What we're about

The aim of this meetup is bring together embedded designers, learners, doers and makers together to learn, explore and Build. We aim to make the meets practical with lots of hands on workshops on PCB Design, Embedded C Programming, RTOS, MCUs: AVR,PIC,ARM, Sensors and shields.

This meetup group is managed by Bangalore Makespace and Open Source Creativity (http://www.bangaloremakespace.org/). Please join our already active Facebook Community @ https://www.facebook.com/groups/blrmakespace/. We are Asia's largest community of Makers, Hackers and DIYers!

Robot Operating System (ROS) in the Jupyter Notebook

Rapyuta Robotics India

Interactive computing is coming to ROS: The Jupyter Notebook is well-known in data science as a means to explore datasets and create immediate, interactive visualizations. Join us this Saturday 26th October, 2019 from 2pm - 4:30pm to hear two brilliant speakers discuss how they are trying to make the new JupyterLab IDE a more productive environment for ROS Developers! WHAT: FREE MEETUP -- Interactive Computing with ROS WHEN: SATURDAY 26th OCTOBER, 2019 TIME: 2pm - 4:30pm WHERE: Rapyuta Robotics, 100ft Rd, Indiranagar (Landmark: Just above Mi store on 100ft road) Google Maps URL: https://goo.gl/maps/WEW78uMqd9q1mBc67 PRICE: FREE and OPEN TO ALL if you register via this instamojo URL: https://imojo.in/hdtf7g About the Speakers: -------------------------------- Wolf Vollprecht Wolf is an experienced software developer. He finished his Master in Robotics, Systems and Controls at ETH Zurich in 2017 with a specialization in AI and Deep Learning. His current work focuses on making it easier to program and simulate robots by applying the lessons learned from the machine learning and data science community to robotics and combining Jupyter with ROS. Chaitanya Deep Deep is a frontend engineer at Rapyuta Robotics. With a formal education in Mechanical Engineering, he’s obsessed with pixel perfect web interfaces and visualizations. He's recently introduced to robotics and ROS and spent the past few months trying to move ROS visualization tools to the web. MORE DETAILS ABOUT THE MEETUP: The new JupyterLab IDE is being configured to present a more productive environment for ROS developers with specialized widgets: the jupyter-ros package offers RViz-like interactive 3D robot visualizations, as well as tools to make message sending, topic subscribing and live plotting more convenient. During this meetup, the speakers will demonstrate using the JupyterLab as a Cloud Robotics IDE and the Jupyter voilá toolkit to turn notebooks into standalone web applications. The event starts with an introduction to ROS, Jupyter and Jupyter widgets, followed by a demo of a robotic arm controlled through the Jupyter notebook and Rapyuta robotics' open-source work on visualizations in Jupyter notebooks for ROS data NOTES: + This is a FREE meetup that is open to all, organized by Makespace and Open Source Creativity (www.bangaloremakespace.org) and hosted by the Bangalore office of Rapyuta Robotics (https://www.rapyuta-robotics.com/) + Please register (for free) via https://imojo.in/hdtf7g + If you have any questions about the meetup, please contact Kavita Arora via [masked]

Open Discussion on Real Time Operating Systems (RTOS)

A few of us would like to get together to discuss RTOS (Real time operating systems) and how the field of Embedded Systems needs RTOS to address the increasing complexity prevalent in embedded applications and products. A Real Time Operating System (RTOS) is a popular solution in providing a scalable way to manage system complexity. It allows mixed hardware real-time needs along with other embedded software needs. In this discussion we aim to cover the basic features of an RTOS, examples of popular RTOS deployments, when to use RTOS and the pitfalls associated with using an RTOS. Further, we plan to also discuss FreeRTOS - a class of RTOS that is designed to be small enough to run on a microcontroller (although its use is not limited to microcontroller applications) Date and Time of this meetup is not yet decided. Suggestions are welcome!
