Setting up the software

As already stated, the more complex part of this prototype is the software. We need to install several software packages into our BeagleBone Black, and the software we have to write by ourselves needs some skills. However, don't worry, I'm going to explain all needed steps one at a time!

Setting up the Python bindings
