Hi Jon and everyone!
I bought one of your bus interface board from HUV.com. It works nicely for me. That works through USB, I wanted to know if I wanted to tweak and also be able to send wireless signals through it, would that be possible? If yes, I would appreciate a link or something that would explain me how.
Thanks!

To do wireless, you need something like a gumstix verdex on the robot, that talks to the USB bus interface. The gumstix can do wifi using one of its expansion boards. You can write a simple script that uses socat to interface between a socket at a 1.0 Mbps virtual serial port on the gumstix.

Then you can run your "brain" on your PC, and connect to the socket on the gumstix to talk to the bus.

Its not cheap, but it works - we use this approach in BrainBot...
