In-depth instruction and practical techniques for buildingwith the BeagleBone embedded Linux platform

Exploring BeagleBone is a hands-on guide to bringinggadgets, gizmos, and robots to life using the popular BeagleBoneembedded Linux platform. Comprehensive content and deep detailprovide more than just a BeagleBone instructionmanual--you'll also learn the underlying engineeringtechniques that will allow you to create your own projects. Thebook begins with a foundational primer on essential skills, andthen gradually moves into communication, control, and advancedapplications using C/C++, allowing you to learn at your own pace.In addition, the book's companion website featuresinstructional videos, source code, discussion forums, and more, toensure that you have everything you need.

The BeagleBone's small size, high performance, low cost, and extreme adaptability have made it a favorite developmentplatform, and the Linux software base allows for complex yetflexible functionality. The BeagleBone has applications in smartbuildings, robot control, environmental sensing, to name a few;and, expansion boards and peripherals dramatically increase thepossibilities. Exploring BeagleBone provides areader-friendly guide to the device, including a crash coursein computer engineering. While following step by step, you can:

  • Get up to speed on embedded Linux, electronics, andprogramming
  • Master interfacing electronic circuits, buses and modules, withpractical examples
  • Explore the Internet-connected BeagleBone and the BeagleBonewith a display
  • Apply the BeagleBone to sensing applications, including videoand sound
  • Explore the BeagleBone's Programmable Real-TimeControllers

Hands-on learning helps ensure that your new skills stay withyou, allowing you to design with electronics, modules, orperipherals even beyond the BeagleBone. Insightful guidance andonline peer support help you transition from beginner to expert asyou master the techniques presented in Exploring BeagleBone, the practical handbook for the popular computing platform.
