Rugged Linux powered video serving robot remote controlled over internet

[ Thanks to J00p34 for this link. ]

"This is the ranger SRV robot. It's a rugged robot based on the surveyor open source robot. It can be remote controlled over the internet or programmed for autonomous missions.

"Is a nice piece of work in itself, supporting several control modes, the little unit can crawl around at around one foot per second. Its wireless receiver streams video to the web, and you can control and monitor the bot with any major operating system or via a web browser. If you don't feel like taking manual control of the surveyor, it can do fine by himself driving around, navigating obstacles, and even communicating with others of his kind via IR."
