- The Robotis Bioloid is a hobbyist and educational robot kit produced by the Korean
robot manufacturer Robotis. The Bioloid platform consists of components and small,
modular servomechanisms called Dynamixels, which can be used in a daisy-chained fashion
to construct robots of various conﬁgurations, such as wheeled, legged, or humanoid robots.
The Bioloid system is thus comparable to the LEGO Mindstorms and VEXplorer kits.
- This tool provides a graphical user interface to a remote Urbi server (see
Section 33.1). Unix users (GNU/Linux or Mac OS X) can use the traditional telnet tool.
Windows users are invited to use Gostai Console instead. See Listing 2.

- Also called UEdit, Gostai urbiscript Editor (Section 33.2) is a lightweight urbiscript
source code editor with semantic highlighting. It is available for Windows and GNU/Linux

- This tool (see Section 33.3), which includes the features of Gostai Console, allows to
build easily elaborate remote controller for robots. It provides various widgets to visualize
data from the robot (including video and sound), and to modify the state of the

- This tool (see Section 33.4), includes all the features of Gostai Console and Gostai
Lab. It is a high-level Integrated Development Environment for Urbi. Its formalism is based on
Hierarchical Finite State Machines.

- The Segway Robotic Mobility Platform is a robotic platform based on the Segway Personal
Transporter. See http://rmp.segway.com.
- Real-time Transport Protocol (RFC 3550). A protocol designed for streaming (for instance
- Robot Operating System, http://www.ros.org/, developed by Willow Garage,
http://www.willowgarage.com/. It is an abstraction layer on top of the genuine operating
system (such as GNU/Linux) that provides hardware abstraction, device control, common
algorithms, message-passing between processes, and package management.
- The Spykee is a WiFi-enabled robot built by Meccano (known as Erector in the United
States). It is equipped with a camera, speaker, microphone, and moves using two tracks. See
