These are some of the side-products of the research carried out at the Robotics Lab.
|Software (Beta versions)
|Lego NXT Interface for LPA Prolog: This interface facilitates programming of multiple and remotely connected Lego NXT robots using LPA Prolog. You can even program mobile agents and real robots by using this interface in tandem with Typhon (see below)||Click HERE if you wish to download the Lego NXT Interface for LPA Prolog|
|Typhon: This Mobile Agent Platform (MAP) runs on LPA Prolog’s Chimera Agent System and supports mobility, dynamic code alterability, network management, partial security, etc.
(Coming soon: Beyond Chimera & Typhon, now Tartarus, the father of Typhon! The new version of Typhon, code-named Tartarus, featuring threaded mobile agents will soon make its appearance! Keep visiting this page.)

|iSpeak For Children: iSpeak for children is an interactive learning application for kids. With speech recognition technology and voice feedback system, learning alphabets, shapes, objects, calculations etc. would be a lot more easy and interesting than before. This is a brief video to see iSpeak work||Click HERE if you wish to download iSpeak|
You will require LPA Prolog and the Chimera Agent System to use the Lego NXT interface and Typhon. You can download LPA Prolog Trial Version by clicking HERE.
Chapter 25 of the book Artificial Intelligence by E. Rich, K. Knight and Shivashankar B. Nair published by McGraw Hill, provides a description on the use of LPA Prolog and the Chimera Agent System. Book details are available HERE. The relevant source code used in the book can be downloaded by clicking HERE.
Open CV 2.3.1 installation guide- Win 7 and VS2010 Help
Many students and researchers who are new to the OpenCV library often face difficulties in installing the OpenCV library in spite of the several tutorials available on the net. This is possibly because these tutorials do not cater to novices. Instead they do so to frequent users who are already aware of the OpenCV library. We hope the tutorial presented here will aid new entrants to install the library with ease. The tute (Click the link below for access) describes a step-by-step procedure, along with illustrations for better understanding, to install the OpenCV 2.3.1 library on a Windows-7, 32-bit system using Visual Studio 2010 Professional (Express) edition.
