Despite many decades of work in robotics, we are still lacking a well-accepted common software architecture, middleware, and shared low-level functionality. Most research groups still write their own systems, and any software developed by these groups tends to be strongly tied to their architecture, their middleware, and their robots. This make the sharing of software and, by extension, well-implemented algorithms, extremely difficult, if not impossible. This lack of sharing is seriously… CONTINUE READING
