Why do I need this?


In recent years, several off-the-shelf robots have become available and some of them have made their way into our homes and offices. The ability to program robots has therefore become an important skill; e.g., for robotics research as well as in several companies (such as iRobot, Willow Garage, medical robotics, and others).
