Broker oriented solution can handle fast and reliable communication issue between robot and controller. A number of users can communicate in a flexible way if they use broker server between each other. In this research XML-RPC driven UCR Broker was introduced as a flexible solution to satisfy reliable and lower latency in robot control. Additionally UCR Broker can provide communication between various protocols such as Bluetooth, ZigBee, UDP and TCP. As a result of this work UCR Common Broker library was designed. Using this library, developers can easily create robotics related applications that provides flexibility and scalability in a communication.
