Sending commands from a mobile phone

    I want to send simple commands (turn left, right, start, stop, speed 123,
    etc) from a mobile phone with Symbian OS to a mobile robot.
    I have strong C++ experience both in Linux and MSWindows but I do not have
    experience in SW development in Symbian OS.
    Can someone suggest how can I start writing apps for mobile phone?
    Which SW development tools?
    Demo/example codes for Symbian apps?
    Is there any mobile phone to/from robot comm apps examples on the web?

  2. I don't think you're going to get an answer. Today was a bad day to
    ask about remote actuation.

    Why's that?
    Anyhow, for a uni assignment of mine I had to do bluetooth control of a
    robot using a mobile phone. Did it with Java without using Symbian OS
    specific stuff. I'll see if I can dig up the source for you.

    Email me at skywings AT dbzmail DOT com. If you want my Java code for a
    Nokia phone.

    Possibly because of the bombs in London. However they would not have
    been set by remote actuation. There are no mobile phone signals down
    those tunnels and a LOT of interference anyway.
    Anyway real terrorists don't tend to give out contact details and
    publish source code :)

  5. Obviously, when they did, it would take away any suspicion.....

    No, because they will get looked at anyway.

    I am told that the deviate that recently kidnapped the little girl
    in the western US and killed her brother and parents had a page up
    where it advertised its fantasies. Pronoun choice deliberate.
