I have a number of Rhino Robotics arms and controllers of various vintages. They are a marvel of electronic and mechanical engineering. Their high cost has kept them out of the hands of many hobbiests.
I am working on building a web interface for these using SitePlayer modules allowing world-wide-web teleoperation of an arm. A snag that I am working on now is that the SitePlayer seems to only do 8 bits, no parity, 1 stop bit and the Rhino controller needs 7 data bits, even parity, 2 stop bits... I can code the data so that the 8 data bits with no parity is the same as 7 bits even parity but overcoming the 2 stop bits without some way to pace the SitePlayer output is killing the project...
See my project notes.
