Welcome to a new fancy release for ARC. In this version, I introduce Client/Server and Remote Control. The HTTP Server allows control of your robot over a web browser. The EZ-Server allows ARC instances to link together to control your robot. You can link thousands of people together and control one robot - or you can control your robot from the office.

This version is supporting the TCP connectivity - which you may guess - means iPhone... Soon.

Changes

  • HTTP Server streams video image
  • Connection allows TCP connectivity (wifi modules coming soon)
  • Connection allows Telnet EZ-Script access

Hi DJ,

I did get an error build after install. After uninstall and reinstall it went away. Looks like things are working just fine....looking forward to working with the cool new additions!

If you get the following error, uninstall ARC, then re-install.
