Inertial Measurement Units, or IMUs, are ubiquitous in robotics applications but are also useful for any project in which orientation information or motion detection is
This past August, NetBurner returned to the Microchip Technologies Masters Conference in Phoenix, Arizona to teach a hands-on course presented by our CTO and Sr.
If you need to speed up computations on your NetBurner module but don’t know where to start, you’re in the right place. During my intern project developing a 1/8-scale autonomous vehicle, I hit a brick wall when computationally intensive tasks started to fail. Instead of accepting that I had reached the limit of the board’s performance, I decided to buckle down and managed to decrease the runtime of computationally intensive tasks by an order of magnitude. This article will discuss the simplest things we can do to measure and improve performance. The provided code is designed to run on a NetBurner module but techniques discussed can be applied to any embedded development project.
The saying goes that a picture is worth a thousand words. By that reasoning, a web-based 3D scene complete with models, textures, lighting, and animations must be worth at least a million. It can’t be denied that data visualization can be extremely beneficial when it comes to understanding complex and frequently multi-dimensional data-sets. What better place to take advantage of these informative and rich 3D or 2D visualizations than in the field of embedded systems? It is a realm where sensors and measurements abound, and analyzing the data flow coming from them can often feel like taking a drink from a firehose. If you are still displaying your data from CSV files or boring tables, this tutorial will open your eyes to some truly amazing possibilities!
This post provides a start to finish description of how to go from opening your first NetBurner Network Development Kit (NNDK) box to getting your first application running. While every NetBurner kit comes with a “Quick Start Guide”, we’ve been asked on occasion to provide a more visual and detailed step by step guide and this is it!
