Gazebo to V-rep

Post by blevesque »

Hi all,
I have a project working with Gazebo (urdf, rosnodes, etc). I want to try it with V-Rep, is there an easy way to import my robot ? I have an urdf.xacro file I can convert in urdf but what about my controllers for example ?
Thanks

Hello,

the controllers cannot be directly taken over. If they are ROS-based, then you can still use them if you pack them into individual ROS nodes. On the V-REP side however, you will have to create the glue between the ROS messages (i.e. write ROS subscribers and publishers in scripts).

Cheers
