Building a Remote Control Robot with Automotive Grade Linux

177 Aufrufe

Veröffentlicht am

Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) is a leading embedded Linux distribution for the automotive industry and soon it will debut on the 2018 Toyota Camry. Out of the box AGL offers reliable open source solutions for graphics, connectivity, security and software over the air updates. Could other industries benefit from these features?

In a quest to discover if AGL is suitable for Internet of Things (IoT) outside the automotive industry, this presentation will reveal a practical experiment of using AGL in robotics. Attendees will learn the exact steps for building a do it yourself (DIY) robot based on Raspberry Pi 3 with off-the-shelf components. The talk will provide guidelines for integration of additional software, sensors and other peripheral hardware device in a headless AGL profile.
