We LOVE Open-Source
The Novus Robotics Cape has Open Source Libraries, Sample Code, and detailed documentation to facilitate developers that want to get their projects working quickly.

The Novus Robotics Cape brings the power of the BeagleBone Black to your robotics project with almost
no setup time. Built by engineers for engineers, the Novus Robotics Cape has innovative features that allow it to be extremely versatile when paired with a BeagleBone Black.

Want to look under the hood? No problem. We've made sure all libraries are open-source and developed ample documentation for you, the developers and hackers.
