Yellow Jacket and Robot plateform

I've just discovered Ruggeduino and was curious if anyone has used their Yellow Jacket MC?

Trying to find someone experienced answer two questions:

1. Range expected indoors?

2. Is this the best option for connecting the MC's Arduino code to the power of my PC's Processing program?

The idea is to have a mobile robot plateform with an array of censors, but have the brain on the PC, using Processing.

Any help appreciated.

is, it is wifi. As long as it is near an access point, you might be able to control it from anywhere. Depending on your size/price factors, one of the inexpensive mini routers might be a feasible option, only requiring a separate microcontroller for interaction.

As always, thanks.

for indoors a lot less about a 1/3 100m to 150m. 2.4 ghz power is reduced if it has to pass threw something (wall. tree). but in this situation i don't think it will be a problem  to much 

as for the best option for connecting to Processing it's as good as the next thing

So, is 1/3 the guesstamate formula fairly consistent for 2.4 ghz?  And thank you.
