More step-by-step guidance on the Qualcomm Robotics RB3
With all the activity in the Qualcomm Robotics RB3 support forum over the last twelve months, we’ve identified a few procedures that deserve more explanation. We wrote out some quick tips for programming and troubleshooting the kit and have assembled them into a set of Qualcomm Robotics RB3 Platform Learning Resources. They cover topics like these:
- Hardware Basics — Physical features of platform
- Setting Up COM Port and Terminal — Communicating with the board
- Setting Up Wi-Fi — Supporting WLAN on the Qualcomm Robotics RB3
- Setting Up ADB over Wi-Fi — Connecting to ADB wirelessly
- Flashing a New, Complete Image (from Thundercomm) onto the Board — For well-developed driver support
- Flashing a New, Complete Image (from Linaro) onto the Board — For Debian
- How to Install Docker on the Qualcomm Robotics RB3 development platform — To pull the ROS image from a container
Those should help you get more out of the Qualcomm Robotics RB3 development kit, which is based on the Qualcomm® SDA845 SoC and is compliant with the 96Boards open hardware specification.
Want to see what your fellow developers are building with the Qualcomm Robotics RB3 kit? In our Projects gallery you’ll find a half-dozen applications in areas like audio, Bluetooth, depth mapping, Amazon Web Services and even elder care. Help yourself to the starter code and build it into your own apps.
