The swarm group from the Bristol Robotics Laboratory has released, as open-hardware, the design of a Linux  extension board for the e-puck robot.  This extension board is based on a 32-bit ARM9 microprocessor and provides wireless network support. It runs an embedded Linux operating system, along with a Debian-based port of the root file system stored in a Micro SD card.  The extended e-puck robot platform provides a powerful and flexible platform for experimental swarm robotics research. All design files, together with full setup instructions and code images, can be downloaded from . A reference paper describing the design and its applications can be found here
