Swarm Robots Using the Idiotware Shield (Advanced)

Swarm robotics is a new approach to the coordination of multi-robot systems which consist of large numbers of simple physical robots.

In this project, we are attaching two robotic vehicles to the Idiotware Shield, along with an ultrasonic sensor which detects obstacles. Once an obstacle is detected by a robot, it notifies the second robot using the mesh radio.
