Gumstix, Inc. Introduces the $99 RoboVero™ Controller Board

SAN JOSE, Calif. July 19, 2011

The new HubCommander™ interface connects the LPC 1769 to the Overo COM over USB, but also allows them both to be commandeered by an off-board computer.  This lets a roboticist use Linux on an Overo COM for planning, and a RoboVero controller for managing actuators and sensors.  Connecting to the board using either wireless-LAN or a USB cable even allows debugging with JTAG.

Gumstix has released software for programming and running the device:  A USB console provides a command-line interface to a sample set of NXP libraries. The Python Client Library and Arduino™ Compatibility Layer facilitate fast, and powerful, hosted development.  Free and open-source GCC, OpenOCD, and GDB packages compile, flash, and debug Cortex-M3 software from an Overo COM. This means all aspects of software development, whether high- level programs in Python or bare-metal programs for the RoboVero, can occur on-board an un- tethered robot.
