DEVICE SERVER FOR A MINIATURE MOBILE ROBOT

Metin Ozkan, Osman Parlaktuna

Abstract

This paper describes a device server for a miniature mobile robot. Generally, miniature robots have low-size memory and relatively slow microcontroller to realize complicated tasks. Therefore, a device server for small sized mobile robots is proposed with the intention of increasing their capabilities. The proposed software system runs on the microcontroller of the robot, and serves a collection of sensors and actuators over serial rf transceiver to authorized clients. The system has modularity and multi-tasking capability. The proposed system is implemented on a Z-80 microprocessor-controlled mobile robot. It is shown that proposed system is capable of serving one client and two processes.
