Hey guys. I'm playing with my first LynxMotion robot (an AL5B) and I've figured out how to use RIOS to creat sequences and steps within those sequences. What I'd like to do from here is create a Visual Studio app (probably VB.net) and do some sensor stuff to determine what move to make when. That part I can handle with no problem, but I'm unclear on how to tell my arm to execute sequence 1, for example. I would think its as easy as sending a command out the com port, but I'm not seeing exactly how to do that or what that command should look like.

Can anyone offer any thoughts on this, or better yet sample VS code? Thanks for your time!

Check out the socket server section of the manual. ;)

Ahhaha doh. RTFM eh? :o

Ok just to be perfectly clear, I'd write my app in VS and connect over a socket connection to the running RIOS application. Send the commands as per the manual and away I go?
