Networked Robotic Systems

Player Player provides a network interface to many robot and sensor hardware. Player supports multiple concurrent client connections to devices, which makes it possible for distributed and collaborative sensing and control. Click here for more information.
Stage Stage is capable of simulating a population of mobile robots moving and sensing in a two-dimensional environment. There are various sensor models provided, such as sonar, pan-tilt-zoom camera, scanning laser rangefinder and odometry.
Gazebo Gazebo is a three dimensional multi-robot simulator. Like Stage, it is capable of simulating a population of robots, sensors and objects, but does so in a three-dimensional world.


Distributed Sensor Networks

NS-3 NS-3 is a network simulator written in C++ which provides packet data models along with a simulation engine and visualizer. NS-3 is primary operated and executed on a Linux system with C++ and Python development tools. Beyond providing the communicating nodes, their respective network interface cards, the communication channels, protocols and topologies; NS-3 also supports the concept of an application which run upon the nodes and drive unique network simulations.
