Evolution Robotics, ER1 Robot, and ERSP Resource Page

These are some links to websites, programs, and other resources that relate to Evolution Robotics, the ER1 Robot, and ERSP.  They have been gathered by me and many other members on the SoR forums.  Please note that many of these links are quite old; some of the sites are abandoned altogether, so finding support for some of this stuff may be difficult.  However, these links are invaluable for anyone who has, or is curious about, Evolution Robotics, the ER-1 robot, or ERSP.

 

This page is constantly expanding and is never fully "complete".  If you have something useful that should be added to this page, feel free to discuss it on the "Evolution Robotics, ER1 Robot, and ERSP Thread" on the SoR forums, or PM me.
