Embedded Linux moves into High School Robotics - Michael E. Anderson, The PTR Group

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In 2015, the previous RTOS-based PPC robot control system was replaced with a dual-core ARM running embedded Linux with real-time extensions. This opens a great opportunity to begin educating thousands of students in the advantages of embedded Linux as a real-time control platform. In the session, we will describe the new platform and what students are learning about Linux through the FIRST Robotics Competition. There will be a demonstration of the new controller and deploying code to control a small system.
