This page describes how to get started with the SmartSoft World. SmartSoft is an umbrella term for structures, tooling, infrastructure, and software components to build robotics systems. How you get started and what to install depends on your particular role and needs.
I am just looking around
To orientate yourself and get an overview, have a look at the following resources:
The easiest way: Virtual Machine Download
Get Started with the SmartSoft World and the SmartMDSD Toolchain in a virtual machine and be guided through the first steps. Everything is ready-to-go for the beginner (software components, systems, simulators, and more) and it even comes with everything for the advanced user (develop your own components, compose components to applications, deploy and run them):
Full Fledged Users: I want it all
You can also use the virtual machine. However, in order to access the full power of your computer during your development and when running simulations, we strongly recommend to install the SmartMDSD Toolchain directly onto your computer without the indirection of a virtual machine.
