We designed and fabricated a 6 legged mobile robot controlled using a BeagleBone Black having 3 Degrees Of Freedom (DOF) per leg. Implemented Inverse Kinematics for movement. Developed a Serial Servo Controller to control 20 servos. Implemented remote control over WiFi networks using SSH protocol and video streaming over WiFi from onboard pan & tilt webcam for surveillance. source

BeagleBone Black Wireless speeds development
On the subject of development boards, it’s not just about the Arduino and Raspberry Pi. The TI-friendly BeagleBone is there in the mix, too, fighting for your curiosity
Which is a good reason to emphasize some developments around the BeagleBone Black single-board PC: there is the latest version and 2 new Capes from the BeagleBone team.
As well as the BeagleBone Black Wireless (down the page), additionally, there are 2 new ‘cape’ add-on boards for the existing BeagleBone Black.
BeagleBone Black Wireless
For starters the BeagleBone Black Wireless, which is essentially a BeagleBone Black with in-built 802.11 b/g/n 2.4GHz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. It’s following in the way of the Raspberry Pi 3 by building in Wi-Fi support to make easier wireless communications.
Its powerplant is the Texas Instruments Sitara AM3358 1GHz ARM Cortex-A8
“Similar to the BeagleBone Black, the wireless preserves HDMI output, serial debug port, PC USB interface, USB 2.0 host, reset and power buttons, and includes 2 more status Led lamps for WiFi and Bluetooth,” writes BeagleBone.org.
“As well kept is the 4GB of built in eMMC memory with Debian Linux preinstalled, that allows the BeagleBone Wireless to boot in approximately Ten secs and have you developing via your web browser in below Five min’s making use of merely a single USB cable.”
You can find the details of the board by expanding the image earlier mentioned, and a data sheet is listed here for download.
Realize that it marks the introduction of the Octavo OSD3358 SiP, including BeagleBone functionality into one BGA package.

Provided that we’re dealing with charge card-dimensions peices of kit, space must be made for additional features. It indicates this particular BeagleBone has lost its 10/100 Ethernet port, creating space for a TI WL1835 WiLink wi-fi interface.
The entire specification:
:: AM335x 1Gigahertz ARM Cortex-A8
:: SGX530 graphics accelerator
:: NEON floating-point accelerator
:: 2x PRU 32-bit 200Megahertz micro-controllers
:: WiLink 1835 802.11b/g/n 2.4GHz WiFi, Bluetooth, plus Bluetooth Smart Module
:: USB client: power, debug and device
:: USB host
:: Micro High-definition multimedia interface output
:: 2x 46 pin headers
:: 512MB DDR3 800MHZ RAM memory
:: 4GB Inserted eMMC Flash with Debian Distribution pre-installed
:: micro sdcard Slot
:: Cloud9 IDE on Node.js w/ BoneScript library
Plus the the two new capes…
Wireless Cape addon
Keep in mind that the new Wireless Cape takes BeagleBone Black over and above the capacities of BeagleBone Black Wireless, points out Steve Bush in his news piece about the release. It is based upon Texas Instruments WiLink 8 (WL1837) industrial dual-band (2.4GHz as well as 5Gigahertz), 2×2 MIMO Wi-Fi, BT and Bluetooth Smart (otherwise known as BT LE), which equally comes with Zigbee and NFC.
The cape comes with Debian Distribution pre-installed and 4GB of built-in eMMC Flash memory. “Developers can be developing employing their web browser in less than Five min’s with the help of just a single USB cable,” said Farnell.
Display cape addon
Be aware there is additionally a Display cape addon available too. It has connections for a 4.3″ colour touch screen an LED backlight and capacitive overlay “for a mobile-like interface”.
The cape focuses on interactive projects, embedded systems and stand-alone set ups.
Cost is about ￡55 for the BeagleBone Black Wireless, ￡35 for the display cape addon and ￡44 for the wireless cape addon .
