Evolution Robotics adds ERSP 3.0 for Windows


If you're going to build a robot, your choices for SDKs are usually only on Linux or embedded systems. But now, Evolution Robotics has a SDK for Windows developers.

The Windows version features the core navigation and vision technology of the original breakthrough SDK. Patent-pending vSLAM navigation enables robotic devices to operate completely autonomously with knowledge of their environment and surrounding objects using a single low-cost camera. Also included is Evolution Robotics' advanced object recognition technology, which is already being used to support vision functionality in consumer robots such as Sony's AIBO.

In addition, the Windows version incorporates Microsoft's speech support. This, combined with critical infrastructure and core documentation tailored to the Windows environment, gives companies increased flexibility in developing advanced software tools needed to engineer powerful, autonomous applications quickly and easily.

We're going to see what's possible with this soon and will let ya know (and no, we won't be building a locker room bot).
