The Allegro Dog comes pre-installed with SimLab's RoboticsLab™ and the RealtimeRobotics™ realtime add-on. This allows you develop Allegro Dog controllers and test them on the system in hard real time.
To facilitate the productivity of robotics researchers and engineers, RoboticsLab™ aims at providing systematic support for the whole spectrum of development from prototyping to the robust control of hardware systems. Every aspect of our software and its use has been examined from the viewpoint of the robotics engineer, greatly reducing the need for specialized knowledge in the low-level details.
