The robot PC can run Linux or Windows.
We developed Linux-based software, starting from the open-source software that Robotis released for DARwIn-OP.
This software supports ball perception, walking, kicking, and getting-up motions.
We made the necessary modifications for the NimbRo-OP robot and included some new features, such as two gait stabilization mechanisms, tilt estimation, instability detection, and correction for the distortion of the wide-angle lens.


Fully assembled and tested robot prototypes can be ordered for an introductory price of 20.000€ plus tax and shipping from University of Bonn. 
This price is valid until December 31st, 2012
