The Inception of Tron

When I began researching multi-robot communication I came across this quote from the CMU’s Fire website:

“The XBee radio works for multi-robot communication because it has built-in configurations for basic point-to-point communications, but also is natively capable of running mesh networks of point-to-multipoint. This allows a single controller to send and receive messages, theoretically, with up to 65,000 different units. The XBee can interface with a personal computer via a USB port, so in theory you could also have a single PC control multiple robots and also have real time feedback returning to the PC. The RFID technology can be used to allow a robot to communicate its location to other robots in the area.
