What are these?


#1

Looking through the posts I keep seeing the following but they’re almost always used by people who already know what they are.

pyxis, rlp, wpf, rwar, IMU

Any chance I could get a couple lines of description about each of these or, better yet, a pointer to information?


#2

RLP - Runtime Loadable Procedure
WPF - Windows Presentation Foundation
IMU - Inertial Measurement Unit (?)
Pyxis - an OS (operating system) written to run on .Net MF


#3

You can see a release video of Pyxis and some of it’s features here: http://www.tinyclr.com/forum/1/2371/

RWAR is a project by Chris on the forums. It’s a robot that navigates waypoints via GPS. It may have other features as well, but Chris could tell you better.

It’s my very fast RC car bot.

Skew hit it pretty well on the head, it navigates from GPS waypoint to waypoint. It’s also got cruise control.

It’s mainly a tool for me to test control loops, and it’s fun to get some exercise running next to it in the summer. All I have to do is plan my route beforehand and then just load it to SD and run after it when it starts moving. ;D
