Robot programming languages are emerging from their experimental stage and entering an assessment phase. Their main features are illustrated and a parallel with ADA is proposed. The comparison is positive for ADA, in the sense that ADA provides most of the required capabilities. The ability of reasoning on object models and taking decisions will play an increasing role in the future. In this case the role of ADA would possibly change and its interest as robot programming language decrease.
