OUR TECHNICAL CHOICES

Rodolphe HASSELVENDER C.E.O of blue frog robotics

We made the strategic choice to open our robot architecture and use Unity3D IDE as a foundation, so anyone interested in developing applications for robots can get started right away. Today, all of the major components of our robot are open source. The IDE for BUDDY is Unity 3D. We decided to work with Unity 3D, the popular video game development platform and one that’s very relevant for robotics, for a number of reasons. Among these is that there are more than one million Unity developers in the world today, so the opportunity for the creation of a wealth of BUDDY applications is great. In addition, Unity 3D is an extremely user friendly development environment. This is important to us because we want to embrace beginner developers, as well as the expert. There’s also support for a number of primary programming languages including Python, C++, C, C#, Java and Javascript. In addition, our use of OpenCV with its extensive algorithms and which is also supported by a large global community, gives BUDDY developers unparalleled versatility. Last but not least, BUDDY is an “open-hardware-botic". BUDDY’s mechanics are open so that developers can build accessories.
