So what does multicore processing look like for an invention like the ActivityBot?
Your C program might start a motor function, which makes another core manage the motors to make the robot move. Then, it might call a sensor function so the robot can “see” if there is an obstacle in its path. If an object is detected, your program then might call a music function, which will task other cores with the jobs of fetching songs from an SD card and playing music on an audio jack.
The ActivityBot is just one example of a microcontroller invention. You can use the Activity Board to build other projects or create your own inventions.
