Hi,

I bought two Khepera IV recently for researching. If i do not want to use virtual machine to access to the Linux, how to construct the Wifi and bluetooth communication between computer and Khepera using Microsoft Visual Studio C++ ? Or, is there any available example code under C++ development environment on Windows?

Thanks.

Hi,

actually you cannot program the KheperaIV under windows, you need to do it under a Linux system.
But, you can communicate with the robot from a Windows computer using the server on the Robot (See manual chapter 6).

In this case, the Robot will act as a slave of your computer and respond to the communication protocol explain in the manual.
The communication will be made through the Bluetooth (seen as a simple COM port by your computer once the connection established).
