Robothon - SRS Mini Challenge

Here's a cool website for Robothon - SRS Mini Challenge, a robotics challenge.  One of our internal partners has built a robot based on XPE for this - here are the details he's given me (with personally identifying info removed, of course):

It's built around a Via EPIA 5000 motherboard running XP Embedded with .NET Framework 2.0 Beta 1 off a Compact Flash card.  It can be remote controlled over 802.11b as well as running .NET applications locally.

Its I/O device is an Acroname Brainstem (5 A/D ports, 5 Digital I/O ports, 4 PWM ports, 2 I2C ports).  Its sensors include GPS with WAAS & Logitech QuickCam for image processing.  I'll be adding additional sensors such as a digital compass, MEMS accelerometer, MEMS gyroscope, temperature sensor, and Sharp IR object detectors.  Unfortunately time is short (1 week left) before the Seattle Robotics Society contest, so I'm not such how many of these other sensors I'll get integrated before the contest.

As soon as I get more info, I'll pass it along...

I'm sorry for being intrusive in to your blog. But I am Melissa and I am a mother of two that is just trying to get out of an incredible financial debt. See my hubby is away in Iraq trying to protect this great country that we live in, and I am at home with our two kids telling bill collectors please be patiant. When my husband returns from war we will beable to catch up on our payments. We have already had are 2001 Ford repossessed from the bank, and are now down to a 83 buick that is rusted from front to back and the heater don't work, and tire tax is due in November.

I'm not asking for your pitty because we got our ownselfs into this mess but we would love you and thank you in our prayers if you would just keep this link on your blog for others to view.

God Bless You.
