From MobileRobots Research and Academic Customer Support
MobileEyes is a graphical application for remotely monitoring and controlling a robot remotely (using wireless networking or other communications link). It uses the ArNetworking protocol (implementation included with ARIA) to connect to a server program on the robot's onboard computer (or communicating with the robot via serial-ethernet bridge, or with MobileSim locally). Several examples of such programs are included with ARNL, SONARNL and MOGS, as well as with the ArNetworking library in ARIA. Depending on what services the server has provided, MobileEyes can display the robot's position in a map, range sensor (sonar, laser) data, various pieces of status information (position values, battery voltage, etc.), camera image, and more. MobileEyes also includes controls for teleoperating the robot, sending it a goal to navigate to (position or from the map), and changing configuration parameters at run time.
