File README

-Autonomous Robot Simulator (ARS).
-
-ARS is a physically-accurate open-source simulation suite for research and development of mobile manipulators and, in general, any multi-body system. It is modular, easy to learn and use, and can be a valuable tool in the process of robot design, in the development of control and reasoning algorithms, as well as in teaching and educational activities.
-It will encompass a wide range of tools spanning from kinematics and dynamics simulation to robot interfacing and control.
-The software is implemented in Python integrating the Open Dynamics Engine (ODE) and the Visualization Toolkit (VTK).
-
-REQUIREMENTS
-* Python 2.7.3 (any 2.7 should work)
-	http://www.python.org/download/releases/2.7.3/
-* ODE (Open Dynamics Engine) 0.12 (from rev 1864 could work but is untested)
-	http://sourceforge.net/projects/arsproject/files/ODE/
-* VTK (Visualization Toolkit) 5.8.0 (previously was 5.2.1)
-	http://www.vtk.org/VTK/resources/software.html
-	https://sourceforge.net/projects/arsproject/files/VTK/

-DOCUMENTATION
