Webots simulation, remote-control and cross-compilation for the e-puck robot.

Webots is an efficient 3D physics-based robot simulator that provides you with a rapid prototyping environment for modelling, programming and simulating mobile robots. The included robot libraries allow you to transfer your control programs to many commercially available real mobile robots, including the e-puck robot. The latest version of Webots comes with:

  • several simulations samples for the e-puck robot, with both kinematics (based on ENKI) and dynamics models (based on the ODE library).
  • many simulated e-puck devices: 3D accelerometer, differential wheels, proximity sensors, light sensors, wireless communication, LEDs and camera.
  • a remote-control tool allowing you to monitor and remote control a real e-puck robot from your controller program over Bluetooth.
  • a complete cross-compilation system allowing you to cross-compile your robot controllers and upload them onto real e-puck robots over Bluetooth.

Webots and the included e-puck cross-compilation tools, run on Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. The free version of Webots allows you to cross-compile e-puck programs.
