A robot using a Beagleboard for high-level processing and Arduino for low-level control.

The Beagle-Arduino robot will use a Beagleboard for high-level robot functions:

  • image processing
  • artificial intelligence
  • speech synthesis
  • voice recognition
  • internet connectivity

And an Arduino for low-level functions:

  • motor / servo control
  • sensor input & output
  • battery monitoring

The two microcontrollers will be connected by USB, along with a USB webcam mounted on a servo pan/tilt mechanism, and a USB wifi dongle for internet connectivity. Basic tank treads will provide movement, possible being replaced by servo-based legs for a humanoid or dog form.
