Robot World


Robot World aims to be a distributed physical environment inhabited by programmable robots, spanning across countless computers on the internet in true peer-to-peer fashion.

Robot World components

  • Parser / compiler compiles robot programs into byte code, stored in a .xml file
  • Inject - send a robot program to the world
  • RobotWorld - the world simulation program
  • dsm - the bytecode disassembler
  • rowo.y - language grammar file

What is working?

  • The compiler to bytecode, although the language is not complete
  • The disassembler from bytecode to pseudo assembler
  • Robot injection into robotworld using http PUT

What's left to do?

  • The robotworld simulation program
  • Language specification
  • Object properties
  • Bytecode engine isn't complete
  • A graphical frontend API would be nice

Source code documentation (generated by Doxygen). Select "File List" from the doxygen index page to see a list of all files in the example. Then select "[code]" to read the source code of that file. Files beginning with lowercase are usually the main() starting point, and files beginning with uppercase usually contains a class of the same name as the file itself.
