I just found out about this kick-starter project for a small computer which the dual core version is at least 4x as powerful as the Raspberry Pi. They even have a quad core version which is probably faster. It's called the UDOO
It has an ARM iMX6 quad/dual core CPU
I wonder if it is powerful enough to run ARC on the Linux Environment.
This would be useful for anyone who wants a completely self contained robot.
But I am not sure if it is powerful enough, it's no thousand dollar computer, but would it work just as well?
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Get access to the latest features and updates with ARC Early Access edition. You'll have everything that's needed to unleash your robot's potential!
Seems like ARM processors are not powerful enough for ARC.
The best way for embedded computer projects would probably be to get a small i5 laptop.
You're right, ARM processors aren't man enough for the job. Throw a small i5 or i7, something with a lot of grunt to make all that image processing the camera needs all run smoothly.
if only you know how to make your own board for them ,then you could load linux on them and make a virtual machine to run windows 8 pro:)
only problem i can't find any digram on how to smd solder the qualcomm snapdragon s4 pro used in the galaxy s4 *stress*
