[Dprglist] SBC's for Controlling Robot

Should be making the conference tonight so tossing out a question for 

I want to put an SBC on my RVR. The power limitation drawing from the 
RVR is 2.1 amp. The board I was going to us, an UP Board, draws more 
than that. Raspberry Pis approach that limit, also. Beagle board Black 
with WiFi seems a possibility. Another requirement is supporting C++ for 

I am going to put one of the new Oak Dev cameras which will add to the 
power draw and the amount of computing power needed. That eliminates the 
Arduino family.

I suspect I won't be able to work within that power budget but want to 
see if anyone has suggestions.


The accomplishment over the last couple weeks has been programming a 
Sparkfun ESP32 Thing board and my PC to connect over WiFi. Over the WiFi 
I can send commands to the RVR from my desktop system. May have a video 
showing this. But have some Thanksgiving activities to handle which may 
keep me from getting a video done.
