Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren, werte Kollegen, liebe Studis,

am kommenden Mittwoch, den 09.06.2010, hält Tobias Kotthäuser um 16:30 in Raum P 1.4.17 einen Vortrag mit dem Titel:

The Simulation Framework SIMORE - Concepts, Recent Extensions and Applications


Simulation has proven to be a helpful tool in developing and testing algorithms in the field of mobile robotics. Especially when limitations in hardware, specific environments or time have to be considered, virtual prototyping can be a beneficial extension compared to exclusively testing software in "real" environments. The GETLab deploys its own 3D simulation framework SIMORE to overcome the aforementioned limitations. SIMORE is based upon open source libraries, such as OpenSceneGraph for its rendering engine, and the Open Dynamics Engine for its physics simulation. It supports multiple types of virtual actuators and sensors which for instance include pan-tilt-units and robotic manipulators as well as laser range finders and virtual cameras. The exchange of control commands and synthesized data can be realized with interfaces such as Player or the Robot Operating System (ROS). In this presentation, we will present the key concepts of SIMORE, recent extensions as well as exemplary applications implemented within the last year.
