Robots and Open Source

Posted 22 Mar 2002 at 14:42 UTC by steve Share This

A new article in The News & Observer describes the growing displacement of Microsoft's proprietary software with Free Software and Open Source. In particular, the article talks about Linux-based robots being developed at the NCSU Center for Robotics and Intelligent Machines. The software developed for their evolutionary mobile robots would not have been possible without the freedoms provided by Free Software which allow the user to see and modify the source code.
