This paper describes the most popular options that are available developers of intelligent humanoid robots and their advantages and disadvantages. There has never been a wider range of affordable and practical solutions for the developers of intelligent humanoid robots. This paper lists the suitability of the most common options such as microcontrollers, ARM based embedded boards, and x86 based small PCs and how well the meet different design constraints. Using an example from low level vision processing, the paper highlights common pitfalls when including these more complex embedded systems in their robot.
