So as I mentioned, I was planning to make two projects. As the first one took a long time, I just had a couple of days to finish this one and publish it. Unfortunately, it didn't work due to couple of reasons: Initial plan was to write some sort of wrapper to rtl_adsb and display an offline map as popular dump1090 uses Google Maps API and needs Internet connection. I was running out of time so decided to use dump1090 instead. So map displaying needs a WiFi connection. Small screen meant that I ...
In this post I'll be talking about how to set another computer to act as a server between Beaglebone Black and Internet. Initially I was planning to use ffmpeg and ffserver but after a week of banging my head against the wall, I couldn't make it work. It would've been nice as I was planning to pipe the stream coming from netcat to ffmpeg so that lets say if I have two Beaglebone Blacks with their own RTL dongles with different ports, I could've streamed both radio stations from the same streamin ...
In this post, I'll be talking about three things in general: Getting a new image, updating it and fixing things that are broken. Installing RTL-SDR which will be used for receiving FM transmissions and others. Testing the installation by streaming raw audio over the network.   System Setup I spent around a week playing around with the components, got myself a micro HDMI to HDMI adapter and basically tried to see what the system can do. I like starting projects with a brand new OS so that ...

I also worked with Gumstix Overo boards while I was writing my B.Sc. thesis.   Project Description ...
