Hello Team Members,

I am a cadet at West Point leading the EE and CS cadets who are part of
an interdisciplinary group from our school.  This group is competing in the
9th Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition,
Unlike the other schools, who use C++, we are going to use Ada because of
Ada's great support for real-time systems and also, it is our favorite

I have a few questions for Team-Ada to help us get started.

1: We were looking into using the LART
as our computer in our vehicle because of it's low power usage, low weight,
and the coolness factor in putting it together.  Will GNAT work on the LART,
which utilizes Intel's Strongarm processor?

2: Is there a computer better suited for Ada that has a low power
consumption, low weight, and would be fun to put together
(Something Transmeta?)?

3: Have any of you worked on or know of Ada resources for an
unmanned intelligent ground vehicle, frame recognition from
a video camera, or laser modeling.  Just looking for those hard
to find Ada links or references on these topics.

4: Any other suggestions or help?

Thank You,
Cadet Marcus Brakewood
