WinPuma Status Report
WinPuma Status Report (7/12/1996)
First of all I'd like to thank everyone who has shown a interest to date! I've
replied to all but 3 individuals (your e-mail address couldn't be resolved).
As of now, I have coded and tested the MS-Windows simulation software and
libraries which I intend to embed within WinPuma (simulation version). Adding
this capability will enable users to select/edit continuous simulation models
for the joints of the robot. This also means various controllers can be
evaluated for the selected models. As of now my priorities are as follows:
Of course, this work list takes a back seat to my normal day job which is
writing MS-Windows software so hopefully I can finish things without getting
burned out first!
- Complete the separate MS-Windows simulation program
- Finish the inverse kinematics
- Created a X-Y-Z world mode pendant dialog
- Create a replay-recorder dialog to compliment the event-replay dialog
- Move all remaining configuration parameters to the INI file
- Replace the current simulation code with a simulation model
- Upload a version for evaluation purposes

Eventually I plan on making a limited simulator version available for
free download and evaluation. It is my hope to continue working with the
Electrical Engineering Department
University of North Dakota
and to eventually provide a Client/Server version capable of monitoring the
robot located in the
Motion Control Lab
via a real-time TCP/IP based internet connection. Future upgrades
to Winpuma will depend on my ability to devote free time to the project.
I am also developing a integrated Fuzzy Logic simulation application for
MS-Windows which shares the same GUI class library thus I will upgrade
WinPuma (where possible) during that project's development.
