All robots are born of a standard

Japanese researchers have developed a software platform open source to break the humanoid and simulation of all mechanical devices.

Accelerate research and development in robotics and allow the sharing of best ideas. It is the objective of OpenHRP3 (Open Architecture Human-Centered Robotics Platform 3), a new software package for the simulation of the various robots. The software is an improved version of Open HRP2, a technology platform earlier which was mainly for the simulation of humanoid and was distributed in binary. Issued in Open Source, Open HRP3 allows for its share of dynamic simulation and video machines as diverse as robot arms, mobile robots with wheels or humanoid robots. Open HRP3 allows for software travel planning, control of movements or visual feedback and many other operations.  Continue reading
