    Re: programming

    Two robots can communicate over various methods. Some are better than others for various reasons, but to supply the best answer, we need the most information from you. What are the robots? How much data are they sending? How often are the sending data? How far away are they? How long do you want the robots to last on a charge (assuming that they are mobile bots).

    There is a great deal of difference between two bots which communicate in a small room via bluetooth and two robots on either side of the world communicating 3G wifi.

    Re: programming

    This is a pretty broad question, which leaves it pretty hard to give a useful answer on. It's akin to asking: "How do I make my robot move?"

    Many different factors and methods of going about it, much of which will depend upon what type of hardware these robots consist of. I would highly recommend hammering down the major details of your project first, and once you have a robot in hand (or at least in mind), approach the question of communication between multiple robots and/or PCs again.

    That said, I recommend you look into Zigbee/Xbee technology a bit. We have a nice selection here on our store, and there is a ton of information on the net about it.

    i know that but is making that robot is too difficult for me for a person who has moderate experince .i was just asking about the difficulty level.

    Re: programming

    Competing? Trivially easy for someone with moderate experience. With moderate experience, you already have a plan for how you'd go about it.

    Winning's a different story. It always is.

    Re: programming

    You're too much like me.

    Set a goal you want to accomplish with one project at a time. Go from there.

    If you run from this project to that one, you'll never get anything done. Check any of my posts here for proof.
