Deploy to Beaglebone Blue Board

Preparations

The file config.sh.in contains entries for the destination of deploying.

target_IP_address=192.168.7.2
target_username=ost
target_application_folder=/home/ost/

Deploying

Next, edit deploy.txt on the host in your project directory and enter the application program you want to transfer together with the necessary hardware configuration file, e.g.

build-armhf/simple-motor-control/simpleMotorControl
build-armhf/simple-motor-control/HwConfigBBBlue.json

If you wrote your own Say Hello with EEROS the file would look like

build-armhf/hello/helloworld

Finally, load them onto the target with

$ ./deploy.sh

Running your Application

ssh into the board with

$ ssh ost@192.168.7.2

For credentials see Beaglebone Blue.

Change into your target application folder and run the example

$ cd bin
$ ./helloworld
or
$ sudo ./simpleMotorControl -c HwConfigBBBlue.json

Running your Application which is a ROS Node

Be sure to setup your network settings according to Network Setup. Set the environment variable ROS_MASTER_URI in your shell with

export ROS_MASTER_URI=http://192.168.7.3:11311

Add the following line to your /etc/hosts file (under Ubuntu)

192.168.7.2  bblue

Run your application with

$ sudo -E ./application

Running the Built-in Examples of EEROS

Running the built-in examples of EEROS as given in the tutorial pages in Tutorials is quite simple, e.g.

$ sudo /usr/examples/rtTest/rtTest
