Robo is a simple programming language that allows you
to get introduced to the principles of computer programming. Besides an introduction
to popular control structures, you'll obtain insight in the areas of robotics
and artificial intelligence.
To make sure you can get started quickly with the topics that really care,
a new programming language named Robo is introduced. It's a comprehensive language,
dedicated to programming a robot. Still it's powerful enough to create lots
of interesting programs. Also the principles you'll encounter form the core
to most other programming languages.
The RoboMind development environment allows you to write programs that will
be performed by a simulated robot. It consists of the following parts:
In this text area you can write down your task in the form of a script
that the robot will perform.
Here you see the current state of the robot in its environment. Because
this is the entire environment in which the robot lives, we'll just call
it the world.
Once you have decided what the script is, here you're able to let the
robot get started (or stopped). It's also possible to tune the speed in
which the robot operates.
In case the script is awkward, you'll receive
compile errors over here. It's also the place where the robot may notify
