WLAN Client Bridge : Serves as connector between robot and operator

Colubris Networks is giving a Colubris WLAN Client Bridge 200 to IIT FIRST Robotics, the robotics club at Illinois Institute of Technology, for use in the 20th Annual AMD Jerry Sanders Creative Design Competition, in which 150-pound remote controlled robots will compete against each other to retrieve objects. The bridge will wirelessly connect control and video feeds from its robot to the operator. The video system will let the robot operator see what the robot is seeing, giving the operator greater control over manipulating the objects. The control feed will let the operator receive real-time diagnostic data, which gives steady feedback from the robot's internal systems.
