Our work targets small mobile computers with a Bluetooth wireless link. Embedded in cheap robots with data rich sensors, our target does not have enough processing power to do the required analysis on sensor data. We propose the use of parallel processing. In this paper we outline DynaMP, a dynamic message passing architecture. Using an ad-hoc network with(More)
The area of collective and cooperative behaviour in swarm robots is an exciting field of study. Recent technological and economic developments have made it possible to build medium to large scale swarms of quite sophisticated mobile robots. We review recent mobile computing technologies and describe our architecture for a swarm of tri-wheeled robots that(More)
Middleware is the software that typically sits between applications and the operating system in distributed computing systems. As robotics components become more sophisticated and more commodity priced many of the difficult but interesting problems in programming robotic behaviour can be located in a smart middleware. We discuss middleware programming(More)
