Re: Khepera K3 model, how is the UI done?

Just for quick testing if there an easy way to write lua script, much like that used on the bubblerob tutorial which, like the khepera's UI, lets the UI only appear when the robot is selected. I only need basic sliders like the bubbleRob uses and I can get those working fine. The one change I want t...

You could upload to a dropbox, google drive or other such cloud storage platform, then put a link to it here.

Multiple V-REP instances running on same computer conflict, cannot have lua scripts write to files from latter instance

I've tried running separate V-REP sims in parallel on the same (linux) computer. I find that even if two separate copies folders are used for V-REP_PRO_EDU_V3_X_Linux for each sim to run in, hence two separate terminal windows launched, one in each folder, then weird behaviours occur between the two...

Khepera K3 model, how is the UI done?

The default khepera K3 model includes in v-rep 3.5 includes a UI which when thr robot is clicked upo9n will appear but if the robot, during the simulation run, doesn't get selected stays invisible. How is this done? I want to do something similar for models of my own but all I can see within the khe...

Re: Turn off update checker, interferes with automated sim runs

Thanks fferri, that looks like an appropriate solution for my trouble. I've edited doNotShowUpdateCheckMessage in the usrset.txt file from false to true but can't find "suppressStartupDialogs = false" anywhere so as to change it to being true, should I just add that line in, set to true, at the bott...

Turn off update checker, interferes with automated sim runs

I need to turn off the automatic update checker as it is causing havoc with my attempts to run sims over nights and weekends. After setting a series of simulations running using (on a linux terminal) for i in {1..20}; do ../vrep.sh -g70.5 '/home/user/Downloads/V-REP_PRO_EDU_V3_5_0_Linux/scenes/filen...

Re: V-REP from command line, press the "hare" button

Thanks, that sim.setInt32Parameter(sim.intparam_speedmodifier,x) tip is exactly what I needed.

Re: V-REP from command line, press the "hare" button

The floatparam option isn't much help to me. I'm not looking to decrease the number of simulation ticks per second of sim time, I just want to do what the "hare" button does and only render a frame on a smaller fraction of those ticks.

V-REP from command line, press the "hare" button

On linux I can run V-REP from the command line using things like ../vrep.sh -g10 '/home/full/file/path/file.ttt' -s10000 -q to launch a sim which will run until 10 seconds of sim time has elapsed which quits V-REP when the sim ends, with a parameter of 10 fed in as first argument. But once running I...

Re: How to enhance the speed of simulation

Simulation itself can be made faster by using the simplified shapes to build up your physics engine enabled structures, avoiding meshes where possible and especially avoiding concave objects. You can use compounds of simple shapes to form your parts. If you disable any un-necessary proximity sensor ...
