The IMU mini-project

Take a look at the first step toward our 96Boards self balancing robot! The IMU mini-project can be used for a variety of other applications, though we will be using it in our soon to be revealed robot.

The series...

If you missed the initial hype, you can read the first of a series of blogs that introduces this robot and the path toward it's eventual existence. Since the release of this introduction blog, one more part has been pushed out, talking about the IMU that will be used for the project.

For those of you who are interested in following along, please keep your eyes on the 96Boards blog page, weekly updates will be made available with links to the 96Boards projects repository. There you will find detailed instructions on how to recreate each step of the project.

This week (August 17, 2017)

OpenHours Episode #66 -  Come, tell the world about Monero and Kovri! Share your Linaro / 96boards experience! In this episode we will discuss the work accomplished by the Kovri / Monero team and community as well as what collaborations are in store for the future.

Monero is a community-driven cryptocurrency designed to deliver always-on fungibility, privacy, and anonymity. Monero’s Kovri I2P Router Project provides users with the ability to run and access nodes that hide their geographic location and IP address. When used in conjunction with Kovri, the origin of Monero transactions is concealed to protect the privacy of the sender while mitigating network monitoring and other attacks. Cross-platform support is made possible by automating builds and testing on Linaro/96boards systems. /u/fluffyponyza, /u/hyc_symas and /u/anonimal_0x914409F1 are confirmed for the call. All are welcome!
