In this paper we describe preliminary results from a collaborative effort between ITAM's Robotics Lab and UCSC's Internetworking Research Group (i-NRG) focusing on extending the Small-Size League RoboCup system architecture. More specifically, our goal is to enable multi-robot collaboration beyond the limits of a soccer field environment. To this end, we have been developing a local vision wireless ad-hoc network architecture that will make it possible for robots to cooperate in carrying out
