Robotics is rapidly evolving. As new advances becomes available they are adopted rapidly; whether it be new computation, sensing or actuation. As a highly interdisciplinary field with a large variety of applications at many different scales there are many different approaches. However for many of these applications embedded Linux is becoming the default computation platform. This talk will cover the history of computing in robots, use that history to understand what’s driving the choices of computer systems for robots, and explain why embedded Linux has become a dominant force. Having identified the design tradeoffs driving selection of computers for robotics systems, Tully Foote will look at what upcoming technologies and developments in computing are going to be most important to future robotic products.
