It's a Bootloader for Microchip, Atmel, NXP, TI and 8051 devices.
A Bootloader is a firmware running in the microcontroler device which allows the user to send it's own firmware without the need of a programmer.
A MATLAB toolbox for simulating the movement of the iRobot Create. Contains multiple GUIs for creating maps and other input, showing the movement of the Create, and replaying a previously saved session.
OpenPOWERLINK is an Open Source Industrial Ethernet stack for communication in hard real-time. It can be operated as both, Managing Node (master) and Controlled Node (slave).
PROS is a lightweight and fast alternative operating system for the VEX Cortex Microcontroller. It features multitasking, low-level control, and Wiring compatible functions to harness the full power of the Cortex. With a real-time kernel based on FreeRTOS and a development environment built on Eclipse CDT, PROS uses proven software to increase the reliability and usability of the VEX development system across all three major computing platforms.
iCub is an open platform for scientists interested in investigating issues in embodied cognition. Here you find all the software and hardware documentation.
The Robotics Library (RL) is a self-contained C++ library for rigid body kinematics and dynamics, motion planning, and control. It covers spatial vector algebra, multibody systems, hardware abstraction, path planning, collision detection, and visualization.
