lobots is a free, open-source robots simulator, featuring 3D graphics using OpenGL and GLUT libraries. It provides a client/server model, supporting multiples robot clients remotely connected on a TCP/IP network.

On the server side, lobots-srv provides an intuitive interface to create the scenario where the simulation is taking place, using building bricks of different shapes, sizes and colors, providing a rich environment which is also editable while the simulation is taking place.

Creating the client algorithm is also easy and straightfoward, using the provided C++ class the user don't have to worry about the client/server handling, but just interact with the provided data structures to read the robot's sensor data and send commands.
