Robotics Common Overview
Glossary Item Box
Robotics Common is a Dynamic Link Library (DLL) that contains most of the important robotics services in RDS. The source code is located in samples\Common.
Although it is not possible to rebuild the Robotics Common DLL because it is a core component of RDS, you can see how various services work and use the code to create new services.
The following generic contracts are defined in Robotics Common:
- Analog Sensor
- Analog Sensor Array
- Articulated Arm
- Contact Sensor
- DepthCam Sensor
- Differential Drive
- WebCam (the original Video camera)
- WebCam Sensor (specifically for the Kinect)
For information on how to create your own generic contracts, see Service Tutorial 8 - Generic Service Declaration.
