Technical information for the iCub users in ISIR Lab
Installing iCub on your pc
To install all the software you need for developing, running the simulator, and eventually test your applications on the robot, just follow the instructions on the iCub Manual.
- A more "verbose" guide to the installation, with pointers to the manual, is here
- A short guide for installing iCub simulator in Ubuntu: pdf
- Installing other libraries for iCub: here
- the official simulator of iCub based on ODE: installation
- simulator based on python (Arboris-Python): installation and first steps
- simulator based on XDE: installation and first steps
If you want to know what happened to the iCub during his first days in ISIR, you can read this page. The page is no longer maintained because now too many things happen :)
Note: a software/hardware log is kept on the desk close to the power supplies. This log/diary is used to keep track of updates (software, firmware, cluster config, ..), hardware/software issues and failures. If you notice something weird on iCub, or a failure happens, write down on it and then mail Serena immediately!
