Welcome to the Robotics Community on java.net! All of the projects that are a part of our community are listed here. Who is the Robotics Community? We are programmers on java.net writing open source code for Java, Java derived languages and hardware devices which support Java interfaces. We host projects that help us explore how intelligent devices augment human abilities. We especially encourage projects that create tools for supporting robotics education.
The Sumo Robots originally debuted as the "JavaNator" at James Gosling's JavaOne 2002 keynote. They were subsequently used for the SunOne Sumo Java Programming Competition at SunOne 2003. The Sumos show off real-time Java features using the Ajile processor packaged in a Systronix Jstamp. And they demonstrate a simple Java interface for controlling robots for the ancient and honorable sport of Japanese Sumo Robot Wrestling!
