Pulse-signaling algorithm: a non-device-based robotics control and communication
Abstract:A pulse-signaling algorithm (PSA) is proposed for robotics control and communication. Using the PSA, an operator can send control signals directly to control a robot or a group of robots. No extra equipment is needed in PSA because the pulse signal can be generated easily from the operator. Three aspects of the algorithm are considered in this paper: communication protocol, hardware prototype and software implementation. The PSA protocol is composed of three parts, i.e. command code, operand code and address code, in order to control the desired robot to do the desired work. A PSA prototype circuit is designed and developed, and PSA software is programmed on the designed prototype circuit to realize the algorithm. Some experiments are performed to test and evaluate the proposed algorithm.
