ARS (Autonomous Robot Simulator) is a physically-accurate simulation suite for research and development of mobile manipulators and, in general, any multi-body system. It is modular, easy to learn and use, and can be a valuable tool in the process of robot design, in the development of control and reasoning algorithms, and in teaching and educational activities. It will encompass a wide range of tools spanning from kinematics and dynamics simulation to robot interfacing and control.
Crossbones is used to generate 3D skeletons based on Total Station data, or similar digital data sets from optical surveys, created using the new X-Bones recording methodology. It is intended as a tool for for rapid surveying and visualization of dense skeletal assemblages, such as in mass graves or cemeteries.
