SOLVED||Gopigo is microcontroller? yes for sure

gopigo has ATMEGA328 micro controller (as per link) so this is more precise and fast for sure.
Connecting the RPI3 are we losing the fast execution and precise input output ?? as RPI3 is microprocessor.

Does it make sense to use dexter OS via usb for python and remove the RPI3 will it increase performance to communicate with sensors?

/Chetan S.

I cannot understand the statement “use Dexter OS via USB and remove the RPI3” (The ATMEGA328 does not run DexterOS and does not have a USB interface, so the RPI3 cannot be removed.)

As to “remove the RPI3 [to] increase performance to communicate with sensors”, I would counter that everything on the GoPiGo3 has its design purpose, performance, and limits that most users have found not to prohibit use as it is designed.

So the answer to every “Does it make sense to [change XYZ] of the GoPiGo” becomes, “it depends on your specific application”, but for the majority of users, especially those the business model/plan is serving, the answer will be “No, it does not make sense.”

Is your question theoretical or do you have a specific problem you are trying to solve?

Sorry my bad …

Was idiotic that didnt observe gopigo there is no usb port tho… without RPi cannot worked …

Reason i posted because today got Ardino UNO which has same micro controller but uno is more faster and precise than RPI …as per some blogs

Just learning…

@cyclicalobsessive thanks always helpful … learning lot from u all

There is some overlap between micro controller and general purpose computing architectures, that make one, or the other, or a combination of both the right answer for each specific application.

This morning I was reviewing some of Rodney Brook’s writings about the lure of general purpose reasoning in the control of robots, vs more narrow, specific environment reasoning. The emergence of vision processors will eventually make a three or four layered robot more common - microcontroller for motors and safety, vision processor to understand the environment, audio processor, and a general processor to interface with humans and beyond.

(Privacy in speech recognition and speech generation will probably cause the audio processor to be common.)

At a HUGE cost of 5 to 10Watts for the Jetson Nano.

I’m finding the 2 to 3 watt Raspberry Pi 3B, as my vision processor, audio processor, event and goal processor, and desktop/remote interface manager to be a great combination in size, power consumption, and capability exceeding my robot’s current utilization.

It’s all about the compromises.

Congratulations. That is a hot item to be working with these days.
