Sun 4 Nov 2018 11:28 - 11:31 at Beacon Hill - Empowerment & Broadening Participation

We present a novel way to program wireless networked educational robots. RoboScape is a new service that we added to NetsBlox, a collaborative, blocks-based programming environment based on Snap! NetsBlox provides simple abstractions to create distributed programs. RoboScape uses these abstractions, Remote Procedure Calls (RPC) and message passing, to program the robot. The program runs in the browser and not on the robot. It remotely controls the robots with RPCs and the robot provides sensor values by sending messages back. This approaches makes programming robots as easy as programming sprites.
