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 if you have suggestions for additional pages to add.
CarMeN (Carnegie Mellon Navigation Toolkit) integrated solutions to indoor robot navigation and mapping problems
CMVision (CMU) library to perform general (i.e. shape or color) obstacle avoidance
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
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
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.
Yampa (Yale) is a language having continuous time-varying behaviors and discrete event-based switching. "Arrows" are used to structure programs and improve efficiency.
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.
