Udoo Small Linux Computer For Self Contained Robot


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?

The more you want to do the more power you need, and let's face it - we all want to do more:D

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.
ARM processors are very powerful;like the one in the 8-core galaxy s4.*cool* *eek*
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*

Good luck with that... I wont be holding my breath for a suitable ARM based board capable of even the basic image processing required by the camera control let alone anything more complex, but let us know how you get on.
