Robotics With Intel Based Processor and Robot Operating System is the actual mainstream robotics. We started the example with Arduino Robot and now pushing the adrenaline. The major reason to think or rather actually deploy Robotics With Intel Based Processor is the hardware level stability, all processor stage support, giving the independence of Language and passing the safety standard set. It is obvious that, coding with relatively less known programming language is difficult for the execution of complex logical set and obviously, the processor will not support minimum parallel processing. Robot Operating System is a dedicated special Operating System with libraries and tools for creating robotic appliances. Robot Operating System is licensed under an open source, BSD license.
Robotics With Intel Based Processor and Robot Operating System : The Basics
Robotics With Intel Based Processor has the biggest advantage that, older used processors and motherboards are available at very cheap cost from the consumer market. But this flexibility is diminished by a big factor – Robotics With Intel Based Processor will need extensive supply of power, which points to carry out the real project as a big instrument. But this burden is actually not taken in to account as the usage of such robotic unit is either movable by itself or has stationary base, like an Robotic Surgical Unit. As the motherboard is standard and has all the needed standard components, it can act either as master or slave. With virtualization software, usually master and slave is divided at software level to make the whole unit smaller. Whether there would be multiple boards or single board with virtualization, totally depends on the usage pattern. You can actually think – an attached printer is controlled by the computer with physically touching the printer unit itself.
Robotics With Intel Based Processor : Robot Operating System (ROK), Robot Intelligence Kernel (RIK) and Usages
As the flexibility increases with a standard Intel Based Processor, most Languages used either proprietary or less used. This actually inhibits the universal usage or porting of one project to another. As the pro grade robotics appliance manufacturers are actually has not opened the business with a Free Software Foundation based ideation, rather to make them have more Vendor Lock-in, it is quite impossible to use one already developed function to another field.
The importance of Robot Operating System (ROI) and Robot Intelligence Kernel (RIK) is, they breaks this barrier of development. The official websites can be navigated respectively from :
For practical purpose Lisp is an universally used programming language, where we need to employ multiple sets of fuzzy logic and AI.
A very basic example of Robotics With Intel Based Processor can be just the exact application which we used in Arduino Robot’s article linked at the beginning of this article – a WiFi controlled Robot with Intel Atom Processor :
As you can see, the intention of giving everything free of cost is actually to sell their hardwares but, it is a good example, how actually in real the working commercial robotic appliances are manufactured.
