a software package for controlling autonomous vehicles.

The OpenVulture project is a free and open source software package for controlling autonomous vehicles brought to you by the fantabulous 757 Labs team. The primary purpose of this project is to provide a simple, free and nearly-dependency-free application (Vulture) and library (libvulture) to facilitate the software needs of an autonomous platform. Free, in the former case, refers to both freedom and cost. Such platforms (e.g. UAV, automated R/C car, etc) can be constructed cheaply and employ aspects of the OpenVulture software to act as the "brain" of the platform, steering it to waypoints and directing the platform in following pre-planed patterns/paths.
