  1. Yeah, and there are some teams investigating using the kit-supplied Kinect sensor as an on-robot sensor for autonomous and assisted control. It might be possible if the USB data could be routed over the ethernet to the driver station computer; need some USB Host to ethernet adapter. Maybe the ADK-duinos can be adapted to help carry this out.
