Re: Workspace visualization

Hello, you are right, we forget to remove that deprecated function. And yes, you can use instead sim.createPointCloud and sim.insertPointsIntoPointCloud , or simply use drawing objects (i.e. sim.addDrawingObject and sim.addDrawingObjectItem ). Drawing objects are automatically used instead of point ...

Re: mecanum wheel

Hello, mecanum (or swedish or omnirirectional) wheels can be simulated in various ways via two main methods: you can design your wheel to contain several free-rolling joints , that each hold a roller. The roller needs to be very carefully dimensioned/designed, since it needs to be convex , and have ...

Re: Update scene examples with new functions

Hello Jovan, thanks for the suggestion. What version of CoppeliaSim are you using? Since coppeliaSim V4.2.0, all distributed scenes and models are using up-to-date API functions. It is true that this was not always the case in the past. As to the possibility to update the sample code listed in this ...

On-the-Fly Robot creation

The video shows an object handling task where robots are spawned on-the-fly. Any model can be loaded, duplicated, configured or destroyed while simulation is running.

Re: e-Puck Robot won't stop in front of obstacle

Just change the inertia via the GUI. That's the easiest, since you only need to do that once.

Re: MATLAB messing api file called sim.m

Well, you stay very vague with your description. From Matlab you can basically do the same things as from Python, using the remote API . The remote API (external, asynchronous) in itself does not have as many API functions as the regular API (internal, synchronous/asynchronous), but you can always f...

Re: e-Puck Robot won't stop in front of obstacle

Hello, my best guess is that this is directly linked with the physics engine. Try to switch to another engine, or try to select a more precise dynamics configuration mode . But the best is probably to slightly increase the mass and inertias of the wheels/body, following the dynamics design considera...

Re: MATLAB messing api file called sim.m

Matlab works differrently. It works with a prototype file (remoteApiProto.m) which describes the available functions in the remote API library, and some wrappers in remApi.m.
