Thank you for giving an interest in the Neurorobotics Platform. In this documentation, we will try to make you familiar with the NRP and guide you to start working with the platform.
The Neurorobotics Platform’s purpose is to offer neuroscientists a tool to perform in-silico cognitive or lower-level neural experiments on virtual Guinea pigs, be them biologically inspired or not. It will, on the other side, provide roboticists with the possibility to experiment on their robots with brain models instead of classical controllers.
The platform will provide them with:
Virtual bodies (robots, bio-inspired)
Virtual environments to make them live
Interactive tools to connect these to a brain model
Interactive tools to design and program their experiment
Graphical monitors and loggers
This manual will help the users to get comfortable with the Experiment Simulation Viewer. It is divided into chapters that cover the main features. The manual does not have to be read linearly.

The platform is developed by fortiss, TUM, FZI, SSSA and led by Prof. Alois Knoll and Dr. Egidio Falotico. Until May 2019, Dr. Marc-Oliver Gewaltig from EPFL was also co-leader of the platform development.
