Paper Abstract

This paper introduces a tool developed for remote operation and simulation of swarms of robots. The tool provides a possibility for the user to easily and simultaneously operate multiple robots remotely. The robots can be either simulated or real physical robots. In addition to direct control of the robots, the user interface part of the tool can be used to develop robot behaviors using plug-ins made with Java or our graphical state machine editor. The development and testing of behaviors can be facilitated by using methods tested with the supporting simulation features of the tool before controlling real robots.
