    You can start loading-up on the 1.5Ghz Nano ITX in about three years ... ago...

    Ok, but i don't think they are interested in a single robot builder question. Meanwhile if any find this
    information on internet please post share here.

    Some have built robots on Via C7 Pico-itx, how are the performances in terms of battery duration and CPU power ? I have in mind to use the Pico-itx board to get the video and the audio streams for attached webcams and to send these to a pc cluster for video and audio processing. I prefer Atom for more CPU power to have 30fps video and 64k audio streaming.

    The software platform is java-based.

    Last note: i work on linux and windows, it's interesting to have a Dual-boot Mobile Robot, but i don't know
    if it is possible to run WinXP on this Pico-itx.

    You can definitely run Windows XP on any pico-itx board mentioned. The pico-itx 1ghz C7 draws about 15w, so with a 9.6v 4200 mAh I get about 90-100 minutes of runtime (due to extra peripherals such as USB devices, HDD, etc). It's powerful enough for vision processing as well, one thing most people don't realize is you don't really need high res video for the majority of 'hobby level' machine vision applications.

    Re: Atom based PICO-ITX board as robot brain

    ihave pic-itx board,2 of them and another on order,and bost run xp pro stripped
    reason why its stripped to have more room on my flash card,latter on using solid state drives
    if you ever add flash cards or ssd ,make shore you read onfo on making it work
    i posted 2 links about it in another post
    also make shore you read up on how to disable the page or will fried your memory card

    also looking at dual booting with linux

    Re: Atom based PICO-ITX board as robot brain

    i found a better board for robots with 4 hours run time,2 lbs 1.6 mhz up to 1 gig ram,solid state drive ,dell laptop mini,atom processor,wireless network mini card,and linux or windows xp all for $399 inspiron mini 9,size is fairly small 9.13 " by 6.77" by 1.07" dont need to buy harddrive,or software,or cables,look fairly easy to mount and lcd screen and has a web cam,i am going to pre order 1 or 2
    with all the hard drive to hook up and cables and mounting of the pico-itx board and more ,plus all costs this looks like best idea for robots
