Depending on what you're trying to do, almost any modern language will work; they differ mostly in what machines they've available on, how well-standardized they are, and what they make particularly easy or difficult. For hardware-level coding, I'd suggest learning C if you aren't willing to drop all the way down to the assembler level.

Most home-build robots have very little on-board computing power.

Put "robot" in the search box at the top-right of the page, and you will see that most only use a chip like an arduino or a picAXE, and several have no computing power at all, such as the bristlebot or the beetle bot (which senses and reacts to its surroundings with just a couple of switches).

Or are you planning to simulate a robot as software?
