A software toolkit for developing applications in Robotics and Computer Vision

JdeRobot is an open source toolkit for Robotics and Computer Vision.

Robotics applications are typically distributed, made up of a collection of concurrent asynchronous components which communicate using some middleware (ROS messages, ICE, DDS...). Building robotics applications is a complex task. Integrating existing nodes or libraries, which provide already solved functionality, and using several tools may increase the software robustness and shorten the development time. JdeRobot provides several tools, libraries and reusable nodes. They have been written in C++, Python or JavaScript.

Main JdeRobot features

  • ROS friendly (full compatible with ROS-Melodic)
  • C++, Python, JavaScript
  • Open source
  • Easy installation from debian, PIP, npm or ROS packages

Our community mainly works on six development areas: 1.- Education in Robotics

  • Academy: a ROS-based framework to learn robotics and computer vision with drones, autonomous cars.... It is a collection of Python programmed exercises for engineering students.
  • Kibotics: a web based framework for teaching robotics to kids and preuniversity students.

2.- Robot Programming Tools

  • VisualStates tool for robot programming with Finite State Machines in a visual way
  • WebSim2D robot simulator with web technologies
  • PyOnBrowser: a Python to JavaScript converter

3.- DeepLearning in robotics

  • DetectionSuite tool for evaluation of detection networks
  • neuralBehaviors: neural networks for autonomous driving
  • ObjectDetector: neural networks for visual perception

4.- FPGAs in robotics

  • FPGA-robotics: programming robots with reconfigurable computing (FPGAs) using open tools as IceStudio and Symbiflow. Reusable blocks for robotics applications.
  • NeuralFPGA: running deeplearning networks on FPGAs

5.- SLAM, visual localization

  • SD-SLAM: visual SLAM algorithm
  • slam-testbed: tool for evaluation of SLAM algorithms

6.- Drones, autonomous behaviors: Mavlink, MavROS

We are registered as non-profit organization in Spain Ref.#615800.
