Need help in choosing the board or microcontroller

Hi,
I have been searchinf for hours adnd now I have came here to get some help in my problem.
I wanna control 6 dc motors of 48V. I wanna run them through image processing, So kindly suggest me some board or microcontroller for this. I have looked at arduino and raspberry pi. But I am confused which one I should get??????


And my next question is that I have calculated distance b/w object and my robot through image processing, now how I can send this distance to robot's motor that should move for some specific time???????????
Thanks! 

what board

hello,

 

im new here and i am still very young (17) and i would like to learn how to build robots so i may get introduced in this category.

is there any way of education (i preffer in holland) to learn all about robots? and if there is (even if there isn't) i would like to know wich board you recommand to use ALSO for future use.. like the professionals do! picaxe andruino or maybe somthing else

i do know programming and its C++ is not too hard for ME xD

 

soo bring it on thankks alot,

A ridiculously powerful Arduino form factor board

Clicking around, I found this PIC32-based board.  It's the same form factor as an Arduino Mega board, but it's powered by a PIC32 running at 80MHz.  This is an 80MHz MIPS CPU too (a RISC CPU you'll see all over the place, and is somewhat similar to ARM) that has integrated USB and Ethernet support.  Not to mention 512k of flash and 128k of SRAM.  That's a lot of horsepower for a little board.  And it's only $50, that's not bad at all.

Review: Ro-Bot-X uServotino

Introduction

Now, for the next in a series of reviews on Ro-Bot-X's boards. This one is on the beta version of the uServotino. It is an ATMEGA328 custom board with the Arduino bootloader pre-installed. 

The Kit

Ro-Bot-X's boards are usually available in three options.

Ro-Bot-X Board Reviews

 

Introduction

Recently, Ro-Bot-X send me three boards to evaluate. I had previously ordered his Robot Builder's Shield V1, and commented with some constructive feedback and a review on it after using the board for Penny.

Hi everyone, This is my most recent project. It is a robot which uses two cheap drills’ motors, that I bought a while ago for my tank. I didn’t like using … Read more
This is a really nice protoboard i found on Sparkfun. It basically is a standard perfboard, but every single hole is connected to the other ones on it. The cool … Read more
