The existing control software enables transmission of pictures from the camera situated on the robot's body to the PC computer screen. It is possible to equip the robot with a cordless camera operating in the LAN local network, WAN or GSM.
The robot can play the role of a mobile internet camera, controlled from the browser level. In case of transmitting pictures to a more powerful stationary computer, there will soon be a possibility of robot control based on processing images coming from the HEXOR®-mounted camera.
HEXOR® has been equipped with an infrared light, which enables it to see in conditions of complete darkness. This technology has significant development prospects, which will only increase together with the computational capabilities of personal computers. In addition, the robot can be provided with a voice recognition system. The machine reaction may also be supplemented by the emission of voice announcements. Their range depends on the range of applied processor.
The robot is controlled from the PC computer level by means of a radio link. The reach of the link ranges from more than a dozen meters in a building to several dozen or even several hundred meters in open space. The user can control HEXOR® by means of the attached software.
The User has the possibility of creating his own operating software on a personal computer, if he disposes of the application design environment such as Visual Basic or Delphi, or by using the programming tools added to the robot. Therefore, robot's operation can be controlled in many ways - the machine's possibilities are limited only by its user's imagination.
HEXOR® was made by Stenzel Ltd. within the framework of a study project at the Electrical Faculty of the Technical University of Silesia. It is a didactic instrument that uses the latest scientific achievements. HEXOR®'s greatest advantages are low price and considerable adaptation possibilities to the particular specific requirements of small companies, schools and research institutions. The robot can be applied in university laboratories, mainly due to its extensive possibilities and very competitive price as compared with other products in the didactic robot category.
A unique teaching program, designed for technical secondary schools with electric, computer science or mechatronics profile of studies is currently being created on the basis of HEXOR®. Thanks to its use the students will be able to observe the effects of their previous theoretical study. The programming work will be verified not only on a computer screen, but predominantly in a real world environment, in the form of movements and interactions with the robot. Beside the new didactic program for the subject of robotics, there is a great possibility of using the robot as a teaching aid within the framework of existing teaching subjects such as: physics, electronics, digital technology, microprocessor technology and mechatronics. HEXOR® makes an excellent platform for boosting creativity of students, rousing their inventiveness, enabling quick realization of their ideas. This machine will allow students to compete by organizing robot contests or battles. The use of totally safe and generally available laser indicators gives the possibility of "fencing" by means of two HEXOR® type representatives. Programming the robot in such a way so that it finds an exit out of a labyrinth as quickly as possible, is also a challenge for future engineers from the IT branch. Group games such a ball or robot fights are becoming an increasingly more popular entertainment. In spite of obvious analogies to real sports, it is in fact a refined challenge between the developers of these devices.
The created equipment platform has several development possibilities. In future it can be transformed into a professional
service robot. Machines of this type can be used by disabled persons. Another potential area of using mobile robots is to
support guards watching over people or property.
