Click here to download the software. The latest release is carmen.0.4.6.ii, updated 14 January, 2004.
The chief changes from Carmen 0.4.61 to 0.4.6.ii are:
- Added support for multiple robots
The chief changes from Carmen 0.4.6 to 0.4.6.i are:
- IPC upgraded to 3.7.6
- serious navigator memory leak fixed
- navigator CPU usage bug fixed
- command line argument bugs fixed in param_server, install_params
- the navigator window can be arbitrarily resized now
- all interface libraries now define the IPC messages each interface function
uses, the first time the function is called. this way, if modules come up in
different orders, you don't get a stream of IPC error messages any more.
The chief changes from Carmen 0.4.5 to 0.4.6 are:

- All quantities are reported in world coordinates. Nothing,
including the particle message, is reported in anything other than world
- The guts of localize have a library interface, called
- Localize now emits a weighted sample mean in response to every laser
reading. By incorporating the weights given the current observation,
(whether or not it is actually incorporated), the resulting mean scans
are SUBSTANTIALLY more accurate than before.
- Global localization is potentially faster and more accurate.
- There is a new option called use_scanmatching, which uses
gradient descent to fine-tune the output of localize.
- Localizegraph is no more. navigator_panel does everything you might
