Learn the endless possibilities when it comes to applying Gumstix’s COMs and Geppetto boards. Projects created both in-house and by customers.

Last quarter, we launched the first “Go Geppetto” contest looking for innovators to create a board design using Geppetto and the Intel Joule module. We announced our Grand Prize winner and 5 Get-to-Market winners last February 2017 and have been working with all the winners to finalize their designs.

We are happy to share an update about the board we manufactured from the design of our Go Geppetto Grand Prize winner, Marco dal Pino. He shared on his social media pages that he has received his board and we are thrilled to support and help him move forward in innovating his product idea.

Go Geppetto Winner: Compact RealSense Sensor Kit

From November 2016 until second week of January 2017, Gumstix, in partnership with Intel, organized a Go Geppetto competition! We are pleased to share with you one of the five of the Get To Market Prizes.

Project Owner: Roman Sandoval
Something about Roman: Roman Sandoval is an RF Systems Engineering Consultant in the Mobile Device and Semiconductor Industry. He is the founder of an engineering consulting firm called Wavecast Technologies. His clients and end customers include Fortune 100 companies in the Bay Area. He travels frequently between Texas, California, and Asia. He is an author of two patents and is a published IEEE author.

Roman worked on high volume manufacturing test of wireless devices including phones, tablets, and wireless chips (WLAN, BT, FM, NFC) and has traveled to some of the largest contract manufacturing sites to help oversee NPI builds of consumer electronics. His previous employer includes National Instruments and Qualcomm. He worked on military related projects including Multi-Spectral Night Vision Goggles for the Army Rangers and Autonomous Robotics. He helped start up a business as an application developer on the first iPhone platform. He is a 3D CAD, Solidworks, instructor and has taught basic to advanced RF / Wireless courses.

Roman is passionate about Wireless Technologies, Robotics, and IoT. He believes that Connected Robotics and Automation are central elements of the future. He wants to be part of defining this new era of technology.

Board Name: Compact RealSense Sensor Kit

Inspiration behind the board:
“I just want to make something useful, and I think working on a smart indoor drone platform is that thing.

I believe that connectivity of everything is the future. My career involved working on testing wireless devices, and I’ve seen the ongoing proliferation of IoT and connected embedded devices. So, one of the things I wanted to focus on is in connecting drones – If we are able to remotely control drones in an autonomous, wireless, fashion with a high degree of utilization of its sensory data (to be sent to the cloud, computers, user, etc), then I believe that is a technology that will be incredibly useful in various industries and applications. The ability to conduct security measures indoors, provide real-time 3D mapping of a warehouse, inspect your production line at a remote location, or greet a person who comes through your front door are few examples of what smart indoor drones can do.

Intel provides RealSense cameras and high-end computation SOM like the Joule that allow engineers like me create a drone platform with wireless capabilities, obstacle avoidance, face tracking, and real-time mapping and navigation. GumStix’s Geppetto has helped me make this project come into reality by allowing me to quickly develop a more mobile (light weight) expansion board for connecting the Intel Joule and RealSense R200 camera together with other drone components.”
