RoboCup SPL Team Kouretes is pleased to announce the public release of our stand-alone, complete NAO 
kinematics software library, which is made available from our Github repository:

https://github.com/kouretes/NAOKinematics

The C++ NAOKinematics library covers Aldebaran Robotics NAO versions H21 and H25, offers the 
following functions

- forward kinematics
- inverse kinematics (analytical, closed-form solution)
- center-of-mass calculation

and can be integrated into any existing C++ software architecture.

Details about the Kouretes NAOKinematics library can be found in the following two documents:
