RS Media

Some questions about RS Media programming

Dradts's picture


as far as I know, the RS Media can be controlled using shell-scripts. I would like to know how flexible this is? Can multiple commands be executed at the same time? Can I read out the RSM's different sensors? Can I directly control all of its motors? Is it possible to playback sounds, movies, ....

I've read the manual for the Macro-Editor and it says that it ain't possible to nest multiple "if"-clauses. Is this true? I mean, the shell script normally should be able to nest as many clauses as I want, shouldn't it? Or how did they implement this functionality?

LCD Screen viewing angle

When working with RS Media at eye level on my desk plugged into power I have noticed the LCD screen quality/viewing angle is very poor. Any pictures look very whited out and photos of people look terrible. For example; the wowee white personality icons almost blend into the dark backgrounds. You have to be looking down from above for the pictures to look OK - has anyone else noticed this? Is it designed this way or is my robot faulty?
