Introducing sysfs: GPIO

In this first article of the group, I’m going to introduce the sysfs that uses any Linux-based system. The reason of beginning with this topic is that the sysfs will be used in almost all tutorials of this site, since it will be used directly or indirectly in order to use sensors, modules and any … Read more Introducing sysfs: GPIO

Get it moving with PWM!

This time, we’ll know how to get our devices in motion using servos and motors. This is easy to control them thanks to the PWM signals of the Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone and many other single-board computers and micro-controllers. Additionally we’ll see how to control the speed and direction of wheel motors using the DRV8835 Dual … Read more Get it moving with PWM!

GPIO using sysfs

The sysfs is the virtual data system of Linux’s kernel. It exports features of several kernel subsystems , hardware and related device drivers, through pseudo-files. Furthermore. Anyone can use it from any programming language as any other file system. Thus it’s very easy to use the sysfs for a basic communication  with external devices. As … Read more GPIO using sysfs

Are the Single-board Computers the Next IT Revolution?

We are going give an overview to several open-source projects on the IoT and robotics field. Furthermore, we can discuss about possible projects we can develop together.

Bot1 needs developers

Are you an enthusiast of programming robots? Do you like open-source projects? In collaboration with the Ideenlabor creativity company, the IRBG will develop a new robotic product shortly. This product will use our open-source robotic system Bot1 to implement its system functionality. Therefore, this is an opportunity to impulse and improve our robotic system. Have … Read more Bot1 needs developers

Are you interested in? There are many things where you can collaborate!

We’ll need people writing some articles about IoT or robotic (hardware or software) topics. Short articles is enough and any ideas are welcomed.

You can collaborate with the group’s project. This is a base robotic system, intended to learn and experiment with it, but with the intention of it becomes into a functional system in the real world in the future. We are already in a early phase of the development.

Time to time we meet to do some workshops and learn about some topic and do a quick project as exercise.

Everybody are welcomed to collaborate and share interests, knowledge and ideas.
