My attempt to cross compile a more complicated Raspberry Pi application, that uses the native OpenCV and the PiCamera libraries on the target system.
Developing code natively on the Raspberry Pi is not ideal for larger projects so I decided to explore cross compilation to attain better productivity. This post describes how I set up cross compilation using Ubuntu via Parallels 10 on OS X.
The next step in the Blue Block Challenge is getting the simple object detect code that I’ve already developed on the Mac, running on the Raspberry Pi using the PiCamera via its MMAL C interface.
Now that the first version of NavBot is complete it is time to think about how to scale things up… and an 8 bit Atmel microcontroller is not the answer.
