Installing Hardware Libraries

As soon as you want to access hardware on your system you need a Hardware Library. Depending on the type of the hardware you have to install one of the libraries given below. Please keep in mind that these libraries are already included in our target images or get installed automatically if you follow the steps given in Use on the Host.

Simulator

Clone the eeros simulator wrapper source repository:

$ git clone https://github.com/eeros-project/sim-eeros.git sim-eeros

Checkout a stable version of the wrapper:

$ cd sim-eeros
$ git checkout v1.0.0

Continue with Compile Manually.

Follow the installation instructions in http://flink-project.ch/ to install flink.
As a next step clone the eeros flink wrapper source repository:

$ git clone https://github.com/eeros-project/flink-eeros.git flink-eeros

Checkout a stable version of the wrapper:

$ cd flink-eeros
$ git checkout v1.0.0

Continue with Compile Manually.

Beagle Bone blue

Make sure to have the librobotcontrol installed on your host and target machine. It is already included in our SDK for the BeagleBone blue board. When this is done clone the eeros bbblue wrapper source repository:

$ git clone https://github.com/eeros-project/bbblue-eeros.git bbblue-eeros

Checkout a stable version of the wrapper:

$ cd bbblue-eeros
$ git checkout v1.2.0

Continue with Compile Manually.

comedi

Follow the installation instructions in http://www.comedi.org/ to install the comedi library.
When this is done clone the eeros comedi wrapper source repository:

$ git clone https://github.com/eeros-project/comedi-eeros.git comedi-eeros

Checkout a stable version of the wrapper:

$ cd comedi-eeros
$ git checkout master

Continue with Compile Manually.

ROS

Follow the installation instructions in http://www.ros.org/ to install ROS itself.
After this you have to clone the eeros ROS wrapper source repository:

$ git clone https://github.com/eeros-project/ros-eeros.git ros-eeros

Checkout a stable version of the wrapper:

$ cd ros-eeros
$ git checkout v.1.0.0

Continue with Compile Manually.

EtherCAT

The detailed documentation about EtherCAT together with installation and setup information is given on OST Infoportal.

Use the predefined EtherCAT blocks within a control system, see Blocks for Interfacing with EtherCAT.

CANopen

The detailed documentation about CANopen together with installation and setup information is given on https://gitlab.ost.ch/tech/inf/public/canopenlib.

Use the predefined CAN blocks within a control system, see Blocks for Interfacing with CAN. Add -DUSE_CAN to the cmake arguments when building EEROS to include an example using CANopen.

MODBUS

We use MODBUS for accessing sensor data. On Linux, use https://libmodbus.org/ for information about installing the library. For the examples in EEROS which use MODBUS to be built, you have to add -DUSE_MODBUS to the cmake arguments when building EEROS.

PixyCam

When using the pixy camera (see PixyCam 2), you have to fetch and install its necessary library. Add -DUSE_PIXYCAM to the cmake arguments when building EEROS to include an example with PixyCam.

RealSense

When using the RealSense camera (see RealSense T256), you have to fetch and install its necessary library. Add -DUSE_REALSENSE to the cmake arguments when building EEROS to include an example with RealSense T256.

RP Lidar

When using a RPLidar (see RP Lidar), you have to fetch and install its necessary library. Add -DUSE_RPLIDAR to the cmake arguments when building EEROS to include an example with RPLidar sensor. This argument will also fetch a driver from the external directory within EEROS.

SBG Ellipse-A

When using a SBG Ellipse-A sensor (see SBG Ellipse-A), you have to fetch and install its necessary library. Add -DUSE_SBGECOMM to the cmake arguments when building EEROS to include an example with Ellipse-A sensor.

ODrive

When using ODrive motor controllers (see ODrive), you need a library with the external/odrive directory of EEROS. Build this library and install it. Add -DUSE_ODRIVE to the cmake arguments when building EEROS to include an example controlling an odrive.
