Beaglebone Blue

(Robby ) #1

Has anyone tried this board, I am very interested in learning more about getting this board working.
Thank You

We don’t support it, what are you interested in doing with it?

I teach High School, I have a few students looking to build a ROV. I have five of the boards, and was looking for advice on using it for this application. Sorry for wasting your time.

Not by a long stretch! It depends on what you want to accomplish, and in what amount of time.

The other ardupilot vehicles have support for the board, we might be able to add ArduSub support also.

Thank you!
I think the ultimate goal would be for them to make a an ROV to compete at the mate competition. As far as time frame we do not have one, as we ( them and I) are still learning the BBB.

Thank you so much,

I suppose it would make more sense to invest in a pixhawk, I was just trying to use what we have.

It also depends on what you want to focus on with the students. If you want something that is already made, and has more to do with reading documentation, and plugging together /building the system and getting into the water, then ArduSub + pixhawk is a good choice.

If you want to focus more on the programming side of things or linux/sbcs, then the BBB will work fine, but you will have to do more of the system design and implementation.
