4. Hardware Setup¶
A4MCAR is featured with two controllers: (1)- High-level controller controller that is equipped with a Raspberry Pi, with applications ported to Raspbian OS on ARM Cortex A53 processor, and (2)- Low-level controller based on an XMOS xCORE-200 ExplorerKIT development kit that is equipped with a 16-core microcontroller.
Development boards in A4MCAR are interfaced with many peripherals for different purposes. A brief look of how devices are interfaced and low-level schematics are given below for reference.
