Dear Boost Python Developers,

We've been using boost.python for about a year now for a robotics
planning and simulation environment called OpenRAVE (developed by
Rosen Diankov):

We are very pleased with boost python and it has opened up many new
doors for development. I saw that Boost.Python has a projects page, so
if it openrave is deemed worth of getting mentioned on it, a possible
project description would be:

"OpenRAVE is an open-source, cross-platform, plugin-based robot
planning environment for autonomous robotics. Includes many services
like collision detection, physics, (inverse) kinematics, sensors,
robot controls, complex motion planners, grasping simulation,
manipulation planning, and a powerful python scripting environment
based on boost.python. Boost.Python allows OpenRAVE to export all its
complex C++ functionality into a scripting environment where
researchers can easily test new algorithms and dynamically control the
flow of execution."

thank you,
