I am a student and a newbie to freeRTOS, in my class they asked us to do a project which is creating a propulsion board, that should drive a 2 wheels based Robot. This board may, communicate with the hosted robot which will be able to move it via CAN. And I use a wireless zigbee network to drive it wirelessly via an external joystick (which can be fixed on the hand), which contains an accelerometer to enable driving the base by movement on your hands. The board should send constently information about its position and speed to the joystick which displays it on an LCD display.
Well, i started by collecting the needed hardware, and i’ve chosen for both boards an STM32 micro-controller which is an ARM Coretex-M3 based, and contains all the needed peripherals.
As you can see, the application will need multitasking, and real synchroniza
