(Autonomous Robot Control Software)
Make robots with the easiest robot programming software. Experience user-friendly features that make any robot easy to program.

Change Release Notes

How do you create the worlds easiest, most scable and powerful Robot Control Software? I started by making it do what I wanted. Then I listen to what the community wanted. And finally, I spent countless hours developing and innovating hundreds of features.

Introducing... ARC

This release focuses mostly on ARC's built-in scripting language. EZ-Script was originally designed to be used for scripting actions and servo positions. Then we started adding conditional statements for custom behaviours. Even though we implemented other scripting controls (C# and VB), they lacked an integrated command syntax to control specific ARC features. This meant EZ-Script continued to grow and evolve. Before we knew it, EZ-Script had become a full featured programming language.

EZ-Script is very fast. It is actually incredibly fast and full featured. This release adds even more features to the powerful EZ-Script programming language only found in ARC.


- EZ-Script performance optimizations
- EZ-Script supports If/ElseIf/Else
- EZ-Script supports multiple comparisons
- EZ-Script math functions (Sin, Cos, Abs, Round)
- Camera Control creates EZ-Script variables for the detected Object's Width and Height

Example:

Code:


$y = Sin(5)
$y = Round($y, 2)
$y = Abs($y)

if (GetServo(D5) = 5)
print("Servo 5")
elseIf (GetServo(d5) = 7)
print("Servo 7")
else
print("Unknown")

if ($y = 5 or ($y = 3 and GetServo(D5) = 2))
print("Super yes!")
else
print("Who knows")

Ohhh... I get it:D

Here is a simple example of the camera detecting differing object size (or potential distance) using the new IfElse and $CameraObject commands

Objectsize.EZB

Nice additions DJ!

PS when I pasted my code it was all there until I saved my posting, then it was missing a bunch of lines and looked like this:

Code:


:start

$w = $CameraObjectWidth
$h = $CameraObjectHeight
$t = $CameraIsTracking

If (($w 20 or $h > 20) and ($w 50 or $h > 50) and $t=1)
Print("Large")

Else
Print("Missing")

goto(start)

I see that the ElseIF lines and some > signs where removed upon posting my code to the forum... strange *confused* Oh well, the above .EZB file works fine, check it out:)
