* make robotics and embedded control accessible and fun
* stimulate cross-field learning and collaboration
* leverage modularity and reuse to get more done, quicker

Technical goals
* develop generalised physics model for eg computing optimal PID controlled motor outputs
* decouple high-update-rate sensors from lower-rate output control
* employ OpenCV for visual tracking/SLAM/feature detection
* build lean tracked (land) vehicle
* build lean quad-rotor (air) vehicle
* use a shared, modular code-base and electronics platform (via BeagleBoard)
