Here’s a video of an RMP 50 Omni being operated by a version of the Player robot interface software that was configured to control four wheels at SRI’s Artificial Intelligence Center


Player Project setup for a Segway RMP


The Player Project (formerly the Player/Stage Project) creates free, open source robot control interface software that is widely used in robotics education and research.

Instructions on how to install and compile Player 2.1.x for a Segway RMP are available here, thanks to Régis Vincent at SRI International’s Artificial Intelligence Center.
