  • It looks like someone already did it, so it's definitely possible!

    From what I understood, Aldebaran provides a .NET API for Nao, there is an example here:

    This looks nice, if you already know C# it should be easy to integrate this in RDS.

  • The best thing would be to dounload and install RDS 4. You'll find a folder full of tutorials in

    Microsoft Robotics Dev Studio 4\samples\RoboticsTutorials

    Start with those. RDS has a learning curve, but IMO the payoff is absolutley worth the climb. I don't believe RDS has support for NAO robots now. Writing RDS services for NAO would be a great way to learn the platform !

    I wish I could recommend this page:

    http://www.microsoft.com/robotics/#Learn

    But it doesn't seem to work.
