Fawkes Robot Software Framework =============================== Fawkes is a component-based Software Framework for Robotic Real-Time Applications for various Platforms and Domains. It is developed and is used for cognitive robotics real-time applications like soccer and service robotics. It supports fast information exchange and efficient combination and coordination of different components to suit the needs of mobile robots operating in uncertain environments. Today, Fawkes consists of an efficient communication middleware with a hybrid blackboard and messaging design, a flexible set of software libraries to make developing robotic functionalities reasonably simple, and a coherent development and run-time environment with tools that make integrating and running robotic applications achievable. But Fawkes also comprises a large set of plugins, software components that implement typical robot functionality like self-localization, path planning, perception, or behavior execution and monitoring. Several robot platforms like the Robotino, Nao, or Roomba are supported out-of-the-box. Fawkes also integrates with other software frameworks like ROS or Player and integrates third party software like MongoDB, RRDtool, CLIPS, or OpenNI. By using ideas from aspect-oriented programming, and run-time requirement assertion by the framework, it is easy to access these resources with only a few lines of code. You can find more information, news, and current projects on the Fawkes website . Documentation of the development tools, the plugins, and how to start are available on the Fawkes Trac page . Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have questions, for example considering if Fawkes would fit your robot application .  http://www.fawkesrobotics.org  http://trac.fawkesrobotics.org  http://www.fawkesrobotics.org/about/contact/
