HARDWARE INDEPENDENT ARCHITECTURE FOR AUTONOMOUS COLABORATIVE AGENTS

Guillermo Glez. de Rivera, Ricardo Ribalda, Kostadin Koroutchev, José Colás, Javier Garrido

Abstract

We describe a modular mobile robot test system. This architecture allows easy inclusion of user hardware and communication modules. A client-server, XML/RPC based approach makes the system easy to program and neutral in respect to the operating system and the programming language used. The hardware modules are included using a hardware independent protocol. This feature of the system makes it very flexible and easy to use and reconfigure. The architecture by itself has support for many different communication modalities.
