Chapter 1. Introduction

Liburbi-matlab is a library designed to encapsulate an URBI connection for use in MATLAB. It handles the TCP connection with the URBI server and the processing of messages coming from the server. It is compatible with Urbi servers version 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 RC. Examples in the documentation are for version 2.0.

The library consists of a few functions to manage a connection, send and receive messages and create callback functions that are called after particular messages are received. A generated html documentation describing all the functions is available in the doc/autogen/ folder provided in the liburbi-matlab archive. A few examples are also provided in the examples/ folder.

We expect the reader to be a bit familiar with the URBI syntax. Please refer to the GOSTAI website and the Urbi tutorials.
