Adding khepera IV in vrep

Postby Msalmanch » 07 Feb 2017, 08:49

Hello,

Is there any way to add khepera IV robot with all its specs e.g camera etc in vrep, also including all the API's and libraries. If yes, then how can I do it.

Thanks.

Hello,

yes, you can do this. You will have to import the CAD data, adjust the imported shapes (simplify them, group them, etc.), prepare pure cylinders for the wheels, simplified convex shapes for the respondable parts of the robot, add joints/motors, sensors, etc. Make sure you carefully read this page.
Then you will have different possibilities to interact with your robot: from a child script, from a remote API client, from a ROS node, etc.
If you need to have higher-level API functions for your robot, then you can create a plugin that exports those functions. Then, calling those functions from a child script will indirectly execute your plugin code.

Cheers
