   Team Capability Matrix (TCM)


The Team Capability Matrix (TCM) is something that is constructed before building any robots  or trying to design the robot application.  The TCM  is used to identify  what  Bluetooth enable devices are potential team members and what set of capabilities each device brings to any solution or  robot design.  Its a good practice  to construct a TCM  prior to getting started on your on team of robots.   Once a TCM is constructed it should be maintained.  An up-to-date  TCM will make it easier to build new projects and will also keep the full capability of your current project easily accessible.  Each potential team member has something to offer that typically the other team members do not have.  This is another benefit of using Bluetooth to build networked robot  applications.  The robots can access capabilities that are not  part of the initial robot kit.  Below is a particle TCM for team D.
