Embedded Linux Case Study: The Flying Penguin

Christopher Grill, Crown Computers

Track: Linux
Date: Friday, July 27
Time: 4:30pm - 5:15pm
Location: Harbor Island I

The talk will start with a brief overview of Linux in an embedded environment. This will lead into a description of the Flying Penguin project. The Flying Penguin Project is actually my entry in a contest sponsored by Embedded Linux Journal and Tri-M Systems. The contest is to use the new Machz104 boards from Tri-M for an interesting embedded Linux application.

The Flying Penguin is a radio-controlled airplane that is fitted with the MachZ104 computer, and an Ashtech G8 GPS receiver. This is a work in progress and will be completed around the time of the OS conference. The talk will be given from a problems solved standpoint, specifically problems solved via open source solutions.
