Need Help - Design

Postby win1for » Fri Mar 05, 2010 9:27 pm

Hi Guys,

I am developing a project to visualize the activities of a robot in a warehouse. There will be a separate program running on the robots and the crossings/roads in the warehouse.

This program will communicate with the GUI running on the PC(the program on the PC visualizes the activities of the robots - movement, placing pallets on shelves etc...).

I am required to implement the project in such a way that a change in the program running on the robots will not affect the program running on the PC (GUI) and vice versa. Or a change on one side must results in a minimum change on the other side. There should not be a major change on one side when new functionalities must be added to the other side.

I need ideas about how to accomplish this.

Thank you very much.

You need to define a message protocol between the PC and the robot using data streams. Typically, you would define a set of commands and responses. If both sides stick to this protocol, they can change as much as you like.
