The Raspberry Pi 2 computer, released in Februaryis the latest generation of Raspberry Pi hardware. The video support is unchanged, although the composite video output is now provided via a 3. While it depends on the benchmark program you run, the new CPU on the Raspberry Pi 2 is roughly six times faster than the original Raspberry Pi.
This means that it is now suitable for some applications where the Raspberry Pi was previously too slow. As a desktop, it is now much more responsive and able to run more applications simultaneously with good performance. While you can compile natively on the machine, for larger programs it was very slow. Building Qt 5 natively, even on an overclocked Raspberry Pi 1, literally takes several days. They are now being manufactured at a rate of 20, per day.
One of the first things I thought I would try was to build Qt 5 natively. I was using the Raspbian Linux distribution, which is the preferred operating system for the Raspberry Pi. There are other options available, including Windows 10 in the future. As discussed in some previous blog posts, Qt version 4 is available as standard Raspbian packages and works out of the box on the Raspberry Pi 2.
However, Qt 5 is not yet packaged for Raspbian, so you need to build it yourself. Note that if you have both Qt 4 and Qt 5 installed on your system, to avoid confusion you should take care to note which versions of tools, such as qmake, you are running.
Raspbian Linux on the Raspberry Pi is essentially the same as any other desktop Linux system, and Qt can be built simply by installing the necessary compiler and development packages, running the configure script, and then running "make".
This will work out of the box for the Xbased xcb back end for Qt, but a little more configuration is currently needed if you want support for OpenGL. There are some instructions 1 for building Qt 5 natively on the Qt Wiki server. These work for the Raspberry Pi 2. If you have correctly configured Qt, the output of the configure program should include these lines in the output:.
I initially built Qt 5. It takes about four hours to build the basic Qt libraries. To build everything, including the large modules like QtWebKit and QtWebEngine and all of the example and demos, can take about eight hours. I built Qt using the command "make -j4" to run up to four parallel jobs, taking advantage of the four CPU cores available on the Raspberry Pi 2.
You can expect build times to vary slightly, depending on the speed of your SD card.Animats on Apr 30, That's nice, but sad. Until QNX 6. Back then, at QNX 6. Desktop usability went downhill from there. The desktop environment had very consistent performance, because QNX doesn't swap. It's a real time system, after all.

I could run the real-time vehicle control system and simulator at a higher priority than the desktop and not have it miss a timeout while doing compiles and web browsing at a non real time priority. I miss QNX. It's much simpler and saner than Windows or Linux. It's what home routers and similar devices ought to be running instead of Linux. AceJohnny2 on Apr 30, It's what professional routers do run. Well, some of them at least. We had control-plane boards and data-plane boards, with inter-board redundancy, which meant that if there was a failure on one of the boards, a standby was ready and functional within seconds.
It was very cool, and I miss it a bit. I certainly loved being able to kill and restart drivers, which were of course user-processes QNX is a microkernel OS. Since I was doing driver development work, that was useful. I find a lot of similar joy working with Erlang. This means, no need to synchronize data access, as every subscriber gets it's own message copy.
If the program was architected as regular class hierarchy, you would somehow need to pass the reference to that required class instance or use a global function call.

If there is a message bus where the required class is already publishing messages, you can simply subscribe to data from the required module and it is delivered via message bus. The only interface to other modules is via message bus, so you can replace the module with one that publishes the same type of messages.
Bus broker just sends the messages over TCP instead and that is totally transparent for both involved nodes. I built something very close to this but it's closed source and very unlikely to ever be released as open source. But it's doable. About 4 man-years of work.
I don't have much experience in the field. Are you searching for something like Apache Kafka? On the web page it states that Apache Kafka is a distributed streaming platform. The Consumer API allows an application to subscribe to one or more topics and process the stream of records produced to them.
The Streams API allows an application to act as a stream processor, consuming an input stream from one or more topics and producing an output stream to one or more output topics, effectively transforming the input streams to output streams.GitHub is home to over 40 million developers working together to host and review code, manage projects, and build software together.

Can anyone suggest which RTOS would be good for the beginners?
Using the Raspberry Pi as a microcontroller
Will this help? Although the original project only supports Raspberry Pi 1, I have succesfully compiled this fork on a Raspberry Pi 2, and it says to support 3 also. The only one that I was able to run on raspberry pi 3 until now is Fuchsia OS's kernel Magentabut it is in a earlier stage and low documented. RISC OS is not a true real-time operating system, however, it does use cooperative multi-taskingmeaning you can run a process that can voluntarily refuse to surrender itself to another process.
What consequences this may have I don't know, but I would assume that:. You can get things configured to allow this without problems, but it may involve restrictions on what the OS can accomplish e. Context switches to kernel mode will only occur because of system calls made by the process in order to complete its goals. That's pretty close to real time functionality, depending on how "real time" you need to get.
The only way reasonable way of making sense of this is to split the RTOS definition into three levels:. Low-complexity would be something like a washing machine or a data logger, and you're probably better off with simpler hardware eg Arduino or maybe a simpler MCU, or even just sequential logic, in the first place.
It'll consume less power, and there'd be a lot less to worry about: Never make things more complicated than they have to be.
High-complexity would be something like a full multi-tasking system, which a RTOS isn't. It'd probably be better to run your GUI on a separate device, if you want that. High-complexity could also be monitoring processes that call other processes, and some must be prioritised, but again you're better off with some kind of parallel processing there, or it fails the capability of responding in real-time. Medium-complexity would be where you need the interfaces a normal OS can provide, eg USB, and perhaps a small display output, but you want to process a stream of data and not be interrupted by anything.
This sounds like the level of an automotive application. That will run a single task which can be fast enough to poll for a number of events, without being interrupted by other things. Other hardware interrupts run timers and IO you may not be using. I hope that both fills in some gaps in the info above, and makes clear the gaps in my own knowledge.

As such, it gets associated with the "maker" scene, and sometimes the line between the Arduino and Arduino-style embedded microcontrollers and the Pi gets blurred. Fact is, Raspberry Pi and Arduino are very different devices, even though they are often seen on the same workbench together. The Arduino makes a lot of sense for some projects, but for others the Pi may actually be the better choice if you're triggering complex multimedia events, for example. But if you expect the Pi to be a drop-in replacement for an Arduino, you're in for a few surprises.
I've used both the Arduino and the Pi in different craft projects, sometimes because one is clearly the right choice over the other, and other times simply because I had one on hand and not the other. If you're used to the Arduino or if you've just read up on it a lot and aren't clear on how it and the Pi are differentthen here are the extra steps that I have found when getting the Pi to act more like an embedded microcontroller than a mini PC.
One of the first things people learn about the Arduino is that unless you have stuff to hook up to it, it's not terribly useful; you need input sensors and output devices or else you're programming a microcontroller without anything to control. The Pi is the polar opposite; much of what it does can be entirely software-based, so the tendency to connect outboard electronics is a little less common.
But it doesn't have to be. The Raspberry Pi has a number of GPIO pins the exact number depends on the modelwhich can detect input or send output signals.
Unlike the Arduino, all of these pins are digital IO, meaning that they know two states: on and off. Most Arduino boards also have analog pins, which can detect degrees of states, the practical application of which is the ability to connect things like temperature sensors, light sensors, or potentiometers for arbitrary input.
But unlike the Arduino, access to those pins through software is not presumed.
There are two development libraries on offer:. It's a fairly high-level interface in terms of what an Arduino user might expect, so there's no SPI or serial functionality. But for simple projects, it works quite well. You can turn an LED on and off, activate a motor, and so on.
Its syntax and general design will feel familiar to anyone who has used an Arduino system, and being a low-level library, it even contains modules that allow you to use external boards like an Arduino, or similar device as analogue inputs. The Python libraries have the overhead of Python, which periodically needs to do memory management tasks behind the scenes, and even WiringPi is subject to the Linux kernel's scheduling decisions.
In practice, this probably won't actually matter to you unless you are building a device that depends vitally on real-time performance. When preparing for a multimedia project that was to be Pi-based, I did do a few tests in an attempt to boost performance using security limitsbut they all failed I never went so far as to re-compile the kernel, so that didn't help.It is distributed under the MIT license.
