What is Robot Control?
Robot Control is a utility that allows a user to monitor sensor data and remotely control a robot from a client workstation by utilizing the serial port on the Handyboard.† The client and server code are written in java, and the robot client code uses the IC libraries.† This first version contains a server that can connect to a robot on the serial line.† Although it has not been tested with multiple robots, it is possible to use a wireless transceiver connected to the serial port along with multiple robots with only minor code adjustments.† The client for now is just a local client running on the same machine as the server.† The client allows a user to observe the sensor data of a robot.† Sonar data is graphically displayed in a grid and all other information is displayed in a list and there is a control panel to allow the user to remotely control the robotís movements.†
