Abstract:Most first-time users find it complicated to use the StarL programming framework, especially when they have little experience with Java. The major challenges for programming distributed robotic applications are (1) the learning curve for Java, (2) setting up the StarL development environment, and (3) learning curve for effectively using the Java functions in StarL. We therefore introduce the StarL web interface that provides a more user-friendly access to the StarL programming framework while emphasizing more on the StarL high-level coordination of distributed robots. The StarL web interface enables researchers to implement their applications on distributed robots in the StarL high-level language, run the project and then plot the experiment data for analyzing the robot's traces. The main contribution of this thesis is the user-friendly interface with syntax highlighting and data visualization of the robots' traces obtained through simulation. A Formation example application will illustrate the many aspects of the StarL web interface.
