I am a student at Rice University and a former member of the UT-Austin robotics & Automation Society . My interest started in the FIRST competition in highschool. I've worked on various projects such as multi agent Robotic Soccer (RoboCup) and Unmanned Aerial vehicles (IARC). I help mentor FIRST FRC teams 118 and 624. I've worked with NASA Robotics Group , OTC-uTexas and ARL-Texas I also keep an updated journal on my Personal Andrew Lynch Website

Gumstix is also quickly becoming the new standard for embedded linux due to their modules. Hopefully we will soon intergrate gumstix with Player to make controlling complex robots a very common practice for the average user.

Now, acroname or pololu needs to take this boards and integrate with working copies of player ready and motors/sensor packages.

If anyone knows of these initiatives, I would be happy to assist. Right now I'm working on a gumstix module involving a zworld rabbit 3400 with h-bridges and a simple sensor package.

pyro with their new live CD is becoming a huge success for robotics using player/stage. Now even someone who knows nothing about linux can basically program a robot to do complicated tasks such as track a ball!

The wildfire board from steriod micro seems very interesting, definitely tough competition for gumstix and xscale in terms of price and benefits. I am curious to find where I can learn more about discussion from users about development on the board.
