I'm currently working on a project involving the motion of a truck by giving commands and simulating the same in software and then hooking them together and analysing their motion and optimising their performance and checking collision avoidance and other parameters and I 'm currently using basic stamp 2 processor and have plans to use TINI as it also has networking capabilities and it will aid in my work but I would like to know how useful it is in the robotic appliances as I feel that if it would be useful in motion and control I can rool all into one chip and use TINI.

The TINI is a heck of a lot more capable than a
stamp. Plus, you get to develop in Java which
makes things a lot easier because your development
setup is just your desktop machine - Java runs
everywhere. The drawback of using TINI for robotics
applications is that draws a lot of power compared to
other embedded solutions. If you have the power to
spare, go right ahead. But if you need to run everything
off of AA cells, you might want to think twice.

On the other hand, an advantage of the stamp is
that you can do real-time things that would be
impossible on the TINI without external circuitry.
