What we wnat is an application that takes about
100-120 MB disk storage space and 128MB memory
footprint on top of linux. This communicates with a
microcontroller which does some image procesing etc.
The criteria for doing image processing is input from
the user to the appln. on linux which inturn gives it
to the microcontroller. All this in a dusty industrial
environment.Amy I have ur sugesstions.
