ICub Software Installation (superbuild)
This page contains detailed instructions for installing the iCub software.
The software can be compiled on different platforms, however we support Windows, Linux (Debian/Ubuntu) and macOS.
For all systems you have the following choices:
- From pre-compiled binaries: quick installation of all the software, good if you don't want to compile or modify the software, allow experimenting with the robot, the simulator and writing code using the libraries.
