I am forwarding this email to the playerstage mailing list, please send
future player related emails there so others in the community can help and
they replies can be archived. I have never used the Magellan robots, but as
far as I am aware they are supported by the standard player distribution.
All you should need to do is build player and then tune one of the example
rflex config files for your specific robot. So if you have install player
already, all you should need to do is run player with the config file (there
is a magellan.cfg distributed with player in the config folder)
Then run one of the player clients such as playerv and you should be able to
control the robot.
Hope that helps,
