At the left you see the main controller is installed (Beagleboard) under the powered USB hub (also provides internet connectivity).  To its left, the Phidget LCD 8-8-8 controllers, and the controllers power supply.

In the middle you see two lithium-ion battery packs.  To the right the Basic Stamp 2SX and a L298 based motor controller.  Further to the left, the power supply for the motors, servos and a voltage sensor.

More details on the various sub-systems later…
