How To Upgrade Lego's Ev3 Brick Alongside A Beaglebone Dark That Uses Arduino Sensors!

If yous convey ever wanted to upgrade the Brain as well as Sensors of your LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robotics, yous tin at i time create this real easily alongside the EVB processing platform, which allows yous to purpose Arduino analog sensors (and fifty-fifty solve Rubik's cube!). Best of all, the EVB is opened upwards source (100% LEGO compatible) as well as supports LEGO parts as well as LEGO software past times combining the processing ability of the Beaglebone Black Linux microcomputer addition the EV3 architecture on GitHub.

EVB provides crazy amounts of processing ability past times upgrading LEGO Mindstorm EV3's ARM9 300MHz processor to BeagleBone Black's ARM Cortex-A8 1GHz. Not exclusively yous become a faster processor alongside the Beaglebone Black merely likewise a larger RAM (from 64MB to 512MB increase) as well as Flash retentivity that volition let yous to increment the master Mindstorms EV3 16MB Flash to fifty-fifty larger flash retentivity depending on the Micro SD card.

With EVB yous likewise become the master Mindstorms EV3 Linux 2.6 operating system updated to Linux 3.12. The display is likewise improved alongside a larger 200 x 176 True Color display (LEGO Mindstorms EV3 has a monochrome 178 x 128).

The EVB supports all sensors of EV3 though features fifty-fifty to a greater extent than sensors (that the Mindstorm EV3 tin use) such equally a low-cal sensor, pressure/altitude sensor, gesture sensor, IR receiver, temperature as well as humidity sensor, equally good equally an ADC Module that allows yous to use all the Arduino analog sensors on the EVB or EV3.

The gesture sensor is definitively i of my favorite features of the EVB, non exclusively because it tin let on paw gestures merely likewise because it tin likewise let on proximity as well as mensurate the RGB colouring value; thence it can Rubik's cube.

EVB is possible cheers to LEGO releasing Mindstorms EV3 source code nether an opened upwards source license on GitHub.
