ROSCon 2017: Vehicle and city simulation with Gazebo and ROS — Ian Chen and and Carlos Agüero (Open Robotics)

Looking foward to ROSCon 2018 we’re highlighting presentations from last year. The ROSCon 2018 registration is currently open.

Ian and Carlos started the second afternoon session talking about simulating vehicles and cities.

Abstract

Autonomous driving is becoming a popular area of robotics, attracting interests from the research community and industry alike. Open Robotics have received increasing demands for resources to help build vehicle simulations in Gazebo. In this presentation, we will describe our recent efforts on vehicle and city simulation. We have produced a collection of components, including 3D vehicle models, materials and plugins, a Road Network Description File library, and a procedural city generation tool. We will showcase a demo with ROS interface and rviz visualization, and describe how users can create their own vehicle simulations with these components
