This document introduces the demo project of "move_to_spot", including how to move in standard mode and virtual track mode.


IDE Preparation 

  • Software

    • Visual Studio 2010  SP1
    • Slamware Windows SDK:Slamware Windows SDK
    • RoboStudio(for map display):Robostudio installer 
    • Sample Code: 

      Higher version of Visual Studio will cause errors. sometime you will need to upgrade SP1 package to make your VS compatable with .Net Framework.

  • Hardware

          (Either one of following)

    • Slamware SDP mini 
    • Slamware SDP
    • Slamware Kit 
    • Zeus/Apollo robot base




  1. Right click on "move_to_spot" project, set as StartUp project.
  2. Right click on "move_to_spot",then " Properties",configure "include" and "lib" directories to the corresponding folder path of Slamware SDK.

    It's not necessary to copy files to the project directory, user will only need to configure the path of SDK.

  3. Right click on "move_to_spot",set "Command Arguments"  as follows:
    Syntax Description:move_to_spot <IP address> 

  4. Click " F5" to execute.
  5. Robot motion and map could be seen on Robostudio.


  • Robot moves firstly  to point(2, 0) in standard mode, and then back to point (0,0) in virtual track mode, if any obstacle is detected, it will be automatically avoided with the standard mode or it will stops on virtual tracks on virtual track mode.

            SlamwareCorePlatform sdp = SlamwareCorePlatform::connect(argv[1], 1445);
    		std::cout <<"SDK Version: " << sdp.getSDKVersion() << std::endl;
    		std::cout <<"SDP Version: " << sdp.getSDPVersion() << std::endl;
    		rpos::actions::MoveAction action = sdp.getCurrentAction();
    		if (action)
    		//move to location (2, 0), not on virtual track
    		rpos::features::motion_planner::MoveOptions options;
    		options.flag = MoveOptionFlag(MoveOptionFlagMilestone | MoveOptionFlagPrecise);
    		action = sdp.moveTo(rpos::core::Location(2, 0), options);
    		if (action.getStatus() == rpos::core::ActionStatusError)
    			std::cout << "Action Failed: " << action.getReason() << std::endl;
    		//draw a virtual track from (0, 0) to (2, 0), then move to (0, 0) via virtual track
    		rpos::core::Line line(rpos::core::Point(0,0),rpos::core::Point(2,0));
    		sdp.addLine(ArtifactUsageVirtualTrack, line);
    		options.flag = MoveOptionFlag(MoveOptionFlagKeyPoints | MoveOptionFlagPrecise);
    		action = sdp.moveTo(rpos::core::Location(0, 0), options);
    		if (action.getStatus() == rpos::core::ActionStatusError)
    			std::cout << "Action Failed: " << action.getReason() << std::endl;
