Radiation mapping application (Implementation)

The radiation mapping application was developed based on the iPhone 5 screen dimensions. Consequently, the layout and the size of the elements are adapted to this device. The minimum supported iOS version is the 7th. The implemented application consists of three UIViewControllers embedded in navigation controllers (fig.1). The main data structure that holds the mapping

Control a ROS-enabled UAV (Implementation)

The implementation of the application was based on three UIViewControllers embedded in navigation controllers (fig.1). The navigation between the screens was accomplished using segues. In the projects’ workspace, three external libraries have been imported, namely: SocketRocket RBManager MKMapView As long as the control tab is enabled, the control messages are published in a continuous rate

Override appearance proxy for a certain UIViewController

OK, the case is that in your application take advantage of the appearance proxy (iOS 5) for presenting a custom UI for your app. In AppDelegate.m you have and everything is working fine until??? Until the moment that you decide that in a UiSegmentedControl in a specific UIViewController you want a different appearance. This is
