Urban Surveillance Research on the NetBeans Platform

Yet another NetBeans Platform application is part of the Centibots project. This project, a.k.a. the "100 Robots Project", funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), is aimed at developing new technology to support the coordinated deployment of as many as 100 robots for missions such as urban surveillance.

And guess what? They used the NetBeans Platform: "For the GUI we chose the NetBeans Platform. NetBeans provides us with a plug and play IDE with services common to almost all desktop applications – windows, menus, settings management and storage, file access and more."


Though the work seems to have been done in and around 2004, the website makes for an interesting read.
