Biostar Racing P1: from simple to complex

Biostar Racing P1: from simple to complexAt the miniature computer of type Biostar Racing P1 each megahertz is on the account. This is dictated by the compactness and low energy consumption. The processor is Intel Atom x5-Z8350 here in its place. And to expect from him special performance records are not necessary. Especially, taking into account the failure characteristics of by writing L1-level cache.
 
 
Nevertheless, this "no longer a stick, but not a laptop" of its consumer will still find. The key to this is the four cores of a simple, seemingly CPU. Is it worth putting their hopes on them? ...

Go compiler: the language of the SSA optimization rules

Go compiler: the language of the SSA optimization rules
 
In the compiler gc for the description of Static Single Assignment (SSA) optimization rules uses a special Lisp-like object-oriented language ( DSL ).
 

I propose to analyze the main elements of this language, its features and limitations.
 
As an exercise, let's add a compiler to Go that generates an instruction that it did not generate before, optimizing the expression a * b + c .

So I, after the first successful run of the autotest locally, decided to immediately configure the launch in TeamCity.
 
 
I note that we do not have any expertise in remote testing of Android tests, so we had to assiduously google, but I did not find deployed guides either. Therefore, I decided to burn this manual.
 
android sdk tools (Command line tools only) and unpack it into ...

Hardware encoding of the video stream on the Logitech C920 camera and sending it to ROS via wifi with a delay of less than 0.2 seconds

Hardware encoding of the video stream on the Logitech C920 camera and sending it to ROS via wifi with a delay of less than 0.2 seconds
 
In this manual, we will send the hardware-encoded h264 video stream of the Logitech C920 camera transferred from BeagleBone Blue via wifi network to the laptop, and then take it to the ROS gscam node and search and recognize the images of tarot cards and the bottle of ketchup along the path of the EduMIP robot.
