  • Hello,

    I know only two(on April it will be three) books and one has online ressources.

    This book Professional Micorosoft Robotics Developer Studio by Kyle Johns and Trevor Taylor have some examples that comes with it.
    http://www.promrds.com/
    On Codeplex are the newest examples for 2008. From there you can follow/search some MRDS projects.
    http://promrds.codeplex.com/

    There is another book is Programming Microsoft® Robotics Studio (PRO-Developer).
    I haven't read it but it's named here in some tips you find with the search funktion.

    The third book:
    Robot Development Using Microsoft Robotics Developer Studio: Intelligent Robot Simulation and Programming

    p.s.: How usefull it is to learn C# through Robotic Studio is a goot question. I wouldn't try this.
    Because C# and all the books for it goes a certain way to learn it. Like: C#->.NET->Hello World-> Methods-> Structured Programming->Classes->Inheritance->... many more.

    MRDS Books is more going like this: Thats all possible-> We use CCR & DSS for it and they work like this-> Yes we use C# ->Hello Word as Service -> My first simulated robot-> Drive Left-> Drive Right-> Control Your Robot-> Let your robot control itself... -> You could use VPL -> Simulation Properties -> Build a robot ! (no aktually that not in there) ^^

  • The best way to learn RDS is to program services. You can use the simulator that comes with RDS so you don't have to buy a robot.

    The primary language for RDS is C#.

    Please refer to the online documentation (which is also included in the package as a Help file). There are also some books on the subject.
