[04.09 - current activity involves work on Oliver and RoXI]
Project Roland is a long-term on-going project with the purpose of building a set of robots large enough to run around the house continuously, controlled via RF-link from a central computer location, and performing mapping, sensing, monitoring, and other interesting functions.
All robots are intended to have 2-way RF-links using Zigbee, for control and monitoring from a home-station computer, as well as having autonomous modes for individual operation. At least one robot carries a wireless RF video cam.
Project Roland uses the RoXI - Robot External Interface Windows-based GUI for central control and monitoring.
