Abstract

Programming robotic systems is not an easy task, even developing software for simple systems may be difficult, or at least cumbersome and error prone. In this document it is presented a C++ distributed component based programming framework for robotics socalled CoolBOT, around which we have started an open source initiative which is freely available via www.coolbotproject.org termed TheCoolBOTProject. This framework, started initally as a framework for easy software integration in robotics, has been improved in order to allow, not only easy integration using the CBSE paradigm, but also transparent distributed system computation.
