Roaming robot home station (R-Homes)
One of the largest issues with robotics is power, without which nothing can run. The home station is designed to alleviate this issue in a couple ways.

  1. Solar powered charging station. –

  2. Communications Relay – one of the biggest drains on a system is wireless communication, especially over long distances. By acting as a signal relay your robots only have to communicate to the nearest R-Home and not all the way back to your base of operations.  when you use multiple R-Homes within range of each other they automatically form a wireless mesh that gives you extended coverage.  Your controller system at your home base automatically recognizes when new R-Homes come online and dynamically routes traffic over the most efficient route.
