Player provides a language-independent networked interface to robots and their sensors. Supported devices include Pioneer 2DX robots with sonar, odometry & compass, SICK laser rangefinder, ACTS color vision system, GPS, gripper and wireless communications. Stage provides a population of simulated Player devices. Controllers designed using Stage have been shown to work unchanged on real robots and vice versa. Stage aims for low-fidelity simulation of many devices, rather than perfect models.
Koalog Constraint Solver is a powerful constraint solver written in Java. It provides cutting-edge technology for solving satisfaction and optimization problems, including scheduling, time-tabling, resource-allocation, puzzles (sudoku.koalog.com is powered by Koalog Constraint Solver), and configuration (Koalog Configurator is powered by Koalog Constraint Solver).
RobotFlow is a mobile robotics tookit based on the FlowDesigner project. FlowDesigner is a data-flow oriented architecture, similar to Simulink (Matlab) or Labview that is free and versatile. The visual programming interface provided in the FlowDesigner project will help people to better visualize & understand what is really happening in the robot's control loops, sensors, actuators, by using graphical probes and debugging in real-time.
Agent Farms is a system for modeling and simulation of complex, multi-agent based systems. The system can be used for creating models of multi-agent systems, interactive and distributed simulation, observation and visualisation of the simulation, and population modification and migration. On those models one can learn about the evolution of strategies in the populations of agents.
The Freehand Formula Entry System is a research prototype for recognizing online handwritten mathematical notation, developed jointly by researchers in New Zealand, the United States and Canada. A user draws expressions with a mouse or data tablet, and LaTeX, a bitmap, and an operator tree are produced as output. Symbol recognition and expression interpretation are performed as the user draws.
RuStem is a fast Ruby module with the the Porter stemming algorithm (a process for removing the commoner morphological and inflexional endings from words in English; its main use is as part of a term normalisation process that is usually done when setting up Information Retrieval systems).
