MRDS review – DSS, CCR, simulator and friends

This post is part of the SATF work.

This is a good time to review Microsoft Robotics Developer Studio architecture, since all the following will use the terms and notions of that system. Quite naturally, it strongly influenced simulation testing framework algorithms design and data structures. MRDS is a .NET-based framework which consists of three main components: DSS, CCR and simulation engine, plus tooling. Continue reading

Robotics, just like other contemporary research fields, is inherently based on software. Although this type of software deviates considerably from a conventional one, it looks only reasonable for it to adopt and exploit the methods proved useful in traditional software development. This work presents one of such attempts – adaptation of automated acceptance testing to robotics software development. Continue reading
