RealityGrid Computational Steering Library and Toolkit

New! Version 3.0.1 of the RealityGrid Steering Library and Toolkit is available to download under a liberal open source licence.

Please see our page on Google Code for the latest downloads

Previous versions are available from the local downloads page for now but may be removed in the (near) future.

Access to the source code repositories for RealityGrid is detailed here.

Please subscribe to the comp-steering list before downloading the software. We do not enforce this, but it helps us keep track of who is using our software, and helps you keep up to date with bug-fixes and new releases. This mailing list is also the first point of contact for obtaining support and general advice about installing and using the software. It is very, very low volume!

If you think you've found a problem with the steering software then please first check the documentation to ensure that the behaviour you're seeing is in fact a bug. (You might also find it useful to post your problem to the mailing list.) If you are convinced then please submit a report to our issue tracker.
