The mini-robots are designed to develop techniques which can be used to cooperate in multiple robots systems and to distribute sensing robot network in a greater scale. Each mini-robot is entirely constructed of off-the-shelf components. The robot, which is approximate a penny size, is small that every components which the robot implements are tiny. These components provide mobility, radio communication and actuating ability to the robots. The software to control each robot is written in C Code, and the application detail is abstracted away by the developer. A high level human computer interface provides the access for the user to input the command to the robots through the wireless protocol. The software is capable of being extended in a larger-scale system and being implemented into similar types of robots for various purposes.
