Hi guys, I wanted to know if I can control two Brookstone rovers with one computer and two wireless cards. Its for a school project. Each card would connect to one of the rovers. I tried doing this with the EZ Builder software and was unable to do so since it wouldn't let me add more than one control for the rover even though I was connected to two. I was wondering if this is possible with the SDK since I would be using it anyway or is it completely limited to controlling one rover.
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Experience early access to the latest features and updates. You'll have everything that is needed to unleash your robot's potential.
Oonly thought you can connect 2 ARC and control both using only one
i guess will wait for EBLAZE123 to make the sdk
so DJ i cant connect EZ=-BUILDER on one of my tanks and have another computer with another ARC and control or read values and control from one one computer using server command
I guess i might start my own project.
sorry about that there is no limitation to ARC or EZ-SDK running multiple instances. The limitation is with the rover itself.
Next working on a script on controlling ,tet my design is on the last page of the post,if you have a problem let me know.
second part waiting on one another WIFI board that my network guy said it should work with some changes using only one computer.
THIRD it little hard but work on a script to control both rovers with one pc
not using the Movement Panel only using to connect to the rover.only scripts
BUT try my idea it works on 2 seperate computers,i have 2 at home
here is my link to my design
another brookstone rover project
EACH rover has its own SSID address on the bottom of the robot
Two rovers on Two separate computers is bound to work. The wireless connections are separated. The wireless connection creates an AdHoc wifi network between the PC and the Rover. This AdHoc connection is only available to the PC and the Rover. The second PC cannot see it therefore it is as if it does not exist. The second PC can therefore have an identical AdHoc wireless network without any issues.
Two rovers on the same computer, in effect in the same TCP/IP network, will cause IP conflicts. While the two AdHoc wireless networks are separate the IP address of both Rovers is the same (192.168.1.100). The TCP/IP network does not take in to account the SSID only the IP address. It sees two devices connected with the the same address AKA an IP Conflict.
TRY my test it works,,there is a way to bridge network connections ,so it can be controlled
Havent done that part yet waiting on another wireless card
WHAT ever post i do, it seems RICH finds it and tries to prove me wrong
when i tried AT HOME and it works ,YET he doesnt own one or sensor i design or circuit
I am electronic engineer mostly making electronic boards amd my main field is sensor testing,every type ever made almost
You cannot have two computers with the same IP address. That is called an IP address conflict.
You have connected two rovers to two different PCs.
I have explained why that works and why connecting two rovers on one PC will not work.
I have read every word you have typed. I have explained everything to you on countless occasions. What is it you have done which we are saying cannot be done?
Two rovers on one PC cannot happen.
Two rovers on two PCs can happen as the wireless adhoc networks do not conflict with each other as they are not joined in any way, shape or form.
and 192.168.1.102 for another
Will post a video of it when i finish my projects and the complete step by step on how to set it up
Also, you cannot have the same network on two separate adapters. In your example, you listed both rovers as being 192.168.1.x/255.255.255.0
You cannot span a network across two adapters.
If there was a way to change the ip of the rover,
They would need to be on separate networks.
Each adapter requires its own network.
So he will,tell me step by step on how he did it,only wish he like a across from the street from me ,but moved to philly,penn
SO he is best solution,I never give up,and i will find a fix for this.
he did tell me about me might needing its own adapter
and he said you can use 2 usb wireless cards with some changes on one computer
i JUST ordered another USB wireless card
RICH YOU SAID THIS :Two rovers on two PCs can happen as the wireless adhoc networks do not conflict with each other as they are not joined in any way, shape or form.
Thats how mine works
Just wait for my video and how to set it up,I am going to get it working.
