BeagleBone Blue is a complete robotics controller built around the BeagleBone open hardware computer. Linux-enabled, product is community-supported and fully open-source. High-performance, flexible networking capabilities are coupled with a real-time capable Linux system and an improved set of peripherals for building mobile robots quickly and affordably. By utilizing the pre-configured WiFi access point, starting code development is as simple as connecting a battery and opening a web browser.

Product has onboard battery management with charging, PWM/PPM outputs for 6V servo motors or electronic-speed-controllers (ESCs), dc motor drivers, quadrature encoder inputs, on-board sensors including a 9-axis IMU and barometer, a wide array of GPIO and serial protocol connectors including CAN,4 Adc inputs, a PC USB interface, a USB 2.0 host port, a reset button, a power button, two user configurable buttons and 11 user configurable LED indicators. https://beagleboard.org/blue
