This is MiniBot it is the robot that we maid for out Senior design project. Networking we used import socket for sending information over a network with a client and a server

server the code for the server is

-host = '' #gets comp ip address

-port = 20000 #random port this can be set to almost anything between 1023 and 6000 ish once you start a server if you need to restart it you will need to close that terminal and open a new one so the port will no longer be in use

-s = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_DGRAM) this part is what tells the socket what kind of data we want to use AF_INET tells network/internet and sock_DGRAM tells it to use udp packets (these are somewhat unstable as they are not checked)

-s.bind((str(host), port)) #binds s to the server so it can be called

-data, addr = s.recvfrom(1024) this tells the program to wait till it gets a packet from the client the 1024 can be lowered but should be in base 2 if you leave it at 1024 it will be fine it just tells it to take data that is only 1024 or less
