The input is much appreciated!

My current plan is to go with the 2 GHz Intel Atom Z550 fitPC2i on which
ros core and the main navigation and path planning stacks will be running.
I'll be using a beagleboard xm with a LI-5M03 camera which is directly
connected to the chips DSP which allows you to get 30 fps at it's max
resolution thanks to a sound working driver that got its way into the
kernel finally. I'll be doing strictly image processing on the BB which
which should get me by.
