FreeBSD Robot

While most of our featured projects are Teensy-centric, occasionally we play a supporting role to another board, and that’s OK! There’s nothing wrong with being Jamie Lee Curtis to another board’s Michelle Yeoh, as is the case in Hackaday user Fabio Balzano’s FreeBSD Robot + Teensy 3.1.

The bulk of the bot’s brains come from a Beaglebone Black running FreeBSD. A web-based GUI enables control and video streaming over Wi-Fi, while the Teensy acts as a speed control plus drives the steering servo via PWM. Find out more on the project’s Hackaday page.
