This workspace type has a Misty I Developer Edition by Misty Robotics. It is lifted, so the wheels are free to move while the center of the body is fixed. There is one webcam attached and visible from the device file /dev/video0. Every workspace instance includes an offboard host (x86_64 Linux) on the same network as the robot.

Note that the Misty I Developer Edition is superseded by the Misty II Field Trial robot.
