Can I get a kernel?

Good day! My name is Levan, I'm 17 years old. I am fascinated by the writing of the operating system for robots. I wrote the RTOS operating system type, but to make it to the processing multmedia (video, sound) is very difficult. I decided to write the OS does not like RTOS, as usual, using the core Linux. But I do not know it at all possible? Please give me an answer. Thank you very much.

Answer to what question?

Linux has real-time extensions (soft, not hard real-time) that would be adequate for most purposes. As my signature says, "Sometimes real fast is almost as good as real-time" - I have been doing hard real-time system development for 30 years, so I know something of the subject. My grandson uses soft real-time Linux extensions for his UAV's (both fixed-wing and rotary devices - helicopters) navigation and control systems. So far, they work just fine running on both ARM and x86 processors.

In any case, why do you need real-time processing for audio/video tasks? Yes, some such do require the Linux real-time extensions (the audio Jack tools for example), but explain please EXACTLY what you are trying to accomplish.

Hello, dear Rubberman!
My ideas may seem silly to you, and are not appropriate!
I want to build an operating system for robots, which controlled all the processes in the system. I have a lot of my devices on the AVR processors (home automation system, etc.) that work on my RTOS. I would have to gather intelligence of robots that can think for themselves, to see what is happening, and so on, for example, a robot-android. I propose to take the motherboard and set back a GNU / linuh. But that's not what I want. The fact that I do not write programs for computers, I'm doing a complete system, in which no one will be included (for example, except I will not write the software). To do this I need to own the operating system. I originally thought when he wrote RTOS that it will be for robots and for small-scale devices. But I had a craving for big robots.
I understand that I may be somewhere writing nonsense, I'm in school and many still do not understand, if you can pozadavayte me questions, I will try to answer as to which there will not be able to think.
Thank you!
