The paper deals with the development of a transport robot control system with voice commands and simulation of their movement in Microsoft Robotics Developer Studio (MRDS) software product. The advantages of MRDS over other programmes are discussed. The programming language used was VPL, a visual programming environment for creating and debugging applications. It was designed multi-level control of the robot. At the top level of control, human voice commands are recognised, setting the direction of movement of the robot and its motion functions. At the lower level, the wheel speed is controlled by a microcontroller, which generates pulse width modulation output signals.
