Ubuntu on underwater UAV

16 10 2008

The popular hackaday website today posted a link to a writeup of the recent underwater UAV competition entry from Cambridge University, featured on the mini-ITX website. Scroll down a bit, you will notice rather than a lightweight embedded platform its actually using Ubuntu 8.04 on a picoITX. Possibly overkill in terms of CPU usage, but an interesting direction to head in.
