Earlier people had to write a large amount of code ranging from low-level driver functions to high-level control algorithms for their robots. I too experienced this pain when I started working on the underwater vehicle project in my undergraduate university. This approach sometimes made changing even one sensorRead more
When Raspberry Pi 2 and Odroid U3 fail you. What next? Back to x64.
Initially Shikher thought that buying a low power armh processor was a very wise choice. Low power meant lower battery consumption so lighter batteries. Also single chip armh processors like Raspberry Pi and Odroid are way cheaper. The world was good. Until one day OpenCV came along. Initially he seemed like a nice guy. Resourceful. With his awesome HighGUI and shiny high power tools like HoughCircle, Contrast stretching he seemed like a guy ShikherRead more
