Cost

The primary goal of the original flockbot project was recently achieved. This was to decrease the cost to about $500.

Our current goal is to finalize the API and prepare the code for release to the community with support for myriad different scenarios. We currently support autonomous behaviors through a Daemon that connects to the internet. We have a C-language API on board for autonomous applications, however, any socket-aware system can connect with the daemon to control the Flockbots.

Construction

We are presently using custom-cut PVC for the two platforms and a cut and bent metal frame for the IR sensors. Our future enhancement, which has recently been designed in CAD, is to replace the IR frame with a precision 3d printed component. We are also exploring alternate materials and precision cutting options for the two base plates.
