mercoledì 25 marzo 2009 01:19Hi All I was wondering if I wanted to build a robot that can be programmed by MSRS or VPL what is the cheapest hardware configuration I need…
Would some one be able to show me a schemmatic?
I would like to controll it via blue tooth RS232 and it will have about 12 DOF and about 12 sensors My question is:
How will this software program a micro controller?
And what is the cheapest micro controller needed?

I think you might have the wrong idea about RDS. It does not allow you to program microcontrollers.
What you need to do is choose a microcontroller yourself, then write some code on the microcontroller to talk to its serial port.
On the RDS side you have to write a service that talks to the microcontroller, also using a serial port.
Then you can attach serial to Bluetooth devices at each end to make the connection.
The service that you write for RDS will appear in VPL automatically.
P.S. You might get some suggestions and hardware support from other members of the forum.

Thank you very mutch for thr reply...
It seems that i am still not getting far what i wanted to do... L after writing a program on VPL such as if button pressed then light led... my microcontroller is a PIC ... how do mount this program to the development board or see the source code that will be compiled to a robot sutch as the NXT, SERIALIZER WL OR Parallax Boe - Bot Robot Kit. So that I understand how does the VPL talk to the hardware....

Then you can write a service in C# on your PC that communicates with the robot using the serial port. In effect, the RDS service remotely controls the robot.
We supply services for the LEGO NXT for example, but what this code does is talk to the NXT "brick" using Bluetooth. There is no code that we load into the brick, so there is no source code for you to see that runs on the robot itself. All the LEGO NXT services are in C# and run on a PC under Windows.
