Microsoft Robotics Developer Studio (RDS) is a general-purpose software platform for developing applications that require a high level of concurrency in a distributed environment, especially typical of robotics. It has been designed so that it can easily interface with a wide variety of hardware devices. The architecture uses a lightweight service-oriented approach that scales well, enabling very high messaging throughput.

This lecture-style tutorial provides an overview of RDS and its various components supplemented by numerous live demonstrations. The tutorial is based on the latest version of RDS 2008, released in November 2008.
