I've borrowed a home-built telepresence robot from the UoL that was left behind a door for the last five years.

I partially dismantled it to get the batteries out (to recharge) and the board with the computer on. There were lots of wires connecting the boards. (photos of the different connections are attached)

We need to plug the computer into the hard disk and run it to check that it still functions and what its features are.

The code (based on ROS) is on github here: https://github.com/smARTLab-liv/mitro

Then we need to make an assessment of whether it can be pressed into service, returned to the dept or broken down for parts.

Alternatively, I am attempting to find someone who is willing to sell me a Double2 robot. which is proving quite difficult.

I am happy to help with at least with the ROS side of things!
I have seen the ROS packages were upgraded but not tested to the Hydro version and catkin, the second version of the compiler for ROS. Currently the versions used by most of the people are Indigo, Kinetic and Melodic. But this shouldn't be a problem as far as we can ssh into it!
