When you say you want to use the software, but without the video, do you mean without the Cockpit interface? Technically, the hardware/sensors can be interfaced with over the serial port, which can be accessed using the various serial port tools available on Linux from the Beaglebone. There shouldn’t need to be any software modifications made; just don’t run the cockpit software, lest you find yourself fighting with it for serial port access. You’ll have to hunt through the firmware to see what the various command messages and sensor messages are to learn how to talk to it, but it is possible. We are doing some work in the near future to make this sort of hacking/alternative control more accessible/easy to do, and with more documentation available.
