the Robot Construction Kit
Until now you have been writing down detailled instructions on how to bind components together using a Ruby script. After this tutorial you will be able to use the modelling capabilities of Rock’s system management layer which allows you to describe the system you want to run and let the system management layer do the rest of the work, such as connecting components. There are multiple benefits to running systems using such a model-based layer. Among those:
This series of tutorials will introduce you to Rock’s advanced system management tools. This tutorial builds upon the results of the previous tutorials, and in particular Simulate a Robot and Adding a Joystick into the Mix, or that you at least installed the tutorial results. See the bottom of this page for instructions on how to do so.
The tutorial itself will use Rock’s system management layer to perform the same task than was previously done using a Ruby script. Further tutorials will then introduce some tooling that this layer offers, and go towards examples with more complex systems.
