Today I received the confirmation by email that MyzhzrBot has been chosen to partecipate to the italian issue of the iNemo challenge.
In a few days I will receive my iNemo Discovery M1 board. I received the board by the postman just when I was writing this post as you can see by the photos.
The Discovery-M1 helps to discover the INEMO-M1 performance features and to facilitate its evaluation. The INEMO-M1 is the smallest 9-axis system-on-board (SoB) of the iNEMO module family; it integrates multiple ST sensors with a powerful computational core: a 6-axis geomagnetic module, a 3-axis gyroscope and an ARM Cortex™ M3 32-bit MCU.
The Discovery-M1 based on the INEMO-M1, and including a pressure sensor LPS331AP, represents a complete 10-DoF open platform able to provide fast inertial application development using MEMS sensors and the STM32. The pinout of the two connectors gives a complete set of communication interfaces in a very small size, making the Discovery-M1 a flexible solution for effortless orientation estimation embedded applications.
For the challenge I will try to integrate iNemo-M1 into ROS to perform SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) on MyzharBot using Asus Xtion Pro Live as 3D Visual Sensor.
