Use Radios Actuator and Sensor (Footbot)

Postby anne » Thu Mar 14, 2019 3:46 pm

I want to use the radios actuators ans sensors for communication between footbots. I tried it analog to range and bearing, but I get the following error message:

[FATAL] Failed to initialize the space.
[FATAL] Error while trying to distribute entities
[FATAL] Failed to initialize entity "fb0".
[FATAL] Failed to initialize controllable entity "controller_0".
[FATAL] Can't set controller for controllable entity "controller_0"
[FATAL] Can't set robot for the radios default actuator
[FATAL] While getting a component from a composable entity
[FATAL] Component "radios" does not exist in "fb0"

They are currently not supported on the foot-bot.
I made ARGoS.

Thank you.
Are they supported by another robot?

We don't have WiFi radio support at the moment - but it would be simple to add, in fact. It boils down to adding a new medium, and maybe connect it with the well-known ns-3 simulator.
I made ARGoS.
