Acroname demonstrated Microsoft .NET approach to robotics control at the ASEE (American Society for Engineering Educators) conference in Montreal, Canada in June 2002.
The basic idea of the lab was to get first-hand involvement with writing a simple C# (pronounced C-sharp) application using Microsoft's Visual Studio. The tools provided by Visual Studio allow you to quickly generate a user interface. The participants were then able to manipulate an object written in C# that encapsulated the robot completely.
Using the BrainStem Console, a WinCE device on the robot acted as a server across TCP/IP that the C# application connected to to manipulate and interact with the robot. This approach could be used from anywhere on the internet with a reliable connection to manipulate the robot using this C# application.
An archive that contains the entire project used in the lab and a Word document are available for download that cover the material for the workshop.
