Control Receiver

The Control Receiver component configures the agent to establish and maintain a connection to the Robot Automation Platform, or to a local LAN connection, for receiving control messages. It must be enabled to perform remote control functions with the agent, as well as a corresponding protocol-level control component such as ROS or MAVlink.


To use the Control Receiver plugin, your agent will need a section in its agent-settings.json file which enables the control-receiver component, as shown below. For more information on how to configure the agent plugins, see Agent Configuration.
