Player The Player Project (formerly the Player/Stage Project) is a project to create free software for research into robotics and sensor systems.[1] Its components include the Player network server and the Stage robot platform simulators. Although accurate statistics are hard to obtain, Player is one of the most popular open-source robot interfaces in research and post-secondary education.[2] Most of the major intelligent robotics journals and conferences regularly publish papers featuring real and simulated robot experiments using Player and Stage.

Last week, DARPA officially announced its Robotics Challenge for disaster robots. According to the program, teams that don't want (or can't afford) to build their own robots will be able to prove themselves using a standardized simulation environment (and later may receive a real robot to use in the competition). Now we got official confirmation that this standardized simulation environment will be based on the Gazebo simulator, one the primary tools used in the ROS community, and will be provided by the Open Source Robotics Foundation.

MORSE MORSE is an generic simulator for academic robotics. It focuses on realistic 3D simulation of small to large environments, indoor or outdoor, with one to tenths of autonomous robots. MORSE can be entirely controlled from the command-line. Simulation scenes are generated from simple Python scripts. MORSE comes with a set of standard sensors (cameras, laser scanner, GPS, odometry,...), actuators (speed controllers, high-level waypoints controllers, generic joint controllers) and robotic bases (quadrotors, ATRV, Pioneer3DX, generic 4 wheel vehicle, PR2,...).

Robotics simulator | WIKI Robotics simulator | WIKI A robotics simulator is used to create embedded applications for a robot without depending physically on the actual machine, thus saving cost and time. In some case, these applications can be transferred on the real robot (or rebuilt) without modifications. The term robotics simulator can refer to several different robotics simulation applications. For example, in mobile robotics applications, behavior-based robotics simulators allow users to create simple worlds of rigid objects and light sources and to program robots to interact with these worlds. Behavior-based simulation allows for actions that are more biological in nature when compared to simulators that are more binary, or computational. In addition, behavior-based simulators may "learn" from mistakes and are capable of demonstrating the anthropomorphic quality of tenacity.

Robot Operating System (ROS) is a software framework for robot software development, (see also Robotics middleware) providing operating system-like functionality on a heterogeneous computer cluster. ROS was originally developed in 2007 under the name switchyard by the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory in support of the Stanford AI Robot STAIR[2][3] project. As of 2008, development continues primarily at Willow Garage, a robotics research institute/incubator, with more than twenty institutions collaborating in a federated development model.[4][5] ROS has two basic "sides": The operating system side ros as described above and ros-pkg, a suite of user contributed packages (organized into sets called metapackages) that implement functionality such as simultaneous localization and mapping, planning, perception, simulation etc. Robot Operating System Robot Operating System
Industrial ROS-Industrial Overview ROS-Industrial is a BSD (legacy) / Apache 2.0 (preferred) licensed program that contains libraries, tools and drivers for industrial hardware. It is supported and guided by the ROS-Industrial Consortium. The goals of ROS-Industrial are to: Create a community supported by industrial robotics researchers and professionals Provide a one-stop location for industry-related ROS applications Develop robust and reliable software that meets the needs of industrial applications Combine the relative strengths of ROS with existing industrial technologies (i.e. combining ROS high-level functionality with the low-level reliability and safety of industrial robot controllers).

ROS | gazebo External Documentation This is primarily a third party wrapper package with external documentation. Core Gazebo-ROS Plugins In addition to including a stable version of Gazebo, this package package builds two core plugins for integrating Gazebo with ROS. ROS API Plugin This plugin initializes a ROS node called "gazebo" and then integrates the ROS callback scheduler with Gazebo's internal scheduler to provide the ROS interfaces described below.

Development on our OpenNI/ROS integration for the Kinect and PrimeSense Developers Kit 5.0 device continues as a fast pace. For those of you participating in the contest or otherwise hacking away, here's a summary of what's new. As always, contributions/patches are welcome. Driver Updates: Bayer Images, New point cloud and resolution options via dynamic_reconfigure Suat Gedikli, Patrick Mihelich, and Kurt Konolige have been working on the low-level drivers to expose more of the Kinect features. The low-level driver now has access to the Bayer pattern at 1280x1024 and we're working on "Fast" and "Best" (edge-aware) algorithms for de-bayering. ROS: stacks news
