UC San Diego Professor Thomas Bewley discusses his Segway-like educational robotics kit, eduMIP, based on the BeagleBone Blue at Linaro Connect Vancouver 2018. This inexpensive kit (available online, for $128, at Renaissance Robotics https://www.renaissancerobotics.com/e…) is used in his Embedded Control & Robotics course at UCSD, which Prof Bewley is currently working on taking online as a MOOC. It is also beginning to be used by a community of researchers and educators at other universities around the world. In this video, Prof Bewley also introduces his early efforts in developing new (and, significantly higher-power) motor-control daughterboards in the 96boards and Raspberry Pi formats. He also discusses eduMIP v.2 and some other advanced prototypes in his lab, as well as the Robot Control (RC) software library that drives this hardware, and will ultimately enable easy porting of control codes across the BeagleBone, Raspberry Pi, and 96boards linux-based product lines, in addition to deployment onto very-low-cost custom targets based on Cortex M based processors running an RTOS. His ultimate goal with this ambitious effort is to facilitate a much more seamless pathway from lab prototype to commercial product.

LVC20-201 Boot-Time Tracing With Extra Boot ConfigFriday, October 16, 2020
Boot-time tracing is one of the latest Linux kernel tracing proposal, which allows us to trace kernel booting with full tracing features, like per-event filters and triggers, histograms, instances, dynamic-events etc. Along with the boot-time tracing the kernel command-line interface is also expanded by Extra Boot Config (XBC) so that user can specify complex boot-time settings with structured-key value configuration file.
This talk will show you what the boot-time tracing and the extra boot config provide, the advantages and how you can use it for your boot-time features.
LVC20-317 Analysis of ARM64's Competence for Oil&Gas Seismic Data Processing ApplicationsWednesday, September 30, 2020
Each seismic survey in Oil & Gas exploration generates tons of seismic wave data, typically hundreds of Terabytes. Transforming the huge amount of data into a accurate earth subsurface model requires exascale level computing power. This presentation will analyze the computing requirements and trends in seismic data processing, evaluate the competence of the current generations ARM64 SoCs and the new features required.
LVC20-117 Everything you want to know about live migration on Arm64 CloudWednesday, September 30, 2020
Slack channel to chat with the speaker during the live broadcast: https://linaroconnect.slack.com/archives/C01B1SV18F5
Currently, one big gap between Arm64 and X86 cloud platforms is that X86 can provide a much better instance migration experience than the Arm64 platform. CPU comparison and CPU model capabilities have provided Arm64 VM with the ability to live migration among different hardware vendors. This function is the essential function of the data center. From the cloud management framework, we also need to consider the realization of supporting VM live migration.
In this session, we will talk about what we have done in the most widely used virtualization management tool - Libvirt to provide better live migration capabilities on Arm64 platform and also some details in the newest lightweight cloud management project such as Kubevirt.
With live migration support on Arm64, it can finally benefit the cloud ecosystem for large scale datacenter scenarios which may use different Arm64 CPU architectures and vendors.
BKK19-200K2 - KEYNOTE: Open Source QA - what will it take to get to the next levelTuesday, April 16, 2019
Over the last 20 years, Open Source software has made incredible inroads and become the de-facto standard for system software in many market categories. The same is not true of Open Source Quality Assurance. Despite the availability of many QA resources that are Open Source, the testing landscape is very fragmented, and there are lots of areas where in-house and ad-hoc testing hardware, code and methods are used.
In this keynote, Tim will describe barriers to sharing existing tests and test infrastructure. Tim will give his insights about what will it take to get Quality Assurance to the same level of ubiquity, quality, community, ease of deployment, and low cost, as Open Source coding.
