Webots Edu & Pro
Webots™ is a development environment used to model, program and simulate mobile robots. Webots™ is designed for research and development projects. It includes the possibility to create supervisor processes for controlling robotic experiments, an extended physics programming capability and fast simulation modes for computer extensive simulations.
With Webots™ the user can design complex robotic setups, with one or several, similar or different robots, in a shared environment. The properties of each object, such as shape, color, texture, mass, friction, etc., are chosen by the user. A large choice of simulated sensors and actuators is available to equip each robot. The robot controllers can be programmed with the built-in IDE or with third party development environments. The robot behavior can be tested in physically realistic worlds. The controller programs can optionally be transferred to commercially available real robots.
Webots™ is used by over 980 universities and research centers worldwide. With Webots™, you take advantage of a proven technology that has been codeveloped by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, thoroughly tested, well documented and continuously maintained for over 10 years. The development time you save is enormous!
Starting from Webots 7, all licenses are provided as Internet floating licenses. Therefore an Internet connection is necessary to run Webots. However, it is possible to run Webots without an Internet connection if you purchase a Webots USB dongle and transfer your license from the Internet floating license server to the USB dongle. Then, the license can be easily moved to any computer and used without an Internet connection. Once on the USB dongle, the license may be returned back to the Internet floating license server at anytime and transferred again to the USB dongle later on, etc.
