This project is an exercise in cooperative robotics for my CSUN gradute project. Robots can communicate with another robot and/or the Mars wireless device. The Mars wireless device may communicate with any robot and the Earth wireless device. The Earth wireless device can only communicate with the Mars wireless device.
Robots will have to cooperate to complete a task. This means that no one robot can complete the entire task by itself. Some robots will be "killed" or crippled before they begin their task and the remaining robots must figure who remains and what each remaining member is capable of and then work together to complete their task. The Mars wireless device can tell the robots what to do if needed.
The Earth wireless device will relay info to/from the Mars wireless device to/from the PC computer which runs GUI software to display robot status and deliver commands to Mars if needed.
