Gumstix specializes in tiny but powerful computer-on-modules (COM) with Ethernet/WiFi/Bluetooth
and full installations of either Yocto Linux or Android. This means that developers can bring
state-of-the-art machine learning, deep learning and data mining algorithms programmed in either
Python or R to even their most compact embedded projects.

Swarming algorithms provide researchers with a 'bottom-up' approach to solving difficult problems
in complex and isolated environments.
Gumstix provides researches with compact and
computationally powerful embedded devices for constructing many devices that can coordinate with
WiFi or Bluetooth.
An especially well-suited computer-on-module for swarming research projects:
- Bluetooth wireless communications with Access Point mode
- Low power consumption, 1GB flash memory
- Small and light form

Robotics and servos is a Gumstix speciality. Our products have been used by the aeronautical
industry, for military applications and even for satellites!
Case Study: The Hekateros Arm
As one of our robotics applications, Gumstix developed a robust mechanical arm for
research institutions and the light industry. Off-the-shelf components kept prices low, and
we utilized the Overo FireSTORM COM to fulfill heavy processing requirements.

Gumstix is committed to providing researchers and educators custom built small form factor boards
for third party vendors, like Raspberry Pi, Toradex, Critical Link and BeagleBone. Researchers
can either design, build and order their custom-built boards in Geppetto that are specifically
tailored to their audio, video, communications and hardware connection needs.
Or, they can simply order one of the pre-built boards below built by Gumstix engineers.
Offering computer-on-modules (COM) for as little as $5,
Raspberry Pi is one of the most
popular COM vendors.
Pi Compute Module is a Raspberry Pi in a flexible form factor, suited for industrial
applications. Gumstix leverages the Module in several ways:
Developers can take full advantage of the Module with the Dev Board, designed in
Geppetto by Gumstix engineers, that comes with a DSI and CSI2 connector along with an HDMI port.
Alternatively, developers can design their own expansion board, utilizing the Raspberry Pi
Compute Module, in Gumstix's Design-to-Order tool.
