SimRobot is a program for simulation of sensor based robots in a 3D environment. It is being used for further research on autonomous robots. Some Features:

  • Simulation of robot kinematics
  • Hierarchically built scene definition via a simple definition language
  • Various sensors built in: camera, facette eye, distance measurement, light sensor, etc.
  • Objects defined as polyeders
  • Emitter abstractly defined; can be interpreted e.g. as light or sound
  • Camera images computed according to the raytracing or Z-buffer algorithms known from computer graphics
  • More....
