Unconference Session 2: Electronics

Discussion around Raspberry Pi and Sangaboard

Talked a lot about Raspberry Pi - it would be nice to support BeagleBone or other boards (Jetson Nano), decoupling software from hardware. @r.w.bowman talked about work to modularise the software - it’s now more configurable but we need to define interfaces between the modules, e.g. what are the required functions for the camera?

Sangaboard: what about using a more powerful microcontroller? How about using NEMA steppers, would that let us use more powerful/off the shelf motor drivers?
