hello to all.

This summer i started work on my wifi rover. project name (Semi-teQ). Let me explain some quick features.
(project log can be found on Bit-Tech here)
im using brushed dc smart amps motor controller RoboteQ AX2550.
the 2 motors im running are 24v 4 pole wheelchair motors.
ultrasonic sensors and gps location will be added later
black body with dark blue neon underneath.
8" woofer.
there is also a on board computer that the AX2550 is hooked to. in doing so i can control the robot over wifi. sense the robot has wifi i can run a server program for the AX2550 on the robot that will allow me to use the client side to control the rover. because there is wifi i can control the robot through my laptop gaming joystick. or from my psp via ppjoy. or even from my pda phone. with a webcam feedback display.

now the computer is currently running a XP with a 10gb 2.5" laptop hd. my plans were to use a 1gb usb flash drive but i ran into problems with livexp and llinux booting from the computer in the robot.

now because i needed wifi support with livexp i looked into PENetwork its a great autoit script so far but i the wifi suppor from that isn't currently working so i wait for that. in the time being i found a Ubuntu usb drive install tut that i followed and now have wifi support via linux usb stick. on the linux usb stick i installed QEmu and im going to run LiveXP from that.

i have most of all that going, but my main issue is the software my robot requires in order to run. im trying to port it to livexp script but im getting ocx and dll registration problems. i manually went in and was able to register all but 5 of them. i don't know why these 5 wouldn't register. my current script. here it is
Attached File  Roborun.script ( 3.08MB ) Number of downloads: 15

so until i get that script working , (which i have no clue how from here) i will put my usb stick aside for now and use my hard drive. also i need to figure out if there is a flash update for my motherboard because normal working bootable usb sticks just give a flashing "j" after post and don't boot.

Peter has just introduced OCX registration - http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=2745

You use this script to register the OCX files inside your target windows.

Have you also tried running the roboteq program from the ramdrive? (copy program from CD to ramdrive and run from there)

And it might also be a missing dependencies issue - running dependency walker with profiling option is good to track the missing files.

I will posting this script for liveXP later today and maybe a quick tutorial to explain how hunt these bugs.. (IMG:http://www.boot-land.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)


Really liked these bots - they sound a good entertainment project, there's one mentioned in your above links that would be really popular around here..

That is a crazy good project your working on. I would never expect someone trying to use liveXP to control a remote rover. Best of luck.

If you get it to work. A tutorial and the scripts used in the project would be appreciated. You could release it as a Winbuilder project with the tittle similar to "wifi rover control". That way others that might be interested in such a project as your would get their inspiration from your project. Just like you did from the other persons project.
