"Hello Curt If you look on the table above you can see that UART2 is not the default mapping, it is SPI0. You need to configure PINS in order to get Uart2 exposed. Loo at the way we remap…"

"Hi Patrick, Hopefully you don't mind me asking a pocketbeagle question?  Are you using /dev/ttyS2 in your system?  I have ttyS4 working great on my pocketbeagle, but I've been trying all day to get ttyS2 to talk with zero…"

"Hello Curt PWM, depending on how you map the Pocket , take alook at the config pin file and you will everything we are exposing: https://github.com/PocketPilot/PocketPilot/blob/master/config/pocketpilot_pin.cfg For sensors, if you look at my…"

"Hi Patrick, ok I do have a couple questions.  Sorry if any of this is stated obviously and I missed it.  How many PWM outputs can the pocketpilot support?  I see 4 obviously for quad copter use, but can you do more than that? …"

"Hello Mateusz, Yes I setted the distance to 1 Meter so I can ''pratcice'' in my garage. The Tower is a great product and the integration as a PROXIMITY driver within ArduPilot makes it even more performant. The idea behind the…"

"Impressive! Looks like you had some very close calls, probably due to sensor range. At Terabee we were doing lots of indoor flight experiments with TeraRanger Tower. We will try to share same results in the following days, maybe we can exchange…"

"Yup.  I *really* like the concept of the PRU's, but have chosen an easier path to follow by adding my own easy-to-program external processor.  I use the teensy to handle all the interrupts and hard real time chores.  This…"

"Curt, Actually the new uboot config-pin method is pretty close to PINS in the Arduino IDE. Everything is reference to the Cape Universal that expose an standard gpio mapping on the BeagleBones. Here is the map for the PocketBeagle: Just like an…"

"the pru is not linux. ist just a co-processor for the sitara. offloading interrupts from the linux kernel is actually a good thing. we will see where the road ends. but at least you have to show a video when your work is getting up in the air ;-)"
