This is last years information, but I ran accros a reference, and do not remember seeing anything about it here. 40 minute video. Would be fun to have one of those PR2 robots to play with!

Google I/O 2011: Cloud Robotics

The talk mentioned being able to use ROS with Arduino, so I looking up this information:

ARM and ROS

Not enough to be able to build a complete bot running ROS on an Arduino, but enough to make it easy to use Arduino as part of a bigger system using ROS. A much more complete implementation will run on Andriod [in Java].

These are being taught by one of the Standford professors that taught the machine learning course that I posted last fall, plus a prof from U of Virginia.

CS 101: BUILDING A SEARCH ENGINE
CS 373: PROGRAMMING A ROBOTIC CAR

See Udacity or directly to CS 101 and CS 373

The robotic car course adds to the previous course, but the previous courses is not a requirement.  CS 373 assumes strong programming knowledge, but CS 101 does not need any previous programming background.
