Parallel Processing with Raspberry Pi 3

Course Info

Raspberry Pi is a simple and an affordable computer that is used world-wide for helping students of all ages, learn programming. Latest versions of Raspberry Pi modules, e.g., Raspberry Pi 3 is a multi-core processor which can handle tasks in parallel. This gives an amazing opportunity to learn the benefits of parallel programming in such a simplistic setting.

Raspberry Pi 3 is also used to process images. It was recently used by a Pakistani Team in Singapore Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Challenge (SAUVC 2017) to process underwater video and implement visual servoing (see details at www.sauvc.org). The Pakistani team managed to win the world's second largest underwater robotics competition. You will have the opportunity to interact with the mentors of the same team during this workshop. So, hop right in and experience this incredible learning experience with RoboMinors.
