The Software we're using is called Gazebo and only runs on Linux.  If you don't have a Linux machine don't worry, depending on your computer Linux can be run in a virtual machine, or you could potentially setup your computer to dual boot.

Along with Gazebo, the communication infrastructure will use the Robot Operating System (ROS).  We encourage you to familiarize yourself with ROS while you have time.

After you’ve registered, take a look at the ARIAC general information page to get started.
