Gobot, the open source robotics and Internet of Things (IoT) framework, has reached a major milestone with the recent release of version 1.0. Now supporting over 24 different hardware and software platforms, the framework can also connect using Machine to Machine (M2M) communication standards such as MQTT.
“We created Gobot to make IoT development easy, and at the same time provide industrial strength tools,” says Ron Evans, the creator of Gobot and ‘Ringleader’ of The Hybrid Group, the software consultancy that has sponsored the open source project. “By using the Go programming language we get powerful performance and portability that is unmatched.”
“Modern development tools like Gobot can unlock the power in next-generation devices, and can help developers take advantage of new opportunities being opened in IoT, robotics, and drones,” says Rex St. John, Ecosystem Manager at Intel New Technology Group. “Gobot can use all of the cores on these new multi-core devices right out of the box.”
“Being an innovator on the frontier means we can choose the best technology stack and design for forward-thinking solutions. And we love Gobot!” says Jinger Zeng, CEO of Dronesmith, a drone technology company currently in the TechStars IoT accelerator. “Gobot strikes the perfect balance between simplicity and performance.”
“As real-world robotics and IoT solutions begin to take off, developers need powerful yet simple tools like Gobot,” says Brian Flannery, Ecosystem Manager at Apcera, creators of the open source messaging software NATS. “We’ve seen how quickly and easily developers can use Gobot to get their hardware connected to a simple and secure messaging system like NATS.”
