This free webcast provides both motivation and direction that begins with the unpacking of the BeagleBone Black, the brain of the system, and continues all the way through adding hardware to provide a fully functional, walking, talking, listening, seeing robot. We'll also touch on advanced topics, such as how to communicate with your robots wirelessly and how to add GPS.
Then, you'll learn how to integrate all of this functionality so that you can construct impressive robotics projects that can roll, walk, sail, fly, and explore under the water.
