Text from Robot Slide Series insert -
"Pluto was the first in a series of smart, autonoomous robots designed at Carnegie Mellon University. Pluto and its descendants, Neptune and Uranus, had vision, sonar, and on-board computers for route planning and navigation. Pluto's three fully-steerable wheels proved hard to control, so the robot was retired in 1984. The COmputer Museum collection"
