If you are interested in an introduction to Microsoft Robotics Studio you can find Vlad’s talk here.
With this talk you will learn:
· How to get started with Microsoft Robotics Studio
· How to easily create services for a wide variety of robot hardware using the Visual Programming Language
· How MSRS makes Asynchronous Programming easy with the Concurrency and Coordination Runtime (CCR) which simplifies programming to handle asynchronous input from multiple robotics sensors and output to motors and actuators
· How the Decentralized Software Services (DSS) application model makes it simple to access, and to respond to a robot’s state, using a Web-browser or Windows-based application thereby allowing real time monitoring of robotic sensors and response to motors and actuators.
Also you can find a collection of other interesting technical talks by Vlad Vinogradsky, Architect Evangelist, here.
