Feral Robot for Public Authoring -- robot cars in the park


We can't say we're quite hip with all the lingo involved in "Feral Robots" and "Public Authoring" but we do know that a couple of hacked RC cars took their place among backpack wearing pigeons last week in London and did some pollution monitoring of their own. The main bot was equipped with air quality and carbon dioxide sensors, and had GPS and WiFi on board to track and send the information it picked up. The other bot had a "solvent vapours" sensor, but was mainly there to hang out since it didn't have WiFi. There's a video of the romp in the park, but the creators are still mulling over feral bot's air quality findings.
