I know this should be in the Java section, but I thought i would get any input i could possibly get, JIC.
I am currently working on a method to script the autonomous mode for my team’s robot, and possibly teleop as well. I have no idea where to start, but i do know that I want to start with something like Rhino.
There are a tens of script languages built on top of Java that can be used. Do you want to pick something that is very complex (Python) or something simple that would support the example above? This goes back to gblake’s post about design details.
You might want to check in with the people from the older thread and see where they are in their development and see if you want to join their efforts. (That many hands make light work thing). Its only a few weeks to the start of fall seasons in the US where most of us do training in new tools. We try not to learn new things during build season, so if you wanted wider use of your idea the time to roll it out is soon.
I won’t hijack your thread to open up the discussion about do you need an Object Oriented scripting language to create winning robot code. There have been some interesting discussions on computer language forums on how “less” is often “more”.
