All robots follow the “sense-plan-act” cycle. That is what you find at the heart of MAX – core services to: integrate sensor and guidance data; make decisions based on that data; and take action by sending out control commands. MAX for Robots:
- Contains everything you need for robotic control available as services that you can call from your high-level application
- Supports communication via a range of protocols callable by your main program. Want to use a different type of communication? Change the configuration, not the code.
- Provides discrete I/O services (serial) and the ability to call out to your existing C or C++ code to leverage your existing work
