I want to install a mini PC and 7inch touch screen on my InMoov, and can't decide either buying the new Raspberry Pi 4 or the LattePanda PC.
The positives of using the Pi-4, are the power on/off functionality is easier to control rather than the LattePanda with has similar power off function to a laptop or standard PC, meaning I would have to switch this of separately when powering down?? Also the price is a lot cheaper for the Pi 4 4Gb verses the LattePanda 4Gb.
My main question is if I go for the Raspberry Pi, do I use ARC running under Windows or EZ-Builder-Pi under Raspbian ( version of Linux )??
Although I'm very familiar using MS windows and I used Linux going back many yrs ago, I'm a complete novice using a Raspberry Pi and Raspbian OS.
Upgrade to ARC Pro
ARC Early Access will give you immediate updates and new features needed to unleash your robot's potential!
ARC on the pi won’t support all skill controls.
Cant beat the panda
Forgot about ARC on the Pi won’t support all of the functions.
I suppose it’s going to be the Panda. Another thing is i’ve already purchased the 7 screen ( 1024x600 resolution ) to play around with, and noticed ARC doesn’t support that low resolution, to be able to read iit comfortably??
It did come up with a notice box stating the lowest resolution supported was something like 1024x800 when loading ARC with this screen,
BUT it did load OK, the issue was I had to use the side scroll bars ( Hoz & Vert ) to navigate around my Project which is very large.
"you just need to adjust 1 anomaly of the ARC save button to the synthiam cloud"
Can you explain your comment above in more detail, not sure what you mean exactly?
To be honest I wasn't entirely happy with this touch screen display, from some reason I can't get it to work on a Vensmile W10 mini PC running windows 10, although I can get it to work on my laptop and main PC running the same version of Window 10, using the same cables etc.
Thinking of sending it back as I have only had it a couple of days.
Edit: I did find another 10 inch touch screen and it’s hdmi. Mixed reviews on amazon. I’ll let you know by Thursday.
In the past I set up my Madame Nindo fortune teller to auto shut down using a single pushbutton. I had the restart, boot also from another single button. I used win 7 at the time. I assume win 10 should also work. I can try to find the code if you want it.
Panda Bios update page
Thanks for reminding me about this. I need it for Olivia. I have a new Latta Panda Alpha and will need an auto restart an shut down for her
Will, great about being able to change auto boot options in the Bios. Haven’t yet ordered the Panda, still debating to get the 2gb or 4gb as I’m only going to use it on my InMoov with ARC.
EDIT: Looks like the onboard Leonardo is used as uart passthrough...so i will be using it for that instead.
