FroboMind is a robot control system software platform designed for field robotics research. It provides the means of using the same generic platform across different projects , field robots and implements and hereby maximizing reuse of existing work.

The aim of FroboMind is to standardize robot software development across projects, robots and implements and optimize the robot software in terms of:

  • Modularity and code reuse in order to decrease time spent on software development, debugging and testing.
  • Extensibility and scalability, It must accommodate implementations from small student projects to advanced research project.
