Open Source Computer Vision Library
The Open Source Computer Vision Library has >2500 algorithms, extensive documentation and sample code for real-time computer vision. It works on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Android and iOS. Homepage: opencv.org Q&A forum: answers.opencv.org Documentation: docs.opencv.org Please pay special attention to our tutorials! http://docs.opencv.org/3.2.0/d9/df8/tutorial_root.html Books about the OpenCV are described here: http://opencv.org/books.html
Supports NxT, Asuro, Arduino-Bot and many more. With simulator.
TuxMinds ist ein Programmdesigner mit dem Programme für diverse Roboter ganz einfach "zusammengeklickt" werden koennen. Mit dem eingebauten Simulator können die Programme am PC entworfen und getestet werden. Unterstützt werden die Modelle ASURO, NxT, RcX, ARDUINO-Bot. Eigene Roboterhardware kann integriert werden! Im Bereich "Files/tuxminds_precompiled" finden sich iso-Dateien die direkt auf CD gebrannt werden können. Man startet einfach von der CD und kann TuxMinds ausprobieren - ganz ohne Installation. Gespeichert werden können eigene Dateien und Einstellungen auf einem Stick oder auf der Festplatte. Probiert es aus und mailt uns eure Anregungen!
The Player Project: Player is a networked interface to robots and sensors. Stage and Gazebo are Player-friendly multiple-robot simulators. The software aims for POSIX compliance and runs on most UNIX-like OS's. Some parts also work on Windows.

Evolving Artificial Life
Critterding is a "Petri dish" universe in 3D that demonstrates evolving artificial life. Critters start out with completely random brains and bodies, but will automatically start evolving into something with much better survival skills.
MARIE is a robotic development and integration environment focused on software reusability and exploitation of already available APIs and middlewares used in robotics. Its main purpose is to create a rapid-prototyping approach to robotics developments.
Geeks Artificial Neural Network (G.A.N.N) is an open source project that started with the philosophy of being a new more advanced A.N.N that works as a platform for other applications. In other words, G.A.N.N should be considered as a "Black Box".
MBDyn_sim_suite is a collection of free pre&post-processing tools and simulation models for the open-source multi-body analysis software MBDyn forming a general purpose simulation environment for structural dynamics with an emphasis on wind turbines.
Spark is a physical simulation system. The primary purpose of this system is to provide a *generic* simulator for different kinds of simulations. In these simulations, agents can participate as external processes.
The Sick LIDAR Matlab/C++ Toolbox offers stable and easy-to-use C++ drivers for Sick LMS and Sick LD LIDARs. It provides a Matlab Mex interface for streaming LIDAR returns directly into Matlab. Also included are config utilities, examples, and tutorials.
This project is for converting PCB RS274X gerber files to RS274NGC Gcode files. Currently this software is in the early development stages. Currently working to simplify the program and improve reliability.
PHPXref is a developers tool, written in Perl, that will cross reference and extract inline documentation from a collection of PHP scripts. It generates simple HTML output suitable for browsing offline.

A cross-platform library that computes fast and accurate SIFT image features. libsiftfast provides Octave/Matlab scripts, a command line interface, and a python interface (siftfastpy). Optimized with SIMD instructions and OpenMP .
Analysis of undersea fish videos
The Fish4knowledge project investigated: information abstraction and storage methods for analyzing undersea video data (from 10E+15 pixels to 10E+12 units of information), machine and human vocabularies for detecting & describing fish, flexible process architectures to process the data and scientific queries and effective specialised user query interfaces. A combination of computer vision, database storage, workflow and human computer interaction methods were used to achieve this. The project used live video feeds from 10 underwater cameras as a testbed for investigating more generally applicable methods for capture, storage, analysis and querying of multiple video streams. We collated a public database from 3 years containing video summaries of the observed fish and associated descriptors. Expert web-based interfaces were developed for use by marine researchers, allowing unprecedented access to live and previously stored videos, or previously extracted information.
