Accelerating Raspberry Pi 4 applications

Raspberry Pi 4 performance heating measurement

The Raspberry Pi 4 was released and it has finally enough memory to run Chromium effectively. With the addition of an USB 3.0 controller, this little board can now run programs off an external SSD really fast. However, for anything other than a desktop replacement, this upgrade may prove quite expensive relative to the Pi’s price.

Since most of the Pi’s I know live in a secluded place having no monitors or keyboards attached and will execute a single codebase for their entire lifespan,

Using AirSim to develop autonomous driving algorithms

Since we have participated in more traditional robotics competitions than you can imagine, we wanted to do something special for our 100th prize. As I had recently finished the CS231N course, I felt really eager to apply machine learning algorithms to robotic tasks.

The competition

Electromobility is a six-month long autonomous driving competition organised by Continental Automotive in Iasi,

Using Visual Studio Code with STM32CubeMX for ARM Development

NUCLEO F303K8 Programmed from VS Code

Every day, the software world is moving away from traditional software and hardware tools by replacing them with better and faster open source alternatives. Today, the most compelling open source alternatives for ARM embedded development are based on Eclipse.¬†Setting up a perfect workflow for embedded software development with no licensing costs can be a daunting task if you don’t know where to start.
