URJC’s JdeRobot accepted as a Google GSoC
Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a global program focused on introducing students to open source software development. Students work on a 3 month programming project with an open source organization during their break from university.
José María Cañas and colleagues have developed JdeRobot, a software development suite for robotics, computer vision and home-automation applications hosted in GSoC. These domains include sensors, actuators, and intelligent software in between. It has been designed to help in programming such intelligent software. It is written in C++ and Python, and is based on ROS and uses ROS drivers.
Other institutions granted are The Linux Foundation, Gnome, Mozilla, Moodle, Joomla and Apache.
