article description
This article describes the design and development of a prototype system that allows real time operation of a teleoperated robot over a wireless link using off-the-shelf commercially available wireless network cards. The hardware architecture and the wireless network are described. Performance of the wireless link is evaluated for 802.11b, 802.11g, and MeshNetwork cards. The 802.11g card was found to be unsuitable for the application.
