Project Title: Clips To C Interface For Mobile Robot Control
Semester: Fall 2000
Committe Chair: Dr. R. Stephen Dannelly
Committee Member 1: Dr. Mario Garcia
Committee Member 2: Dr. Michelle Moore
Project Description: This project is the design and implementation of a series of library functions written in the C programming language that are used to extend the functionality of CLIPS, an expert system shell. Students enrolled in an expert systems class will have the ability to write CLIPS programs that utilize the C libraries to control a Pioneer Mobile Robot. The function calls return a series of values back to the CLIPS expert system inference engine denoting the current state of the robot. Previously, all robot control programs had to be written in C. With this project, programs can now be written in a higher level language, CLIPS.
