Real-time frameworks/RTOS based on active objects & state machines
Real-time frameworks/RTOS for building responsive and modular real-time embedded software as systems of active objects (concurrent state machines). The QP family consists of QP/C, QP/C++, and QP-nano frameworks, which are all strictly quality controlled, superbly documented, and commercially licensable. The behavior of active objects (a.k.a. actors) is specified in QP by means of hierarchical state machines (UML statecharts). The frameworks support manual coding of UML state machines in C or C++ as well as automatic code generation by means of the free QM modeling tool. All QP frameworks can run on bare-metal MCUs, completely replacing a traditional RTOS. Ports and ready-to-use examples are provided for major embedded CPUs, such as ARM Cortex-M, ARM7/9, MSP430, as well as Arduino and mbed. QP/C and QP/C++ can also work with a traditional RTOS/OS, such as ThreadX, FreeRTOS, embOS, and uC/OS-II as well as Linux (POSIX), Windows.
ChibiOS/RT is a free and efficient RTOS designed for deeply embedded applications. It offers a comprehensive set of kernel primitives and supports many architectures: ARM7, Cortex-M0, Cortex-M3, Cortex-M4, PowerPC e200z, STM8, AVR, MSP430, ColdFire, H8S, x86.

Turns the BeagleBone Black into a Nintendo-based retrogaming console.
The Beagle Entertainment System (BES) project is a complete filesystem image that turns the ARM-based BeagleBone Black single board computer into an embedded appliance capable of playing software for the SNES, NES, GBA, and Gameboy Color platforms. A full system image, ready to be written to a microSD card and used as-is, is available for download. Just connect your BES-enabled BeagleBone Black to your network and you can use BES's Node.js web interface to add or remove ROMs, configure gamepads, and edit ROM descriptions for the front-end GUI. There's no need to hand edit configuration files or manually copy ROM files onto the microSD card!

Arduino Engine Management System
This project is based on the original open source MegasquirtAVR, which became the closed source commercial product known as VEMS. There is a full copy of the original website in the Downloads section. It has the same features as Megasquirt 1 and can be tuned in MegaTunix, MegaTune or TunerStudio as a Megasquirt 1 B&G2.0-3.0. The code is compiled for the ATmega328p so the supported boards should be: - Arduino Uno - Arduino Duemilanove - Arduino Diecimila - Arduino NG - Arduino Extreme v2 - Arduino Extreme Note: only tested on Arduino Duemilanove No schematics are available yet, but please have a look at the MegasquirtAVR schematics. It is meant for the ATmega128 so not pin compatible.
State machine framework for reactive embedded systems
RKH is a generic, flexible, modular, highly portable, ANSI-C compliant, and open-source development tool for implementing hierarchical state machines based on modern state machine concepts. This modern techniques are used to give an abstract description of the dynamic behavior of a system in a substantial manner. The RKH not implements neither entire UML specs. nor entire Statechart specs. Instead, the RKH intention is to support just enough basic concepts of that powerful tools to facilitate the reactive-system modeling holding a solid, and efficient implementation. Broadly speaking, the RKH implementation has been designed from the ground up to be used in 8-bits platforms but can be easily adapted to 16 or 32-bits platforms.
