URBI is a programming language and a platform designed for robot control. The language provides tools for behavior-based robotics, with an emphasis on real-time control and reactivity. URBI features a C++ core, along with scripting support using a language derived from BASIC called urbiscript. The platform can be used to program robots of different types and brands by abstracting the specifics of the underlying hardware through its middleware capabilities. URBI has been utilized in academic research as well as in commercial applications for educational robots and professional service robots.
