You're a dev building a robot and you want a 3d simulation and/or some control software for your machine. A well known, easy to use interface. You also have finite time and want to enjoy life, so you need something simple to code and painless for your customers. Robot Overlord is for you.
Robot Overlord gamifies industrial robot programming. It makes controlling them an intuitive experience driven by immediate visual feedback and allowing a user to manipulate them in real time. It will enable telerobotics and drive-by-wire. It will enable simulating robots for better project planning and shorter development times. It wants to work with VR.
Think of it as ROS for Windows & Mac users. The focus is on ease of use; familiar, consistent user interface; and abstracting away device specific things like config files or text commands.
Robot Overlord 3 makes it easy for your to simulate and program robots. It's great for robot arms, dogs, crabs, and more. Join us! Help make robots easier for everyone.
I was suffering writer's block and so about a month ago I restarted from scratch and it has been SO GOOD. The system looks and runs better than ever before, there are more robots than ever before, and I am over the moon delighted at how much better things are flowing.
First off, the new system has dockable tabs, so rearrange to your heart's content.
Second, the graphics have finally left the fixed-function pipeline behind and now use shaders. Note the cast shadows. Chef's kiss gorgeous!
Third, there are more robots in the system than ever before. If you have a robot that CAN'T be simulated... challenge accepted!(back: Sixi3, Ben, K1, AR4, Mantis, Arctos, Meca500, PAROL6. front: crab, dog, and stewart examples)
In an effort to make less terrible code I've build a DHRobot that uses D-H parameters. This greatly simplifies the underlying fabric of all the robot arms in the code. I've already got better IK working in the SHSixi2 and shortly I will be upgrading the other arms to use the new system.
Next is to get JInput working so that I can drive with a joystick.
