I'm looking for a small embedded computer on-a-board system for a final year university project on Swarm Robotics.
I have Googled around the Internet for quite sometime and while I have come close to finding what I wanted, I still haven't been able to find a kit/board/system which has all the features I need. The closest I've come to finding a kit that matches my requirements, would be the APF9328 or APF27 from Armadeus:
The Specs I'm most interested in are:
Dedicated Processor: ARM, Coldfire, Blackfin (anything capable of running either ARMLinux or uCLinux) FPGA (built onto the board): Spartan 3A,3E,6... decent number of gates for video DSP & recognition WiFi module: either 802.11b or g...
Other restrictions would be form factor (the hardware shouldn't be bigger than 15x15x3cm (6x6x1.2") and of course price, as the system must be as cheap as possible as it's a uni project & there needs to be at least 6-7 of these SwarmBot running at a single time...
If you have any suggestions / products / solutions or recommendations, you know what to do.
Cheers & Best Regards, Michael.
