Introduction

EA robots like RoboThespian and SociBot have a web based 'Control Panel' also referred to as The Tritium GUI, (Graphical User Interface), which allows users to perform many kinds of actions like:


  • Remotely operate the robot with a browser based version of the Touch screen interface.
  • Add and remove content, like motion sequences and audio.
  • Configure theTouchscreen, add new buttons etc.
  • Configure and adjust hardware devices like motors and pneumatic muscles.
  • Configure the face projection, add new faces.
  • Adjust sound levels.
  • Edit and create scripts in the Python programming language, which can create automated robot behaviours.
  • view camera and depth sensor images and see what image recognition programs are doing with that data.
  • Check how the system is behaving, start and stop various software components.
