While the design is still being worked on. I can provide a few details for those who are curious. The robot will be a biped and will be powered by batteries charged by solar panels. When the power drops too low, the robot will "rest" until the batteries recharge.
A laptop running Linux will be used to control the robot. The control software will be developed in Java and may be backwardly compatible with Windows (if possible).
A parallel port CCD camera will be used to provide the robot with vision. Navigation will consist of following a person wearing a hat of a particular color.
