WEBCAST: Microsoft Robotics Studio – An Introduction

UPDATE: The date for this webcast in the original post was wrong.  The date of this webcast is February 27, 2008 (updated below).  Hopefully, if you registered, you noticed this.  Sorry for the confusion.

Microsoft Robotics Studio (MSRS) is a Windows-based environment for robot control and simulation.  Technologies comprising MSRS are applicable to a wide range of domains, including command and control, sensor networks, financial transactions processing, server management and many others. With Microsoft Robotics Studio, robotics applications can be developed using a selection of programming languages, including those in Microsoft Visual Studio® and Microsoft Visual Studio Express (C# and VB.NET), as well as scripting languages such as Microsoft Iron Python. Third-party languages that support the Microsoft Robotics Studio services-based architecture are also supported. This session will provide an overview of MSRS, its application model and Visual Programming Language as well as peek under the hood at the MSRS technology foundation – Concurrency and Coordination Runtime (CCR), and Decentralized Software Services (DSS).

What you will learn:

  • How to get started with Microsoft Robotics Studio
  • How to easily create services for a wide variety of robot hardware using the Visual Programming Language
  • How MSRS makes Asynchronous Programming easy with the Concurrency and Coordination Runtime (CCR) which simplifies programming to handle asynchronous input from multiple robotics sensors and output to motors and actuators
  • How the Decentralized Software Services (DSS) application model makes it simple to access, and to respond to a robot’s state, using a Web-browser or Windows-based application thereby allowing real time monitoring of robotic sensors and response to motors and actuators.
