Brain Corporation Launches Free and Premium Software Platforms Dedicated to Development of Robotic Applications

BrainOS and BrainOS Pro provide central software framework addressing
technical and business challenges of robotics development

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Brain
Corporation
, a company that makes everyday robots a reality by
providing advanced technologies and technical services
for cyber-physical systems, today announced premium and free versions of BrainOS,
a software package that provides a central framework for robotic
application development. BrainOS supports critical technologies, easily
interfaces with common peripherals and runs efficiently on low-cost
computing hardware making prototyping and development easier for
everyone from hobbyists to commercial developers. In addition to
BrainOS, Brain Corporation announced a robotic kit powered by BrainOS.
The kit, The
Geekbot Advanced with BrainOS
, allows developers to see the power of
BrainOS on a robotic platform and start developing BrainOS-powered apps.

“While there is a lot of opportunity for robotic applications, there is
a significant gap in the availability of technology that has been
specifically designed for those developing commercial products and
applications,” said Dr. Todd Hylton, Executive Vice President of Brain
Corporation. “BrainOS helps solve that problem by providing a central
technology framework that is accessible to those looking to prototype,
commercialize and monetize robotic applications.”

The software platform consist of two key components: BrainOS Core,
a message passing framework, and BrainOS Library, collections of
algorithms for perception, navigation, manipulation, control and
learning. The software runs on low-cost computing hardware such as
Raspberry Pi 2 and Snapdragon 410c, and interfaces easily with Arduino
controllers and components. The free version is ideal for hobbyists,
makers, educators, students and early-stage commercial developers and is
available by download from Brain Corporation’s website.

BrainOS Pro addresses the interests of later-stage commercial
developers with challenging products and applications by providing
additional technologies and access to advisory and technical services
from Brain Corporation’s expert team of engineers and developers.
BrainOS Pro includes proprietary library elements from Brain
Corporation, third-party libraries, additional development tools and
direct support from Brain Corporation’s expert team. BrainOS Pro is
available on Brain Corporation’s bStem single-board computer and
hardware development kit, as well as other platforms by request.

Brain Corporation’s robotic kit, The Geekbot Advanced with BrainOS, is a
two-wheeled robot with a camera and gripper sold through Trossen
Robotics for $449.95. The kit requires no soldering and is easy and
intuitive to build. Powered by a Raspberry Pi 2, the robot includes
three default behaviors including path training, autonomous ball
tracking, and telepresence. All behaviors have been implemented in
BrainOS. The Geekbot Advanced with BrainOS includes everything needed to
get started with BrainOS for robotics.
