Announcing the Beta Release of the IPRE Scribbler Services for Microsoft Robotics Studio

A new phase of the IPRE project is underway with the release of the Scribbler services for MSRS. Although it is only a beta release, I think it is a good foundation for what is to come. By integrating the Myro API into MSRS, IPRE has access to a wide range of new robots, including a full physics based 3D simulator.

This release includes:
• A Scribbler base service that handles the Bluetooth link to the robot
• A realistic simulation entity of robot, which can, for the most part, be used interchangeably with the physical hardware
• A set of sensor services faithfully implement the Robotics Studio generic robot contracts
• Three high-level example services in C# (DrawSquare, LightSeek, and Wander)
• Batch files for each service for quick and easy evaluation and testing
• The MSRS supported version of Iron Python (RC1)
• Two example programs in IronPython
• A Myro interface and it's implementation for the Scribbler (Only the AbstractMovement interface is defined at this time)
• A preliminary Myro programming environment (Currently only in C#)

The end goal is to provide the students with a simple python interface just like they have now with Myro, but with the power of Robotics Studio and .NET behind the scenes.
