I am starting a rover project that will require the use of OpenCV libraries to do object recognition. At first glance, the NAVIO+ seems to be an easy way to handle the navigational aspects of the project, i.e. telemetry, servo control, and other guidance related issues…(“easier” than piecing the components together from scratch).
But the forum replies on the topic seem to suggest that there may not be enough computational power left on my RPi2 after navigational issues are handled.
I imagined that the Navio+ would do the work of the nav controls, and my RPi would go along for the ride, occasionally interjecting directional commands…and that the GUI aspect of my RPi would remain intact.
Can someone help me understand if the NAVIO+ is the way to go, or am I better off looking for a more self-sufficient nav control solution…Arduino based…etc…
Again, I do not have in depth knowledge, about NAVIO+ at this point so I may very well be missing some of the higher level concepts and details involved.
Thanks in advance for your time.
