of solar cooking. Put your own solar cooker on the rotator, put the temperature probes in the oven and food, select your presets and let the solrmatic do the rest. Enjoy perfect food!
This presentation is a rapid-fire tour of how people are building robots today using BeagleBone Black. It covers controlling your bot from a web page including a game controller and streaming video and audio from your bot, range finding and collision sensing, determining motion and orientation, determining amount of wheel rotation, network connectivity, web API integration and vision processing.
This presentation demonstrates a technique for creating web interfaces on the BeagleBone Black. These web interfaces allow you to control electronics, and display sensor readings for hardware attached to the BeagleBone Black's GPIO connectors.
Modular hardware enables makers to prove out ideas and concepts rapidly. This allows new ideas to come to fruition more quickly, enabling makers to push the envelope by focusing on differentiation and innovation, rather than being bogged down by low-level bits and bytes. In addition, open source hardware creates a friendly community where makers and developers can collaborate and re-use tried and true solutions. No need to re-invent the wheel! This panel will provide valuable insights, trends, and key advantages so Makers can leverage such ecosystems for rapid prototyping. In addition, several engaging demos will be shown.
Sensors can track temperature, light, gases, presence in your home. You can build a wireless sensor network using Raspberry Pi/Beaglebone Black, xBee, Linux, and Python. Come see our DIY thermostat project.
