The robot simulator for the G4G event is now in prototype state. Some fine-tuning still is to do and the interface has to be translated into different languages.
Programming a mission, simulating it and cross-compiling into RP6 hex files (then sending it to the RP6 using the RP6Loader tool) is all operational.
The RP6 is programmed using Logo-like commands, keeping measurements in real units (degrees, millimetres) in order too not to remove all challenges. The simulator translates the simple DSL into a C program, compiled into RP6 code using the WinAVR tool suite.
More details about all this will follow later. The program will be open-sourced after the G4G event anyway.
