Welcome to BeagleBoard contest #1. This contest is about give-away one BeagleBoard Rev C1 to winner and another to the runner-up. Judges will determine criteria and won't be eligible for winning the contest. Final submission required by January 5, 2009. (Final date to be approved by judges.)
BeagleBoard revision C1 will have working USB HOST (EHCI) and newest OMAP3 silicon revision. By this contest you will get it ~2 month before this revision is publically available by DigiKey (~March 2009).
Here are some ideas which projects would be nice to be done by this contest. But don't hesitate to add your cool project below even if it doesn't match any of these ideas:
- EHCI support
- Stable musb
- ISOCH support
- High-speed USB TV tuner support
- Hot-plug support for OTG (host and client)
- USB Digital TV tuner (either ATSC or DVB-T)
- Hauppauge HVR950 suggested as reference
- Projection TV coupled with the Pico
- Consumer IR remote control via LIRC
- Audio record
- Latest kernel version
- USB camera support
- gspca driver - need to validate with multiple cameras
- UVC driver
- USB support in u-boot
- Fixing bugs listed on code.google.com
Please add here your project you like to participate at this contest. Please add the project to beagleboard.org projects, too. If you add a new project here, please append it at the end of list below. Then we can rely on numbering if talking about projects (e.g. "I like project 3.1").
- Title: support beagle board emulation in qemu
- beagleboard.org project: qemu-omap3
- Short project description: Qemu-omap3 is an opensource project which adds omap3 related devices emulation into qemu. Beagle board is the primary devices to emulate.
- Homepage: qemu omap3 emulation support
- Expected results:
- booting linux kernel and rootfs from nand and mmc image
- Wiki page how to run qemu-omap3 for beagle board
- Title: develop open source software to use BeagleBoard as a handheld GPS receiver
- beagleboard.org project: none yet
- Short project description: openGPS is a project to use a basic processing platform with open source software to develop a handheld GPS receiver. Using any of a number of available map data bases, such as Open Street Maps, a handheld GPS receiver would provide new capabilities that are not currently found in commercial receivers. In addition it would provide a platform for a number of customizations and expansion of capabilites.
- Homepage: none yet
- Expected results:
- development of a display app with moving map capabilities
- development of a user interface for handheld apps
- integration with suitable LCD display
- interface to map files on SD card
- Wiki page on GPS receiver functions and features
