Microsoft* Robotics Developer Studio 2008 R2 Express Edition enables hobbyists and non-professional developers to create robotics applications targeting a wide range of scenarios.
Microsoft Robotics Developer Studio supports a broad set of robotics platforms by either running directly on the platform or controlling it from a Windows device through a communication channel such as Wi-Fi or Bluetooth*.
In addition to providing support for Microsoft Visual Studio, Microsoft Robotics Developer Studio 2008 R2 Express Edition provides a visual programming environment which allows developers to create applications simply by dragging and dropping components onto a canvas and wiring them together.
The powerful Visual Simulation Environment provides a high-fidelity simulation environment powered by NVIDIA* PhysX* engine for running game-quality 3D simulations with real-world physics interactions.
To help developers getting started, the studio contains extensive documentation and a large set of samples and tutorials that illustrate how to write applications ranging from simple "Hello Robot" to complex applications that simultaneously run on multiple robots.
* Supported Operating Systems: Windows Vista; Windows XP
In addition to using Microsoft Robotics Developer Studio 2008 R2 Express Edition as a stand-alone development environment, it can be used with any of the Visual Studio 2008 Express Editions, Visual Studio 2008 Standard Edition, Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition or Visual Studio 2008 Team System Edition.
