Cooperative Robotic Watercraft

Small, autonomous watercraft are an ideal approach to a number of applications in flood mitigation and response, environmental sampling, and numerous other applications. We are developing low cost airboats: flat-bottomed boats that use an above-water fan to propel themselves forward safely and effectively through shallow or debris-filled water.

Plinth

Plinth is a lightweight, cross-platform 3D game engine that uses available open-source libraries and lua to allow for simple, rapid prototyping of games. The project is hosted on google code.

Robotutils

This Java library is intended to simplify the development of robot infrastructure code by implementing a number of basic data types and techniques that are commonly used in robotics. It may be useful for other applications as well. It includes implementations of several well-known algorithms, including A* and D*.
