saw MRL was used to build a chess robot. I'm interested in using it to do something a little more modest and could do with some help getting started.
Arduino powered wooden chessboard: User vs board:
User moves detected by magentic reed switches, Arduino prog can send as simple nptation ; eg: e2e4
Computer moves received as similar text type messages and shown by flashing LED on square
Plus either txt to speech or simple LCD to display errors, messages etc
Connected to Rasperry PI running chess engine:
Can I use MRL on the Rasperry Pi? If so hints on getting started
Also what is the MRL chess engine, can it run a UCI engine like stockfish.
(previous solution was to run Arena chess on the Raspberry)
Any help gratefully received.
