(Mobile Robot software)

  • AU Robot Servers (AURS) includes servers for soft real-time processing, e.g.: camera and laser scanner processing.
  • RHD (Robot Hardware Daemon) is the hardware abstraction layer, with interface to real-time sensors and actuators.
  • MRC - see SMR below - is the real-time movement control (and mission control using the SMR-CL language)
