Welcome to the MOAST Wiki
|MOAST (Mobility Open Architecture Simulation and Tools) is a hierarchical architecture that is an implementation of NIST's RCS reference model architecture. It is intended as a general purpose research tool with applications ranging from low-level robotic control to behavior generation for groups of heterogeneous robots. In addition to research applications, MOAST has been used as the control system for team's competiting in the RoboCup rescue virtual robot competition (RoboCup) as well as the IEEE Virtual Manufacturing Automation Competition (VMAC).
