Error in Epuck orientation

Hi all,

I am working in a simulation project with Epuck with which I use a self made odometry algorithm in a remote Matlab script.

In V-rep simulator , when I set the absolute Z orientation (gamma orientation) of Epuck to zero, Epuck seems to be correctly oriented.

But when I use the Remote API Function in Matlab to obtain the Epuck's absolute orientation:

Code: Select all

simxGetObjectOrientation(...)


I always obtain a shift in the Z orientation of about 10 deg which accumulates during the simulation.

I have checked the Epuck object properties but everything seems to be correct.

can this be an error in the robot's model itself?

Thanks in advance,

Farid
