Emulate MODBUS industrial network with devices.
FactoryController testing/verification tool. Simulate MODBUS-TCP industrial network with set of devices. Update 2017: Hardware Emulator project has been integrated to main FactoryController codebase and this repository is obsolete.
3D simulation library
A 3D simulation library using the bullet physics engine and OpenGL for rendering.
A Fuzzy Logic Control Library and Application
fuzzylite is a free and open-source fuzzy logic control library programmed in C++ for multiple platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac, iOS, Android). Its goal is to allow you to easily create fuzzy logic controllers in a few steps utilizing object-oriented programming without requiring any third-party libraries. jfuzzylite is the same fuzzylite library, but programmed entirely in Java without requiring any third-party libraries.

LinuxCNC controls CNC machines. It can drive milling machines, lathes, 3d printers, laser cutters, plasma cutters, robot arms, hexapods, and more.
Computer vision and image processing library for Qt.
This library contains among other things a set of graphical widgets for video output, performance evaluation and augmented reality. The library also provides classes for several data types usually required by computer vision and image processing applications such as vectors, matrices, quaternions and images. Thanks to a large number of wrapper functions these objects can be used with highly efficient functionality from third party libraries such as OpenCV, GNU Scientific Library...
