The iRobot rig was designed to allow students to explore the concepts of teleoperation of robots, accuracy of sensors, localisation and mapping.

Using a web-based interface, students are able to remotely control the robot and observe its movements, record data provided by the different sensors and compare said sensor data.

Additionally, students can test control algorithms developed in the robot simulation software \"Stage\" by using the robot control software \"Player\" to control the iRobot create.

Each iRobot rig is monitored by an IP camera with pan and tilt functions - providing an overview of the maze.
