Steffi Paepcke and Louise Poubel (OSRF): What's new in Gazebo? Upgrading your simulation user experience!

With ROSCon 2017 preparations getting started we wanted to feature some of the presentations from last year. The call for proposals is currently open as well as registration. To start with here's Steffi and Louise's talk about Gazebo, presented ambitiously as a live demo in Gazebo.


Gazebo is one of the most used simulators in the ROS community. It has been under heavy development for the past few years and its most recent version, Gazebo 7, comes with myriad new tools and features for new and experienced users alike. Recently, Gazebo development has emphasized user-centered design and improved usability. Updates include not only improved GUI tools and documentation for new folks, but also tools that streamline the workflow for experienced users. We explore new features including: Model Editor, Building Editor, apply force tool, logging and playback, model alignment and snap tools, camera angle controls, plotting, introspection and debugging aids, and more.
