I'm planning to buy the axon MCU soon, so i thought i'd learn a thing or two before i get it, got some few questions:
1. what is webbotlib? is it needed to program the axon?
2. i believe robot programming depends on 2 main things: commanding motors to move and receiving data from sensors, so my question is, how to do these? for example, lets say i have a light sensor in pin 00, is there a function like: GetPinValue ( PIN_00 )? same with motors, is it that simple? (i'm pretty sure it's not)
3. what is a UART used for? and how is it used?
4. Let's say, i want my robot to be a "card reader", a couple of sensors reading some data from a card and sending it to the program, is there a way to dump the received data to a text file on my computer? (whether wireless or with a USB plugged - doesn't matter), i have made a program that reads a text file and displays some stuff on screen regarding the info received (like rejected or accepted, etc), i believe it has something to do the the UART?
Thanks for reading
