The Arduino Tre looks to be a great candidate as the CPU for agduino. According to the release notes, the Tre promises to deliver “100 times more performance with the Sitara-processor-based TRE than on the Arduino Leonardo or Uno. This performance opens the doors to more advanced Linux-powered applications.”
Other very useful features of the Tre:
- Network via ethernet
- MicroSD Slot
- HDMI video port
- Numerous analog and digital connectors
If we could build a .deb package that deploys simply and quickly: apt-get install agduino. Then the user just has to configure some .conf files, tell the duino where to find the sensors, servos, relays, etc., and it’s ready to deploy. It could be controlled via android, or simple web interface.
Check out Reef Angel for a good, but incomplete, analogy for this.
