We have designed and built a new open hardware/ software board that lets miniaturized robots communicate and at the same time obtain the range and bearing of the source of emission. The open E-puck Range & Bearing board improves an existing infrared relative localization/communication software library (libIrcom) developed for the e-puck robot based on its on-board infrared sensors. A model of the board perception is presented. The board allows the robots to have an embodied communication and not to depend on any centralized system. The communication system is therefore scalable and robots are fully autonomous. Finally, an alignment experiment demonstrates the use and capabilities of the board.
