Max Robo Server

The Max Robot Server is a simple program developed to run on a laptop based robot. The server will allow a client to connect over a wireless Ethernet network and communicate with the robot.

The server also features a basic like scripting language (Zagros Basic) to develop missions. The current version features the following commands:

forward - commands robot to move forward
backward - commands robot to move backwards
left - commands robot to rotate left
right - commands robot to rotate right

The client application allows manual control of the robot with the basic FORWARD ,BACKWARD, LEFT, RIGHT and STOP commands. The client will also

A user can also load, list and run mission programs. Messages from the robot (MAX) and the other clients are also displayed through the client application.

Notepad can be used to edit the mission programs. This example program will open communication with the HC11 and start the robot moving forward. The program will read the encoder count (sensor 11,a) and store the value in a. The program will loop until the robot has traveled 250 inches, then the robot will be stopped and the communication channel closed.

A new OCX was developed to allow Visual Basic programs to easily act as Max Server clients. This example system includes a Visual Basic user interface and a RoboRealm basic vision system.
