Create-ing a Robot Simulator
Hoxsey, Alena (formerly known as Hoxsey, Alec)
Existing Robot Simulators, such as Gazebo, Webots, and Microsoft Robotics Studio, have the advantage that they may be used with a wide range of robots. On the other hand, it may be that none of these are the best option for any particular robot. This paper will describe a· simulator developed specifically for the iRobot Create. Focusing on one platform simplifies the development process. It also makes it possible to tailor the simulator's features specifically to the robot and the research methods that should be supported.
