Outside Resources/Links

There is a wealth of information about robotics available on the Internet, and listed below are just a few of the many useful pages. Please feel free to e-mail us at grandchallenge@darpa.mil if you have suggestions for additional pages to add.

www.cs.cmu.edu/~thrun/3d
CarMeN (Carnegie Mellon Navigation Toolkit) integrated solutions to indoor robot navigation and mapping problems

www.cs.cmu.edu/~jbruce/cmvision
CMVision (CMU) library to perform general (i.e. shape or color) obstacle avoidance

sourceforge.net/projects/yarp0
YARP (MIT) utilities for programming abstractions used in the control of humanoid robots, an inter-process communication mechanism suited to stream large quantities of robot's vision data, and supports a distributed architecture where there is no "in charge" module

www.cc.gatech.edu/ai/robot-lab/research/MissionLab/
MissionLab v5.0 (Georgia Tech) multiagent robotics mission specification and control software using high-level military-style plans and executes them with teams of real or simulated robotic vehicles

www.cs.jhu.edu/CIRL/XVision2/
XVision (Johns Hopkins Visual Tracking Software) provides generic interfaces to a wide variety of camera systems, generic visual tracking primitives, and methods for combining tracking for complex situations.

www.haskell.org/yampa/
Yampa (Yale) is a language having continuous time-varying behaviors and discrete event-based switching. "Arrows" are used to structure programs and improve efficiency.

www.cs.northwestern.edu/groups/amrg/distributions/grl/grl-2.0.zip
The GRL Language (Generic Robot Language) -- Northwestern is a programming language for behavior-based robot controllers that supports a large subset of functional programming semantics for real-time control and signal-processing applications.
