DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC) Simulator
Gazebo is the basis for the DRC Simulator, which is used by participants in the DRC program, especially the Virtual Robotics Challenge (VRC), a cloud-based simulation competition scheduled for June 2013. Building upon Gazebo, the DRC Simulator, or DRCSim, comprises additional worlds, models, and code that is specifically required to simulate the DRC domain.
The DRC Simulator is contained within the
drcsim package. Follow the installation instructions to install it.
- DRCSim user guide
- Because DRCSim builds upon Gazebo, new DRCSim users should start with the Gazebo tutorials.
- DRCSim-specific tutorials.
Releases and plans
- The DRC Robot will carry a MultiSense SL sensor head. Consult the datasheet. Software simulation of that sensor head is forthcoming.
