MissionLab-Carmen Motivations

The official version of MissionLab stopped updating seven years ago, it is not compatible with present Linux distros and it can not compete in the number of available algorithms with other environments more used nowadays like ROS or OROCOS.

In this project we try to solve those problems. We have updated MissionLab, correcting bugs and replacing the most problematic and outdated components (Cthreads and IPT) with others more updated and supported (pthreads and IPC).

The integration with Carmen increases the number of available drivers and it enhances the localization and navigation capabilities and the management of maps.
