Ishtar is a lightweight and versatile collection of software for remote data access and monitoring, which is typically useful during the development and experimentation with robots and other types of autonomous systems. Ishtar comprises a flexible communication layer that allows enumeration, inspection and modification of data in the remote system. The protocol is designed to be robust to the data loss and corruption that typically arises with small autonomous system, while remaining efficient in its bandwidth use. Emphasis is put on the flexibility to allow Ishtar to be used with arbitrary platforms and experimental paradigms. The software is designed to be cross-platform (compatible with Windows, Mac OS and Linux) and cross-architecture (it is compatible with both microcontroller- and embedded-PC-based remote systems). It is also compatible with arbitrary communication link (TCP/IP, serial, etc.) thanks to the Dashel low-level abstraction library.

e-mo-tion is a flexible graphical software that allows to monitor Ishtar-based remote systems, graph and log its data and display them using a completely customisable cockpit.
