Behavior-based systems have proven to be a robust and fast method for the control of mobile robots. As we have shown in a previous paper, the implementation of certain parts of such networks on a FPGA is beneficial for the system. In this paper, we will further evaluate the existing design rules of the iB2C-architecture for their usage on FPGAs and present a modified exemplary system for the calculation of the inverse kinematics of a robot arm, which is tailored for the implementation on a FPGA. Furthermore, the differences of the original and the modified approach are discussed and further use-cases are presented.
