The SirBot Project
The SirBot Project provides an easy way to build, program, control, and monitor amateur robots.
Programming a bot is done writing a Python class, thanks to the SirBot API
. A protocol declaration syntax
is used to define what can be done (primitive
actions). Using a Python CLI, the robot can be interactively controlled
and dynamically programmed
. While the bot is performing several actions, every piece of information is able to produce events
, thanks to the event declaration syntax
. Events can also be created from other events (cascading events
), conditionnaly triggered under specific conditions (pre-condition
), and activate user-defined actions (post-conditions
) according to a particular event state. The SirBot Module
library provides detailed instructions to build electronic boards (PIC-based) and connect them to build a robot.
Have a look at the SirBot Labs to see what can be done using SirBot...
Have fun !!!
Easy way to build the bot
The SirBot Project provides every instructions to build a bot. A main board
provides the basic features such as communication capabilities and implementation of a defined protocol. Several module can be plugged into this main board to provide extra feature such as, currently, a servo controller, IR distance ranger. Have a look on the SirBot Module Library
to see current available modules/features. Also have a look at the SirBot Labs
, where you can find examples of robots built with SirBot.
Easy way to program the bot
SirBot is python-based, your robot is just an object Protocol. Thanks to the power of python and its librairies, performing complex actions is (almost) trivial. No C++ here... just a protocol declaration syntax, easy to use.
Easy way to control the bot
Because SirBot is python-based, you can access your bot with a python CLI, such as ipython, and interactively control and program your bot. Soon, a graphical interface will allow to visually control your robot.
Easy way to monitor the bot's actions
While the bot performs several actions, every piece of information is able to produce events, thanks to the event declaration syntax. Events can also be created from other events (cascading events), conditionnaly triggered under specific conditions (pre-condition), and activate user-defined actions (post-conditions) according to a particular event state.
Not really a bot, SirProbe is actually a digital probe able to record logical levels (up to 20 000 levels/second). SirProbe is here to help you debug your circuit :)
The SirBot Ranger is able to measure distances, and detect obstacles such as fruits...
