what software is used?
« on: October 17, 2008, 08:20:30 AM »
hey everyone! I'm new to the robotics area but i want to build my own robot. \

now I've tried microsoft robotics studio and found its not up to what i want. i have also tried cogmation... but it has limited information on how to do anything with it.

i just want to make a robot that i can controll with a xbox 360 controller. i cant seem to find anything or any documentation of any kind on that topic...

anyone have any ideas on how to program a 360 controller?

what programs does everyone here use to program their robots?

I use PIC microcontrollers with the CCS C compiler.

thanks for all the controller help but how can you program the robot to be used with it?

You must check this out, CommanderFluffy.

and the MEMBERS PM BOX to bug with your torrent of question is DarkBlueStar.  LOL...

I actually looked into what you are asking not to long ago for my BB, and found that there are many ways to make a "Robot*" run on XBOX 360 controller.  I though the XBee approach was the easiest but maybe not the least expensive.   :-\
