As promised to the nice people at Robosavvy here's some video footage of our Hector Lightweight UGV based on the Wild Thumper inside the RoboCup Rescue Arena in Istanbul. Note that work on this platform continues and that what can be seen on the videos was put together quickly for demonstration purposes. Some more info can be found in the video descriptions.

looks like an FPS game without the explosions :)

Can you please post some specs about the autonomous setup ?

Wow, great videos! :) But IMHO it will be a lot more interesting in autonomous mode.

What's still missing in the video is the IMU, but this will be added shortly. The idea is to have a platform which provides basic capabilities (battery supply, attitude estimation, ROS integration, motor control etc.) while having the complete top plate free for mounting different of payloads.
