Introduction and Installations



Pioneer P3-DX robots act as the server in a client-server environment. The low level details of mobile robotics are managed by servers embodied in the operating system software (ARCOS, AROS, P2OS) of the robot’s micro-controller [14]. The client software that provides the high level control must run on a computer connected to the micro-controller. This can either be the on-board PC that communicates with it directly through a serial connection, or via a remote networked PC, which requires a server program to be running on the robot PC, providing the communication link between the remote PC and the micro-controller. The first scenario is shown diagrammatically in Figure 1.1 below.
