* Other Open Source Robotics Projects

The Open Automaton Project may share some common ground with these projects, so it is possible that some of the concepts, and even the open source code could be of interest.

Name Description
PYRO Python Robotics A library, environment, GUI, and low-level drivers to explore AI and robotics.
Player/Stage Development tools for robot sensor applications. Player is a device interface. Stage is a simulator.
Orca Orca is an open-source framework for developing component-based robotic systems. It provides the means for defining and developing the building-blocks which can be pieced together to form arbitrarily complex robotic systems, from single vehicles to distributed sensor networks.
MARIE MARIE is a robotic development and integration environment focused on software reusability and exploitation of already available APIs and middlewares frequently used in robotics.
Miro Miro is a distributed object oriented framework for mobile robot control, based on CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture) technology.
The Rossum Project An attempt to collect and distribute robotics software.
RoboBricks Project Electronic modules that allow a small robot to be quickly assembled. Based on 8-bit PIC microcontrollers from Microchip.
Orocos Open source robot control software project.
Carmen Open source robot navigation toolkit from Carnegie Mellon University.
Robotic Operating System A framework for behaviour-based robotic systems. Includes a server for coordinating the passing of data between behaviour software components that can be written in any language.

* Robotics Community Web Sites

These web sites publish interesting news and information articles, and allow you to subscribe as a community member, so that you can contribute to community discussions and content.

Name Description
ROBOTS.NET A robotics community web site with a large user base, robot gallery, and lots of news and information about robot competitions, industrial robotics and amateur robotics.

* Amateur Robotics Discussion Groups

These popular amateur robotics discussion forums have worldwide membership. They provide an excellent sounding board for sharing ideas, and have several willing helpers to solve technical robotics problems.

Name Description
Seattle Robotics Society Worldwide group of robotic enthusiasts who are active in discussing areas of technology related to robotics, electronics, mechanics, and software.
The Robotics Club An active online group of robotic enthusiasts who hold frequent live chats.
