RoboML, a Robotic Markup Language

Posted 9 Mar 2001 at 14:24 UTC by steve Share This

An XML-based markup language has been developed that is applicable to a wide range of robotics tasks including human-robot interfaces. RoboML is being developed by Maxim Makatchev and S. K. Tso of the Centre for Intelligent Design Automation and Manufacturing, City University, Hong Kong. A short description can be found on and a detailed white paper (in PDF format) by the authors is also available. A Mac-based human-robot interface agent that uses RoboML will be available soon.

RobotML interface chips, posted 9 Mar 2001 at 17:01 UTC by The Swirling Brain » (Master)

I'm wondering when Dilbert will get around to making a RobotML interface chip. Still waiting for all of those cheap java chips that was touted a while back. Perhaps I can implement the RobotML in a F84 pic?

Yeah, I'm skeptical of how useful XML would be for something that has to run in real time. Sure wouldn't want to use it for things like encoding sensor data! :-) I can see how it might be useful for the human-interface aspect. It might be handy to be able to define the robots behaviour with a simple HTML-like language.
