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...
