Hi Koen,

That is for this kind of configuration (running ROS on embedded systems) 
that the use of the RTOS RTEMS would be really great :)

RTEMS has a really smaller memory footprint, it is simpler than Linux, 
it is real-time and POSIX.

It would certainly run smoother than Linux on medium/low performance 
embedded System-on-Chips.

(This is in relation with the earlier post about ROS port to RTEMS 
during the Googler Summer of Code 2011) ;)
