WifiBotST: Driving WifiBots with Smalltalk
As part of the VerySmallTalk project, we investigate control architectures for robots. One of our main application domain is robotic Urban Search And Rescue (USAR). Our goal is to have a fleet of mobile robots that will collaborate in order to autonomously explore some area. Currently, we experiment using a fleet of wifibots. We implemented in Smalltalk a framework that allows to both drive robots and build simulations. We first used Squeak, and switched since october 2008 to Pharo. Hopefully, we'll participate to the RoboCupRescue or a similar competition some time in the future.
Since february 2009, we started exploring the use of Player/Stage. We contribute to the PlayerST project a good complement to WifiBotST.
Squeak code for both driving and simulating WifiBots
Squeak VM for WifiBots
This VM does contain only a subsuet of Squeak plugins. Netwoking support is provided to allow running UbiquiTalk
- squeak 3.9-8 mipsel.ipk
- Instal: ipkg install squeak_3.9-8_mipsel.ipk
- Uninstall: ipkg remove squeak
- squeak-vm.zip : Same content as the IPK package but in a ZIP format. The install is not as clean as with IPK, still one can run Squeak.
