I'm receiving a ARM (phillips) based demo board next week for nothing related to robotics. But since I'm receiving it anyway, let me ask.
What would it be useful for in a mobile robotics application? I mean, I was planning to use PIC microcontrollers (18F482) that I thought were enough to handle sensor data and send it to the cpu running windows. Would it be any advantage to replace PICs with ARMs? Wouldn't that be overkilling?
