Example text

Jason Kridner, a longtime expert Software Applications Engineer responsible for all Beagle software and co–author of this textbook, of Texas Instruments told Gerald the goal was to design a processor board that would fit in a small mint tin box. After multiple board revisions, Gerald was able to meet the desired form factor. BeagleBone enjoyed a fast development cycle. From a blank sheet of paper starting point to full production was accomplished in 90 days. New designs at Texas Instruments are given a code name during product development.

For example, it is possible to use a JavaScript timer to call a function once every second. var mytimer = setInterval(myfunction, 1000); Here “myfunction” is passed to setInterval as the first argument and the second argument is the number of milliseconds between when the timer goes off to call the function. “myfunction” will be called without any arguments provided to it. “mytimer” contains a reference to the timer that can be used to disable the timer using clearInterval. We’ll discuss JavaScript timers in a bit more detail later in this chapter.

These include the following: • the if statement, • the if–else construct, • the if–else if–else construct, and the 34 2. 7: Autonomous robot within maze. • switch statement. The if statement will execute the code between an open and close bracket set should the condition within the if statement be logically true. Example: We use autonomous, maze navigating robots several times throughout the book as electronic systems examples. An autonomous, maze navigating robot is equipped with sensors to detect the presence of maze walls and navigate about the maze.
