We have designed and built a set of miniature robots and developed a distributed software system to control them. We present experimental results on a surveillance taskin which multiple robots patrol an area and watch for motion. We discuss how the limited communication bandwidth affects robot performance in accomplishing the task and analyze how performance depends on the number of robots that share the bandwidth.
