======================================== Autonomous Robot Simulator (ARS) ======================================== ARS is a physically-accurate open-source 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, as well as in teaching and educational activities. It will encompass a wide range of tools spanning from kinematics and dynamics simulation to robot interfacing and control. The software is implemented in Python integrating the `Open Dynamics Engine (ODE) <https://sourceforge.net/projects/opende/>`_ and the `Visualization Toolkit (VTK) <http://www.vtk.org/>`_. Requirements ==================== * Python 2.7 (developed with 2.7.3) http://www.python.org/download/releases/2.7.3/ * ODE (Open Dynamics Engine) 0.12 (from rev 1864 could work but is untested) with Python bindings http://sourceforge.net/projects/opende/ http://sourceforge.net/projects/arsproject/files/ODE/ * VTK (Visualization Toolkit) 5.8 (developed with 5.8.0 and used to be 5.2.1) with Python bindings http://www.vtk.org/VTK/resources/software.html https://sourceforge.net/projects/arsproject/files/VTK/ Documentation ==================== The documentation is hosted at `ReadTheDocs.org <http://autonomous-robot-simulator.rtfd.org>`_ and it is generated dynamically after each commit to the repository.
