I finished writing the C++ GUI for the controlling the Trossen PhantomX Robotturret.
The first release of the code is available here:

I wrote this because I wanted a C++ controller with a GUI and I couldn't build the ones available. This is a simple GUI and controller written in C++ using QT libraries.

I use the QTextserialport library which is a small but very useful serial port library written in C++/QT, which I have included in the project. I designed a simple serial protocol, and coded a Arduino server for the ArbotiX board to talk in this protocol to the computer controller. I previously wrote a Matlab controller which speaks the same protocol which was featured on the Matlab FileExchange:
