Robotics is an engaging and natural application area for concurrent and parallel models of control. To explore these ideas, we have developed environments and materials to support the programming of robots to do interesting tasks in a fundamentally concurrent manner. Our most recent work involves the development of RoboDeb (short for "Robotics/Debian"), a "virtual computer" pre-installed with the open-source Player API and Stage simulator to support classroom exploration of concurrency and robotic control using the occam-pi programming language.
