Needed help in VB2005 to operate movement of animated image using sensors... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all, I'm told to do a project using VB2005... I managed to create one application( moving image using keyboard keys)  with the help from msdn.. However, right now, my boss wants me to operate the moving image, using external component (sensor). I was thinking if there's anyone out there, who understand what I'm trying to say and had done something like what I'm doing ..

  • Hi Gene,

    I'm not sure about the details of your project, but I'll take a stab at it.  First of all, if you are not already a Microsoft Robotics Developer Studio programmer, this might not be the best path for you.  RDS is a great tool for robotics, but the learning curve is steep.  I'm afraid it might be overkill, like trying to swat a fly with a sledgehammer.

    Make no mistake, RDS could certainly do this, and I would attempt it just for the kicks.  :-)

    You might be better off writting a Windows application or even a Windows service that interfaced with your sensor's API.

    Good luck,
