ROS runs well on ubuntu linux; so you really want to find an SBC that can run ubuntu. If you want to use the newest ROS (Indigo) then you need an SBC that can run Ubuntu 14.04

If you can run Linux on the board you should be able to compile ROS from source on the board or cross-compile to that target.

Hi, I'm using also a pc/104 (advantech PCM-3362) with ROS indigo with no problem.

  • make sure to choose a PC/104 with ix86 CPU architecture in order to be able to install ubuntu and ROS with no source code compilation.

The only thing that i came across was, when i try to run rviz it notify me that doesnt support hardware openGL so i switched to software with just a simple command. This has to do with the embedded graphics but you can choose a PC/104 with hardware openGL. For me doesnt really matters because the PC is on a autonomous robot.
