Sagan-1 Robot Simulator

I wrote the Sagan-1 Robot Simulator in the framework of the Greenlight@Brussels 2011 day, but in the meantime, I used it for multiple events like OSCON 2012, EU Open Day at the European Commission, Devoxx4Kids.

It’s used to program a robot using simple commands, convenient for kids around 10-14 years old, graphical simulate the outcome and send it (after background cross-compiling) into a real robot. The application is written in Java (1.6) Swing.

Beside of the pure simulation, it supports cross-compiling and downloading into Arexx RP6 and Lego NXT Mindstrom robots out of the box.
