Overview
Millibots are small semi-autonomous and autonomous robots to be deployed by a larger robot or field agent. Current Millibot modules include processing units, motor controllers, sensors, pan/tilt platforms, RF link transceivers. A common serial protocol is planned for inter-modular communications where actuation, sensing and communication processes will run in a distributed fashion.
