iWave offers i.MX6 Single Board Computer Based Learning Platform
Press release date: April 22, 2014
The ALP comprises of i.MX6 Pico ITX Single Board Computer and a peripheral daughter card which is meant to enable University students to evaluate several new displays, sensors, communication and I/O interfaces, hence introducing them to a rich and wide world of Embedded Systems which is indeed a unique blend of Academic and Industrial utility. Truly this product is meant to redefine iWave’s slogan “Embedding Intelligence.”
Now the question arises “Why is there a need of this kind of platform for graduate students at the academic level?” This platform will ensures sufficient number of educated future engineers capable of designing complex systems and maintaining a leadership in the area of embedded systems, thereby ensuring its strongholds in automotive, avionics, industrial automation, mobile communications, telecoms and medical systems. This platform will also guarantee technological development of the educational approach in the field of embedded systems.
Project title: “Automated Inspection System” This project can be carried out by using following features of the ALP
1. Motor interface
2. Camera interface
3. Image processing capabilities of the i.MX6 processor
Project Description – In industries conveyer belts are used as inspection system aims to remove or isolate the defect pieces. When things are moving on the conveyer belt, Image is taken of each product for inspection. The ALP’s motor interface can be interfaced with the motor which driving the conveyer belt. The camera connected to the ALP can capture the images of the products going on the conveyer belt and send it to the CPU for identifying the defect pieces.
This is one possible project which can be carried out in ALP. In fact there are numerous projects which can be carried out. It can be a weather forecasting system, vibration monitoring system, surveillance system, coordinate locating system, personalized audio system, energy efficient system, touch controlled system, motor control system, lighting system, applications involving displays, current sensing meter, digital time display meter etc. Finally it’s all up to you what you make of the ALP.
