Hi Everyone! This is probably the last post of this year and in this occasion I want to share with you all a side project that I’ve being working on my spare time with my father. In less than 10 days we manage to build a small robot which runs all its logic inside the Drools Rule Engine. This first step main goal was to prove that it is possible to build a low cost robot which will be entirely controlled by the rule engine and the CEP features provided by Drools Fusion. We didn’t include any process execution in this first stage, but it is definitely on the roadmap. This post briefly explains what we have now working and what’s planned for the future, because this is just the beginning. The interesting side of the project is to make the robot completely autonomous, which means that it will run entirely on its own and without the need to be connected to a computer or to a power outlet in the wall.
