DevBot Core

DevBot Core is our development platform written in C for creating mobile robot applications. It provides a clean and elegant architecture for robotic actuators and sensors such as infra-red and touch sensors or more sophisticated devices such as scanning range-finders. Integrated is support for network and wireless communication of multiple robots, distributed controller architecture on several processors and a backend to the DevBot Simulator. DevBot Core allows you to forget about the details of device access and data representation through providing interface categories, a selection of which is shown on the left.

Building upon the DevBot platform is simple and intuitive. Edinburgh Robotics' aim is to provide an interface to robot programming that is easily accessible and provides sufficient flexibility necessary in future appliances. DevBot is built around a highly modular core, using open-source components and providing open interfaces. This offers developers unprecedented flexibility to extend the system and integrate it with existing software.

Our platform integrates naturally with the leading open-source development environment eclipse which is comprised of extensible frameworks, tools and runtimes for building, deploying and managing software across the lifecycle.

Here are example screenshots of eclipse working with DevBot:
