NIST RS274NGC Interpreter, a C++ library and language
specification for a G-code "dialect".
- Motion Strategy
Library: "allows easy development and testing of motion
planning algorithms for a wide variety of applications."
- OSACA: “Open System
Architecture for Controls within Automation Systems. OSACA is a
joint European project which aims to improve the competitiveness of
the manufacturers of machine tools and control systems in the world
market. The main goal of the project is to specify a system
architecture for open control systems which is manufacturer
Modular Architecture Controls (OMAC): “The OMAC API
charter is to develop a specification that defines an intelligent
closed loop controller environment to support open architecture
concepts including application portability at the source level,
interoperability of modules, and extensibility of controller
functionality. It is intended for system integrators and
applications software developers.”
- Open Automaton
Project. "The purpose of this project is to engineer modular
software and electronic components, from which it is possible to
assemble an intelligent PC-based mobile robot suitable for home or
- OpenMASK (Modular
Animation and Simulation Kit) is a platform for the development and
execution of modular motion generation in the fields of animation,
simulation and virtual reality.
