Questions about simulation step setting

Post by ga89bak » 29 Oct 2018, 15:37

Hi all,

I'm now making a self balancing robot in vrep. The controller part is programmed by language C. My robot works well if I slow down the simulation step to 5ms(with default value of 50ms). However when I set the default value to 5ms, my robot run in a bad behavior.
I'm confused by the simulation step setting in V-Rep. What is the relationship between vrep simulation steps and the sampling frequency of C controller? Is this means that my controller is not good enough if the robot cannot run with default simulation steps?

Thank you

for what you want to achieve, it is very important to run your C client synchronously with V-REP (i.e. run the remote API in synchronous mode).
