Robotics developers are being invited to snap up limited spaces to a brand new robotics software development kit from BOW, ahead of its wider launch this summer.
BOW (formerly known as Cyberselves) is giving 200 developers until the 5th of March to register for one year of free access to its SDK ahead of the public launch.
The software will enable users to simplify robot programming, enable local and remote virtual reality immersive control, and input actions without having to code a robot from scratch.
Sheffield-based BOW will launch the SDK later this year, enabling developers to simplify using robots, including programming movement sequences.
The SDK is responsive to Python, C++, C# for Unity and Golang with more languages in development. Early users of the system will also have access to a feedback portal to share their experiences of using the software, and share applications they have created within it.
Daniel Camilleri, Founder and CEO at BOW said: “The BOW SDK does for robotics what Windows did for the personal computer or what Android did for the smartphone. We are enabling robot applications to be coded once and deployed to, and on, any robot. This capability, taken for granted with other technologies, is bizarrely not available for robots today and we want to change that.
“We are getting ready to launch this system for all to use, but before then we are inviting a limited number of people to try out premium BOW SDK features, and share their applications with each other. Our mission is to lower the barriers to entry to robotics, and encourage its widespread adoption with the dream of a robot in every home.
“We are coming to a crunch point with robotics where the sector needs standardisation, and we believe there is a strong appetite for that. This is an opportunity for the robotics community to join us and bring their own ideas to life.”
Developers, software professionals, and students can sign-up for pre-release exclusive access to BOW SDK until the 26th of February on www.usebow.com. During trial, developers will be given access to leave reviews of the Software Development Kit on Discord server via www.usebow.com.
