Your advice would be appreciated on the choice of micro-controllers and programming languages for a new outdoors, autonomous mobile robot, already named Nosy. Built to take part in Robo-Magellan type contests (if such were ever to be held in this country!!) this robot would be used to develop new systems and processes as well as 'just for fun'.
I've been through these forums, and similar ones on other boards, but have found no obvious solution. None of the suggestions seem powerful enough for my design.
