The iCub is an open source cognitive humanoid robotic platform.
AKIRA is an open source C++ framework for designing distributed, modular agent architectures (e.g., schema-based, behaviour-based, etc.) with support for decentralized, asynchronous and parallel processing with libraries for implementing soft computing algorithms (neural networks, fuzzy logic, fuzzy cognitive maps, etc.).
AmonI – Artificial Models of Natural Intelligence provides resources for Behavior Oriented Design (BOD), POSH Action Selection, and more. Behaviour oriented design is a methodology for developing intelligent systems. It extends object oriented design to the special problems of proactive systems, including real-time systems for dynamic environments.
BECCA (Brain-Emulating Cognition and Control Architecture) An Open-source Artificial General Intelligence Platform.
CAST: The CoSy Architecture Schema Toolkit is a software toolkit to support the developments of intelligent systems based on a space of possible architecture designs described by the CoSy Architecture Schema (CAS). The CoSy Architecture Schema Toolkit (CAST) is a software implementation of this schema designed to allow researchers (primarily in the fields of AI and robotics) to develop instantiations of the schema. The toolkit supports C++ and Java, and provides a communication framework for distributing an instantiation across a network. Its primary scientific purpose is to maintain a separation between a system’s architecture and the content of its architecture, allowing one to be varied independently of the other.
YARP: Yet Another Robot Platform is a thin middleware for humanoid robots (and more). YARP supports building a robot control system as a collection of programs communicating in a peer-to-peer way, with an extensible family of connection types (tcp, udp, multicast, local, MPI, mjpg-over-http, XML/RPC, tcpros, …) that can be swapped in and out to match your needs. It also supports similarly flexible interfacing with hardware devices. The strategic goal is to increase the longevity of robot software projects.
