Open Source Initiative

A huge part our research effort is the sharing of our findings through both our publications and our actual algorithms and approaches. To maximize its effectiveness, we have open sourced most of our software to provide access to resources and knowledge that we have developed over the years for our community of researchers, scientists, engineers and hobbyists in an effort to advance the field of robotics. This includes many packages, algorithms, examples, our control algorithms for walking and manipulation that were used on the Atlas robot in the DARPA Robotics Challenge, and Simulation Construction Set, our cross-platform, in-house simulation library used to develop, simulate, and analyze control algorithms for our robots. All of our open source software is available under the Apache 2.0 license.
