This is the Windows app named rodneyspr whose latest release can be downloaded as AVRTestFlight.zip. It can be run online in the free hosting provider OnWorks for workstations.
Download and run online this app named rodneyspr with OnWorks for free.
Follow these instructions in order to run this app:
- 1. Downloaded this application in your PC.
- 3. Upload this application in such filemanager.
- 4. Start any OS OnWorks online emulator from this website, but better Windows online emulator.
- 5. From the OnWorks Windows OS you have just started, goto our file manager https://www.onworks.net/myfiles.php?username=XXXXX with the username that you want.
- 6. Download the application and install it.
- 7. Download Wine from your Linux distributions software repositories. Once installed, you can then double-click the app to run them with Wine. You can also try PlayOnLinux, a fancy interface over Wine that will help you install popular Windows programs and games.
Wine is a way to run Windows software on Linux, but with no Windows required. Wine is an open-source Windows compatibility layer that can run Windows programs directly on any Linux desktop. Essentially, Wine is trying to re-implement enough of Windows from scratch so that it can run all those Windows applications without actually needing Windows.
This project comprises two main parts:
1. The classic "Rodney" as described in David L. Heisermann's book "How to build your own self-programming robot", with the original Intel 8085 code. In all likelihood, this is for reference only. I don't expect many people are going to build it
2. An updated version, running on more modern hardware, but remaining true to the algorithms published in his book.
The end result will be at least three sets of code, for the Alpha, Beta and Gamma versions of Rodney. We would also like to experiment with a "Delta" version which could use either bare RF or WiFi to exchange state data between machines. A "hive mind" if you like.
For the new-generation version, we propose targeting two hardware platforms:
1. Arduino, since it's cheap and easy to use, while remaining close to the bare metal
2. A purpose-built AVR card, or easily ported to cards obtainable from sources such as futurlec.com, etc.
RaspberryPi is also an option later

This is an application that can also be fetched from https://sourceforge.net/projects/rodneyspr/. It has been hosted in OnWorks in order to be run online in an easiest way from one of our free Operative Systems.
