Bruce Boyes, CEO of Systronix, describes href="http://www.trackbot.systronix.com/">TrackBot, a small robotic device
with built-in sensor modules that provide beaconing, obstacle avoidance, spatial awareness, communication, and navigation. Add a SunSPOT device to
TrackBot, and the result is a powerful but affordable strategy for large-scale deployments in swarms and collaborative robotic behavior. (See also TrackBot on YouTube.)
