Student: Vedant Paranjape
Mentors: Kumar Abhishek, Zubeen Tolani
This project is currently just a proposal.
Completed all the requirements listed on the ideas page. the code for the cross-compilation task can be found here submitted through the pull request #138.
School: Veermata Jijabai Technological Institute (VJTI)
Primary language : English, Hindi, Marathi
Typical work hours : 10AM - 7PM Indian Standard Time
Previous GSoC participation: I find embedded pretty interesting, given I have experience with ESP32, I think I will be able to excel in this project. This is the first time i am participating in GSoC

Experience and approach
I have decent experience in C++, C and Python. I have done several projects involving embedded systems like ESP32, I well-versed with freeRTOS. I recently did a project on ESP32, in which I used ESP to control and plot PID loop running on the embedded device, plotting the values on a python GUI. Other than that I have developed firmware for a 3 DOF arm based on a ESP32 custom board. I did a internship with a embedded deviced startup, where I built:
- Built TCP network stack for embedded IoT Devices
- Implemented Synchronous TCP server using Boost.Asio(C++) and Boost.Thread(C++)
- Implemented a tool to calculate round trip time(RTT) of tcp packets
I actively contribute to open source and do a lot of mini projects throughout the year, you can find my several more interesting projects at my github page
I believe that if I get stuck on my project and my mentor isn’t around, I will use the resources that are available to me. Some of those information portals are listed below.
- https://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/PRU_Training:_Hands-on_Labs PRU Guide
- https://markayoder.github.io/PRUCookbook/ Mark Yoder's cookbook is a excellent guide
- Derek Molly's beagle bone guide provides all the information needed for getting up and running with my beagle.
- The technical reference manuals provided by TI on am3358 and am5729 are the best source
- Processor SDK Linux Software Guide is a good reference material
If successfully completed, what will its impact be on the BeagleBoard.org community? Include quotes from BeagleBoard.org community members who can be found on http://beagleboard.org/discuss and http://bbb.io/gsocchat.
