Roboard 110 beginner help question

Hi there
We are two EE students working on robots with web cam capabilities due to the magnitude of processing we will attempt to use a CPU such as the roboard 110 versus a MCU that does not have enough processing capability.

We have been doing a lot of research but still have many questions about using this roboard/CPU.

we have intermediate experience in coding (C++, Matlab) so I think we can figure the coding out with enough effort.

We would like to know how this whole process is started in a nutshell, we think we have an idea, but we are not so computer "savvy" and are not familiar with how this whole thing works?? We understand that an OS must be installed then a certain IDE (of choice), perhaps some hardware drivers and all this goes on the SD and is booted from here (I hope we are right so far) then for instance how is the program which is written in a certain IDE executed on its own , if the CPU were to be located at a distance on a robot.

I would appreciate if someone could help us with this, so we can get our feet on the ground and get this proj working???

Thanks alot.

excited to hear back; Rolls :D

Hi,

for OS installation, you may first refer to Overgoor's tutorial for Linux or PedroR's tutorial for WinXP:

http://robosavvy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3808
http://robosavvy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3647

For an overview of RoBoard's H/W and RoBoIO library, please download the H/W introduction slide and RoBoIO introduction slide from the official site:

http://www.roboard.com/download_ml.htm

You can also find the .Net lib (for C# & VB.Net) and Visual Basic 6 lib, and the Labview lib by ries, from the above page. :)

In general, for writing programs for RoBoard, you just write and build your programs on your computer and then copy the execution files to RoBoard to run. When you need to use RoBoard's I/O functions, you may employ the RoBoIO library (can be found in the above page) in your programs. :)

I have gone through all the tutorials and have a much much better Idea of how this thing works.

Now all I need to do is make a decision, and buy the board.

I will do this once my colleague and I make a decision and get a solid plan together.

thanku for your very prompt response.

I will be posting more in the future.
