Roboni-i has 4 processors and 16 sensors. It makes use of an ATMEL ATmega 1281 processor with sufficient processing capacity to power the robot, its sensors and communication devices. Roboni-i communicates via ZigBee wireless technology with its remote and other robots. It can also interact with a PC through USB. The robot includes touch sensors at its front and rear bumpers and RFID technology allows it to read and write data to the different game accessories. Roboni-i also utilizes Infrared for situational awareness and for ‘shooting’ other robots or infrared-enabled accessories.
Roboni-i’s controller uses an ATMEL ATmega 640 processor and communicates with the robot using ZigBee technology. It is ergonomically designed to fit comfortably in player’s hands and has a custom-made LCD screen for displaying game play status. The controller is designed with two buttons for steering the robot, and two trigger buttons at the front for selecting options or triggering events (e.g. to fire a laser). A slot allows for a dedicated reference card to be inserted for interpreting data displayed on the remote’s LCD.
