Before you go any further...

The easiest way to control RoboThespian or SociBot is by using the Touch Screen >

Programmers can write custom code that runs on the robot by using Control Functions >

If none of the above give you what you want you can connect to external third party software, or an external program you have written.
There are a number or ways you can achieve this:

  • Use http requests with the REST API - Beginner / Intermediate
  • Use the UDP protocol over a network or the Internet - Intermediate
  • Extend Tritium by writing your own Tritium Node - Advanced

There are some useful connectivity tutorials here >
