Transterpreter Project's Portable IDE for SRV-1

Howard Gordon writes, "The Transterpreter group has built a highly interactive cross-platform IDE for developing and running robot code using the occam-pi language. The developers have been able to easily integrate the core vision and mobility features of the SRV-1 platform with the core concurrency features of occam-pi." If you haven't heard of Transterpreter yet, it's a "small, portable, open-source runtime for exploring concurrency". The Transterpreter is Free Software licensed under the GNU GPL. The Transterpreter evolved from a project to create a highly-portable occam-pi interpreter for the Transputer microprocessor. Since then it has evolved into a general purpose language that's ideally suited for robotics applications. The new IDE is interesting because it makes the vision and mobility features of the SRV-1 robot easy to use through the occam-pi language. The Surveyor SRV-1 is a Blackfin BF537 based robot. For more details on new SRV-1 IDE see Howard's blog post.
