Aria  2.8.0

example showing how to connect to the robot with ArRobotConnectorOne of the simplest ARIA programs possible: Connects with ArRobotConnector, waits 3 seconds doing nothing, then exits.

This program will work either with the MobileSim simulator or on a real robot's onboard computer. (Or use -remoteHost to connect to a wireless ethernet-serial bridge.)
