How to use the HTTP Server (Custom) robot skill

This HTTP Server is different than the regular HTTP Server because it allows custom HTML Files. The HTML Files may contain special commands for controlling your robot

Supported file extension types:

  • .HTML
  • .JPG
  • .PNG
  • .CSS
*Note: Any other file extension is returned as a mime type of application/octet-stream

Embedded Control Syntax

Special HTML style tags are used to create buttons for interaction with ARC. These buttons are AJAX, which means they do not reload the page when pressed.

  • <ez-move text="button title (i.e. Forward)" data-direction="forward" />
  • <ez-move text="button title (i.e. Right)" data-direction="right" />
  • <ez-move text="button title (i.e. Reverse)" data-direction="reverse" />
  • <ez-move text="button title (i.e. Left)" data-direction="left" />
  • <ez-move text="button title (i.e. Stop)" data-direction="stop" />
  • <ez-script text="button title">ezscript command</ez-script>
