Robotics Robotics::Tecan Robotics::Tecan::Genesis Robotics::(vendor)::(model) This is the perl module for controlling laboratory robotics & peripheral devices in either industrial laboratory or homebrew environments. Provides easy-to-use software interface to the physical robots and allows programming the robots at a higher level. Provides network communication using a client-server for manufacturers which provide third-party applications to access the robot; this allows a remote computer running this module to communicate to the robot's computer running this module. * Support for Tecan Genesis is provided. * Support for other Perl CPAN modules is under discussion, such as: LEGO Mindstorm, Microchip UBW, etc. * Support for other devices and manufacturers is open for discussion or contributon (author is available for funded work - email to discuss). This module requires: Robotics hardware; may require physical connection (serial port or USB, etc) from the Perl computer to the robot, or may require internet connection. For network communication, this module uses IO::Socket. There may be simulation modes available (so hardware is not required) however simulation of the robotics is not the goal -- getting them physically working is! NO WARRANTIES: Author(s) are not responsible for physical damage to hardware or people! WATCH OUT. (All user applications you write should also include warnings prior to executing movement as a general guideline. Namespace note: The name "Robotics" is used rather than "Robot" since there are many perl software modules for internet / web / script automation which are incorrectly called "robots". The more correct term for such labelled software is "user software agent" or simply "agent". INSTALLATION To install this module, run the following commands: perl Makefile.PL make make test make install SUPPORT AND DOCUMENTATION After installing, you can find documentation for this module with the perldoc command. perldoc Robotics You can also look for information at: RT, CPAN's request tracker http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/Bugs.html?Dist=Robotics AnnoCPAN, Annotated CPAN documentation http://annocpan.org/dist/Robotics CPAN Ratings http://cpanratings.perl.org/d/Robotics Search CPAN http://search.cpan.org/dist/Robotics/ COPYRIGHT AND LICENCE Copyright (C) 2009 Jonathan Cline, firstname.lastname@example.org This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of either: the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation; or the Artistic License.
