We provide tutorials to learn applying and using the SmartMDSD Toolchain. Tutorials are grouped thematically into lessons. We recommend to go through the material in the listed order. In case you get into trouble, see Contact and Support. Some of the tutorials are also available as video tutorial in a YouTube Playlist
In addition, check our list of HowTo's that provide very precise and short descriptions of a specific task in the SmartMDSD Toolchain.
The effort to follow these tutorials is fairly low since we provide a virtual machine image (virtual appliance) with everything set-up and ready-to-go.
If you only want to try things out but do not want to touch your system, please use the Virtual Machine setup. Even though you can follow all tutorials with the virtual machine, we recommend to setup an own enviroment for tutorial levels „advanced“ and „experienced“.
|beginner||For people just getting in touch with our tools. Basic robotics knowledge is a plus.|
|advanced||For full fledged users who want to apply all parts of the SmartSoft World.|
|experienced||For the full user and robotics experts who want to understand, deeply apply, exploit, and eventually contribute to the SmartSoft World.|
We assume that you successfully followed either option 1 or option 2 (both options can also be reached via the Getting Started Guide):
In case, someone else did the installation for you, please talk to that person to know about how to access the installation.
The following tutorial gives you very basic information:
This lesson guides you through the SmartMDSD Toolchain and software development environment to get an overview and a comfortable start. We do this by running different robots in simulation. You get an immediate impression of the power of the SmartMDSD Toolchain and its development tools. We provide all the hints of where to find more information, documentation, reusable components etc. We will accomplish all the tasks of this tutorial and the next tutorials by using a Virtual Machine.
