MultiRobot Hardware

Welcome to the homepage for the development of the ROBOTC Multi-Robot project. This page is the central location for all materials developed during the Multi-Robot Research Project. The developed materials will include examples, slideshows, labs, experiments, challenges and videos teaching concepts and lessons around Multi-Robot Communications.

The technology goal of the Multi-Robot project is to build commands and utilities into ROBOTC to allow students and hobbyists to learn more about Multi-Robot communication technology and concepts. The project will focus on three different hardware platforms: The LEGO Mindstorms NXT, the VEX Robotics VEX Cortex and the Arduino family of processors. In order to achieve communication between similar and different hardware systems, the Multi-Robot project is based around using the Xbee Wireless Radio created by Digi International. Using low-cost carrier boards, users can use the same radio system on any supported platform.

The educational goal of the project is to bring advanced concepts such a multi-robot coordination, path planning and task distribution and simplify the ideas to a pre-college level. By successfully doing this, we will be able to allow more students to become familiar with the future of robots and having multiple robots working together to complete complex tasks and activities.
