These robots utilise PC/104 cards for onboard processing, in conjunction with Wireless LAN devices to provide communications for control and telemetry. The combination of a PC compatible controller and standard proprietary TCP/IP driver software means that each robot is (literally) a node on a high bandwidth Wireless Local Area Network. The most recent additions to the Linuxbot Robots are an IBM Microdive for program storage and a PC104 Firewire Card for Digital Video Applications
