My team for next year has been assigned the project
"This project will focus on how ‘systems within systems’ can be demonstrated in an uncertain environment
We will aim to show how it is possible for the larger system to monitor, and reconfigure the smaller systems when necessary"
Meaning bascally that each system will be busy doing something, but the PC is monitoring them to see whether they are doing the right thing at the right speed etc. If not, it will send 'correction' commands to the robots in question, and perhaps also to the other robots so that they can go and 'help' that robot if needed.
There is lots of talk about using Lego NXT because it is kind of a 'perfect' system to start doing things with.
However, this is very expensive, and may not prove difficult or bespoke enough for the project. I was thinking also, just now, about using some sort of radio link, simply sending information to all the robots, but then the robots can select what information belongs to them, if you see what I mean.
I was just wondering what you guys would do for this project, like, what sort of robots/communication you would use. i would be very interested to find out!
(I guess, the question really is, what do people use for robosoccer?)
