Optimization For Video and Telebotic Control on Palm OS PDAs

The Network-Centric Applied Research Team (NCART) [1] has been exploring the possibility of extending video, audio and control services through the Internet to various telebotic devices. To allow greater freedom of movement to the telerobot, the final communications link is wireless. In previous work, we have demonstrated a wireless client interface through a common Palm OS Personal Digital Assistant (PDA). Wireless Internet Video and Robotics Control on the Palm OS PDA involves the problem of multiple constraints, including limited bandwidth, hardware speed and software size. This paper presents solving the problem numerically by means of a Simplex Technique. Some numerical results are presented.
