Urbi goes Open Source

Gostai releases an Open Source Edition of Urbi (Urbi 2.1 – Open Source AGPL v3)

URBI is a software development platform for robotics that supports asynchronous event management and orchestration. URBI also provides software components and interfaces to many robots like Lego NXT and Aldebaran Nao.

Recently, Gostai have decided to go Open Source and release a new version of URBI under a licence AGPL v3 (they also maintain a commercial licence for commercial partners). Source code is available for the URBI Kernel, however the code of the Gostai Studio graphical interface is not included in the open source initiative.
