Robotics and its associated phenomenon are occasionally exaggerating but unfortunately, it is becoming a reality. Various attempts are being taken to encompass robotics in our day to day life, in fact scientist are involved in producing robots containing emotions. Well, in this tutorial of martinkronberg, we are talking about the ways to expand the robotics capabilities of the Intel Edison.
Amid various researches, it has been confirmed that integrating a Robot Operating System (ROS) is necessary to enhance the capability of robotics. While Node.js has numerous modules like Johnny5 and Cylon.js, they are, however, limited when equated to ROS in terms of computer vision processing and sensor integration.
Here, the tutorial initially focuses on the installation instructions for Ubilinux, which can be found here. It is necessary to gain some idea of the packages that are desirable and also of the installation procedure, then the emphasis can be shifted to the process of installing ROS on Yocto. Ubilinux can be installed on the Edsion by following the step here.
You can now begin your tutorial by installing screen and GIT to make life easier. Creating a new user and installing sudo is desirable so that you won’t have to use root to install. It is time to dive into the instructions for installing ROS Indigo on Raspbian here (Debian for Raspberry Pi) with some recommended changes. You can get the complete details from the following link.
