I am planning a robot, I am wondering what kind of microcontroller I should use. I've gotten the offer to use the microcontroller at my university, we use a Xilinx Spartan µC (dont remember the exact model, I'll get back to it), which got 64 kb of memory and a 50 Mhz processor.
I'm just wondering if it will be able to do the following task quick enough:
an extended A* algorithm (where the extended part is that it can avoid static objects/moving objects along its way which is not plotted into the map, and find another path around them)
And it all need to happen quickly, as the goal for this project is having a pretty fast robot.
Do you guys think it'll be enough? Or do you have any other suggestions? In the price range, I think it should max out at around 2-300$.
