i got started on the BoeBot from parallax.... over ten years ago, there are tutorials/lessons that start with the very basics and teach you programming and electronics

if you are designing a robot that will follow a defined path providing a reference on the ground may work well. this can be done many ways including a contrasting line, barcodes at specific locations, or a buried wire. given your reference to a frequency of movement i assume you will want an absolute position reference at at least one location to reduce accumulated error/drift that can result from localization using encoders or other integration methods. You can also combine several localization methods to improve accuracy.

describing what application, environment, size, complexity, accuracy, and any other details about you robot would help people provide more meaningful recommendations.

Thanks for your replay
But can the GPS provide a stable data to the robot as the robot must move frequently on a defined path
Software / Sample Code for ER1 WinSock API - C# / .Net

I created a sample app for controlling an ER1 using C# / .Net / WinSock and can operate over Wi-Fi.

It requires that the ER1 controlling laptop be running the Robot Control Software, and the sample app runs remotely.

It can be downloaded at:

Let me know if you have any problems with it.

 ;D Hello!
I would have to consider the complexity of the robot you are referencing. The more complex
allows more variables to be taken into account, thus more accuracy is delivered. I would focus
on accuracy, then the work load of the design of the robot becomes apparent.
Coordinates suggest GPS usage, so I would look at the Raspberry Pi for accessories to acquire
your information, then use that to navigate. Good Luck!   ;) :) :D ;D

 ;D Hello!
Definitely go to Parallax. com, for all your beginning robot needs. Cheap, educational, easy to assemble & program; you can not go wrong. They have a lot of support, and have been around awhile. Good Luck!!
 ;) :) :D ;D

 ;D Hello!
My first instinct is to say, AXON, but I have not had much luck with the coding and construction,
yet. To answer the question from beginning to end, form follows function. Simple robots should be
simple to program and assemble, and thus, my recommendation follows;
 My honest opinion, at this time, is to go to Parallax. com. They have very simple basic stamps,
easy to program, put together, understand, and plenty of support. PBASIC is the language they use. The Parallax propeller is more advanced, and has root languages that can be used together.
Good Luck!   ;) :) :D ;D
