Robot Reference Platform
The Home Brew Robotics Club (Silicon Valley, CA) has decided to pool their efforts by selecting a single high-end processor board (currently PandaBoard) to use on their higher end robots.
This will be known as the Robot Reference Platform (RRP).
It has been recognized that keeping up to date with the latest high end processor boards is a never ending effort. As each individual strives to make progress with the next, latest and greatest development, a lot of time is spent reinventing and rediscovering solutions that work.
It is hoped that by defining the RRP and pooling all of the knowledge and information that goes into configuring it, building kernels, selecting software packages, finding additional peripherals and drivers etc, we can advance the use of the RRP and accelerate user progress with these latest exciting technology.
