While I do not have this particular board, I am pretty sure that
unless there is data coming FROM the PC at the time, then the BX does
not care (or even know) if the PC is connected or not.

I think that sometimes the term "development" board is misleading. It
is not ust for development. Maybe it is better called "rapid
development interface" board.

All you have to do is get good power to the board, and it will be
mobile.

Hey Guys!

I am building an autonomous rc car robot . I have a CMUCAM2 camera, A
Traxxas Emax monster truck, and a BasicX-24 dev board. The BasicX is
hooked up to my PC and is talking to my CMUCAM2 AND MOTORS.
Can the BasicX-24 board be disconnected from the PC to stand on its
own.? Can I make my robot run autonomously around the yard with only a
BasicX-24 dev board? Do I need some other robot controller to do this?

Regards, Patrick
