Command Mode Programs
Command mode programs are executed by a PC which controls
the Trilobot through the serial port. This PC can be located
on-board the Trilobot or off-board with a tether cable or wireless modem.
See the embedded PC for high level on-board
control of the Trilobot.
This QBasic program allows the user to control most functions of
the robot using simple keystrokes. Sensors can be read and the
drive and servo motors can be controlled. This program can
also be used as a base to create larger programs.
This QBasic example program continuously displays the results of the
whiskers, sonar, battery voltage, compass, light and temperature sensors.
This QBasic example program is similar to the TriloGuard program which
uses the PIR sensor to detect motion and respond.
This QBasic example program is a command mode version of the
TriloWander program which causes the robot to move around
avoiding objects using whiskers and the sonar range finder.
This QBasic subroutine sends a string to the auxilary serial
port. Simplifies sending of speech strings when using
the optional speech synthesizer.
