System Overview

The Scout mainboard pairs an 8-bit AVR as an IO node with an 32-bit ARM Cortex A8 for heavy computational tasks.

Scout board design couples an ARM9 and AVR together.

Software Architecture

Scout runs on a Gumstix (Overo) port of ROS (robot operating system), which provides the infrastructure necessary to control a complex robotic system. ROS has an active developer community, and the Scout team is proud to be a part of the developer network. The Scout port of ROS runs on top of Ubuntu (ARM).
