ROS on Rock64 board?
#1
Having owned all three versions of the Pi plus Beaglebone Black, I'm now looking for something a little more powerful than a Pi 3 to run ROS for a robot build.  I can't justify the cost of an Nvidia TX2 or something like that yet. I use Parallax Propeller chips to interface with the motors and sensors in real-time.
Two boards that have caught my interest are the ASUS Tinker Board and the Pine64 Rock64 Board.
 
Has anyone had ROS running on a Rock64 board, or is that a long way off?
Thanks for your time.

My understanding ROS is a layer ontop of Ubuntu Linux. There is no ROS on ROCK64 board yet and if any developer interest to port ROS on ROCK64, we are willing to provide hardware.

Thanks for the reply!  Yes, the latest ROS usually runs on top of an Ubuntu or Debian installation.  Do you think the Rock64 board will ever run Ubuntu or Debian?  Or is there no support for this particular CPU in the main kernel?

The ROCK64 board already run Ubuntu and Debian, thanks to ayufan. Here is the github link:
