Cyberbotics develops custom software solutions for mobile robotics, based on its proprietary Webots technology. We have been working on several industrial, educational and research projects. Our customers include well known universities and large companies. Get in touch with us if you would like to discuss of a possible project.

European research projects

Cyberbotics is interested in participating in European research projects that need to simulate mobile robots. We already took part in two IP projects, namely ICEA and RHEA. We have a special interest in developing simulation-based robotics benchmarks. Don't hesitate to get in touch with us if you are looking for a robot simulation partner for your European project proposal.


The INTRA indoor robot simulator was developed by Cyberbotics on behalf of the INTRA group (EDF, CEA, Areva) to train pilots of the EOLE and EROS remote controlled robots. These robots are designed to operate indoor in case of a nuclear accident. They are able to climb up and down stairs, pass over pipes, open doors, grasp objects, press buttons and rotate valve wheels. The robots have several onboard cameras equiped with lights whose point of view is displayed on control screens at the remote control station. The simulation was designed to be a replica of the real system and can be operated from the same control console as the real system. It permits an initial training of pilots without taking risks of damage on the real hardware.

The NAO for Webots simulation model was developed by Cyberbotics on behalf of Aldebaran robotics to model a NAO humanoid robot in Webots. The model was carefully calibrated against real NAO robots to ensure that simulated robot controllers could smoothly transfer to the real world. An interface with Aldebaran NAOqi Operating System was implemented to connect the simulated model to the Choregraphe graphical programming software as well as the C++ NAOqi API. The simulated NAO model simulates all the servo motors of the real robot, including the fingers ; it also simulates the two on-board cameras, the sonar, the LEDs, the motor position and force-feedback, the IMU (accelerometer and gyro), the touch sensors in the head and force sensors in the feet of the robot.

The RHEA Project aimed at the design, development, and testing of a new generation of automatic and robotic systems for effective weed management focused on agriculture and forestry. This project was devoted to change the traditional way of proceeding by putting together a fleet of small, safe, reconfigurable, heterogeneous and complementary robots. Cyberbotics contributed to design the simulation of the ground and aerial robots and the graphical user interface for the RHEA base station.

The ICEA Project is a four-year project, funded by IST Cognitive Systems Unit. The aim of the project was to develop robots integrating cognition, emotions and autonomy (self-maintenance), based on the architecture and physiology of the mammalian brain. Cyberbotics developed 3D mobile robot simulations based on the Webots technology. The simulated bio-inspired robots were equipped with simulated sensors (vision, whiskers and proprioception) and simulated actuators (active whiskers, wheels, head/eyes/rearing movements and grippers).

The Sony Aibo simulator is a simulation model of the Sony Aibo robot. It was developed with Cyberbotics' proprietary technology for Sony Digital Creatures Lab, to design and test behaviors for Aibo. A soccer game system has been implemented, allowing the Aibo to track a colored ball with its on-board color camera. Resulting controllers could be transfered to real Aibo robots.
