I try to wrap my head around one of Haskell's main higher order functions.
Many websites use bots to automate tasks and add useful (and sometimes harmful) functionality. For instance, there are reddit bots that can help you stabilize shaky videos, remind you of events or even vote on the usefulness of other bots.
I try to solve Google Code Jam Problems using Haskell.
As I mentioned in my first article on this blog, I’m now using Hugo, the static site generator to build my personal website. Due to the needs of my work environment (mostly because I need to use MS Word and certain MATLAB features on a regular basis), I’ve been primarily using Windows as my operating system for the past year or so.
When prototyping programs that deal with lots of data on an Arduino and other embedded systems or even on full blown computers, it’s really useful to have a quick tool for plotting the output of the program.
Over the past few months I’ve been spending a lot of time on implementing various signal processing algorithms in C/C++. Things like Kalman Filters, various types of FIR filters and finite state machines.
I walk you through writing a simple cyclic task in Xenomai.
In my lab, we recently started moving away from Simulink’s Real-Time packages and towards Real-Time Linux for implementing the low level control of our robots. I thought I would document what I went through to get Xenomai (A Real-Time framework for linux) working stably as a resource for others trying to get started on the same thing.
