One-armed manipulation robot runs Linux and ROS

Filed under
Linux

Rethink Robotics’s one-armed, Linux- and ROS-based “Sawyer” manipulation robot is smaller, faster, stronger, and more precise than the earlier Baxter.

When MIT spinoff Rethink Robotics announced the $25,000+ Baxter manipulation robot in 2012, it inspired a whole new category of small, relatively low-cost robots for light manufacturing and product assembly. The fixed, two-armed, “collaborative” robot broke new ground in the flexibility of its arms and grippers, as well as the Linux-based Intera software. Intera integrates algorithms that enable the robot to quickly learn new tasks and safely work alongside humans.

Report: Linux takes leading role in IoT-obsessed market

Filed under
Linux

Spurred on by IoT, open source Linux will grow from a 56.2 percent share of embedded device shipments in 2012 to 64.7 percent in 2017, says VDC Research.

Earlier this month, VDC Research released a report on the embedded OS market that says embedded Linux is growing in adoption in a market increasingly obsessed with the Internet of Things. The popularity of open source as well as the need for more advanced wireless and security stacks have helped Linux gain share from Microsoft’s Windows Embedded and from real-time operating systems (RTOSes), according to VDC’s “The Global Market for IoT and Embedded Operating Systems.”

Ubuntu

Variscite released a tiny “VAR-SOM-DUAL” module starting at $46 that runs Android or Linux on a Freescale i.MX6 Dual, and offers onboard WiFi and Bluetooth.

Last November, Variscite announced a smaller version of its VAR-SOM-MX6_V2 computer-on-module called the VAR-SOM-SOLO. Whereas the VAR-SOM-MX6_V2 supports the full range of Freescale’s Cortex-A9 based i.MX6 system-on-chips, including the quad-core version, the similarly SODIMM-interfaced VAR-SOM-SOLO is limited to the single-core, i.MX6 Solo. Now Variscite has released a version that supports the 1GHz, dual-core i.MX6 Dual SoC.

DevOps principles resonate with student Linux program

Filed under

Linux

It was 2010 when the first 600 Linux laptops began rolling out to classrooms in our seven elementary school buildings. We knew we had to think differently about device and patch management. There would be some commonality between elements of our elementary classroom systems, the default XFCE desktop environment, for example. But my team and I also wrestled with techniques to better support instructional technology requirements that varied widely by grade level.

Head 2 Head: Android OS vs. Chrome OS

A large part of Google’s OS success hasn’t been because of its awesomeness. No. Frankly, we think nothing speaks louder than the almighty dollar in this world. But both are “free,” right? So this is tie? Not really. Although Android is technically free since Google doesn’t charge device makers for it, there are costs associated with getting devices “certified.” Oh, yeah, and then there’s Apple and Microsoft, both of which get healthy payouts from device makers through patent lawsuits. Microsoft reportedly makes far more from Android sales than Windows Phone sales. You just generally don’t see the price because it’s abstracted by carriers. Chrome OS, on the other hand, actually is pretty much free. A top-ofthe-line Chromebook is $280, while a top-of-the-line Android phone full retail is usually $600. We’re giving this one to Chrome OS because if it’s generally cheaper for the builder, it’s cheaper for you. Read more
