Basic Features

OpenCR1.0 (Open-source Control module for ROS) is an open source robot controller embedded with a powerful MCU from the ARM Cortex-M7 line-up. The hardware, software, schematics, PCB Gerber, BOM, and firmware source codes of the OpenCR1.0, the main controller used in the official ROS education platform TurtleBot3, are accessible and open to the public. Supports RS-485 and TTL to control the Dynamixels, and offers UART, CAN and a variety of other communication environment, development tools such as Arduino IDE are available as well. It has the advantage of being able to operate more powerfully when used with a host controller such as SBC (Single Board Computer).It provides various exclusive sources based on ROS, so that you can maximize the functions of OpenCR1.0 when using ROS.

    Pros:
    + Great controller option for the new line of X-dynamixels (though the options are limited)
    + Convenient powering options (I like the on board T-connector)
    + A great integrated IMU (one of the better ones I have used)
    + Built in sound is suprisingly useful for debugging and boot sequence notifications

    Cons:
    - Needing to hit buttons to put in programming mode is inconvenient and made worse by being hard to hit on the board.
    - Clock timers are prone to memory crashes issues
    - Upload time is very long for even simple sketches
    - Very very expensive board
