The Urbi Robotic Software Platform Goes Open Source

Filed under
OSS

Urbi is an advanced robotics operating system, already available for a large number of robots like Aldebaran® Nao, Segway® RMP or Lego® Mindstorm, among 15 other different robots. One of its main innovations lies in a new orchestration script language called urbiscript, which natively integrates parallelism and event-based programming. Next to Urbi, Gostai also offers the Gostai Studio graphical programming tools, and compatibility with various simulators, making the Urbi framework one of the most advanced and complete solution for robot and complex system programming available today.

Remarkably, Urbi is also very simple to use, even for beginners. It is perfectly suitable for advanced industrial or academics applications, as well as for the educational market.

The source code is covered by an Affero GNU GPL v3 license and is available for immediate download and use from Gostai’s website. This initiative will allow developers worldwide to participate in the growth of the industry's most innovative robotic software solution.

V2 Of KDBUS Published For Linux Kernel Review

The second revision to the Linux kernel based D-Bus implementation is now available for review. Greg Kroah-Hartman on Thursday night posted the "v2" revision of the KDBUS implementation for providing the kernel with a new IPC implementation that resembles the existing user-space D-Bus daemon while adding extra features. Among the changes in this revision to KDBUS are exposing its control files and other information via a new kdbusfs file-system, KDBUS expects to be mounted to /sys/fs/kdbus, a new KDBUS domain is created for each time kdbusfs is mounted, and various other low-level changes. More details via the patch-set series. It's not clear yet whether KDBUS will be ready for merging in the Linux 3.19 kernel or will be held off until Linux 3.20 or longer. Read more
