Abstract

Currently, with the growth of powerful computers empowering fast computations, dynamics simulation in robotics is no longer expected to be employed solely as an offline computational tool. When using a teleoperation control system, understanding the current position and orientation of the robot is difficult for the controller. In this paper, we explore a real-time simulation system that can be used to provide the current position and orientation of the robot based on the robot operating system (ROS). The simulation software called virtual robotics experimentation platform (V-REP) receives current orientation information from an inertial measurement unit sensor and current position from the ROS package, which allows the V-REP simulation to display the position and orientation of the robot in real time.
