Very modular at both the software and hardware level, Khepera has a very efficient library of on-board applications for controlling the robot, monitoring experiments, and downloading new software. A large number of extension modules make it adaptable to a wide range of experiments.

To facilitate programming of the robot, we support several development environments, spanning from standard cross-C developments to more sophisticated tools like SysQuake, LabVIEW® or MATLAB®, to the 3D WEBOTS Khepera simulator. Please note however that this software is just a suggestion: Any other programming environment capable of communicating over a serial port can also be used. The communication protocol implemented on Khepera is described in more details within the user manual.
