You might want to have a look to Rosen (RObotic Simulation Erlang eNgine):


Reading from the doc:
"is a software library, written in Erlang, which simulates 3D
environments and in particular autonomous mobile robots, each with its
behaviour and interaction capabilities."

It's probably not exactly what you need, but some of the libraries might
deserve a look...
