'[PIC]: SALVO RTOS robot examples'

Does anyone know of any robots (non commercial)
programmed with the salvo rtos?  Especially ones with
code?  Either that or a great tutorial on using it?

Sorry, all the ones I know of were programmed without code.

Um, the obvious answer would be to ask the Salvo people.

You should also step back and ask yourself why you think you want an RTOS
on a PIC, and if so, what limited set of RTOS-like features you really
want.  Despite the hype from Salvo and their habit of belittleing any code
that doesn't use an RTOS, it is still doubtful these are of any real
advantage on small processors like PICs.  I haven't seen anything yet that
hasn't been handled quite nicely by a simple foreground event loop
architecture.  The closest I've gotten to RTOS-like features is creating a
psuedo-thread for handling an input stream such as from a host via the
UART.  If that's all you need, you can get it for free.  See the
HOS_CMD.ASPIC module of the HOS PIC project at
http://www.embedinc.com/pic/hos.htm.  That same project also has an
example of a simple event loop in the HOS_MAIN.ASPIC module.

What is wrong to be first guy who used Salvo for robot design? ;)
You'll hit two birds with one stone learning that cooperative
task switcher and some robot related theory as well.

Sounds like some good academical research.

WBR Dmitry.


PS. It is not preemptive on my knowledge.
