We have described ongoing work toward a remote robotics research site which allows repeatable remote experimentation on multiple mobile robots. Our system consists of multiple mobile robots hosting on-board Unix workstations, and approximates the Phase One functionality described in Section 2 above. As we move toward the ability to conduct ``real science'' via networked, remote colonies of taskable robots, we envision applications in such domains as agriculture, environmental monitoring, and deep-space exploration.
