I've been working on evaluating platforms for the Mark 2 version of the SynthaSense Suit. Yup, it now has a name. I have these requirements.
- It needs to be 32 bit
- The design of the system needs to be open sourced.
- It has to have an RTOS
- It needs to have a neural network
- It needs to be wifi and bluetooth LE capable
- It needs to be mesh capable
Now, initially, I was going to build a completely custom system incorporating a microcontroller, and an artificial intelligence chip. I was very, VERY surprised to find out that the Arduino101 already incorporates a 128 node neural network into its design! And it already has an RTOS running on it. And even better yet, the board design is open sourced! With EagleCAD files! Holy crap! This saves me a ton of work. So, the next step is to get rid of the blinking LED's, and to incorporate the Arduino101 design with the analog designs into a custom board to start prototyping the Mark 2 of the sensor suite.
