You can simulate robots using different versions of Gazebo, starting from version 1.9 up to version 6.0. All of them are available with ROS support (Hydro, Indigo, Jade).
Simulate with the most modern version of Webots simulator, Webots 8.3, and use its large pool of existing simulations and robots of-the-shelf.
The simulator that was used for the Darpa Robotics Challenge ready to be used. If you want to simulate robots as complex as Atlas with just one launch file, this is your simulator

The Construct will present a live tutorial at IROS 2016:
Teaching Robotics With Cloud Simulations
This tutorial is about showing how to develop a teaching class of robotics that allows the students practice each one with a robot, and allow the teacher to concentrate on teaching and the student on learning robotics, instead of solving configuration/installation errors.
The 2016 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2016) will be held in Daejeon, Korea, October 9-14, 2016. The venue for IROS 2016 is the Daejeon Convention Center (DCC), close by “Daedeok Innopolis”. The program will integrate workshops and tutorials, plenaries, mini-plenaries, special sessions, exhibitions, robot demonstrations, an industrial forum and social activities for attendees and guests.
Over 500 international startups and 300 investors will meet at the most awaited startup event in CEE, Pioneers Festival, which is celebrating its 5th anniversary this year.
Pioneers.io is an international relationship builder in the tech and startup scene offering events, consulting, and investment.
Robot startup competitions provide excellent visibility to teams, access to investment, and inspire the next generation of students to start a company.
“Startup competitions are a good source for contacts, press, and sometimes money”, says Ricardo Téllez, CTO and Co-Founder of The Construct Sim, and winner of this year’s Entrepreneurship Award at the European Robotics Forum.
“Startup competitions are excellent practice grounds for startups. They push startups to be fact-based about their viability, express with clarity the ideas behind the business, and defend the startup position in front of a panel of experts. This provides excellent feedback for the startups that they can learn from. It’s not about winning, but really about gaining the experience that will be necessary when the time comes to present your startup to investors or sell your product to the world.”
The Construct also won an award at the International Robot Launch competition in 2015, as did ArtiMinds, German maker of semi-automatic control interfaces for complex industrial tasks. Another winner at the European Robotics Forum was Robird, a startup working on bird control, from the Netherlands.
Last saturday 7 of May The Construct team attended the Uwakeup2016 conference that took place in Mobile World Centre. It's an annual summit where business, science and industry converges.
The Construct Team shared their experiences with great other entrepreneurs and got a lot of valuable entrepreneurship experience.
7th International Conference on Robotics in Education
The Construct presents at The 7th International Conference on Robotics in Education (RiE), which is aimed at the presentation and discussion of the latest results and methods in the fields of research and development in Educational Robotics.
>The Construct won first prize in the EU Robotics Entrepreneurship Award 2016
The artificial intelligence is denominated in A.I., frequently appears in science fiction movies and novels. With the constant development of modern science and the latest technology of Cloud computing, Big data and pattern recognition, A.I. is going to gradually being integrated into our daily lives.
AI: The next "Hot spot" in the Technology Industry
With the trend of A.I., have emerged a number of startups. Recently some excellent startups won the Prize awarded by the European Robotics Forum2016.
The Entrepreneurship Award is granted to small innovative companies or start-ups, three robotics companies won the award. The first prize was the Spanish startup The Construct, a company dedicated to the creation of amazing robot simulations in the cloud from anywhere at anytime.
Except The Construct the other winners of the competition of this year were:
First Prize of the Entrepreneurship Award: Ricardo Tellez, The Construct - Robot simulaciones con un navegador web
Second Prize of the Entrepreneurship Award: Alexander Enoch, Robotical - A low cost walking robot that’s more than a toy
Third Prize of the Entrepreneurship Award: Riccardo Tornese, Tactile Robots – Designed to serve humans
The Construct won two awards at the international contest of robotics companies Robot Launch 2015: the Siemen's Industrial Award and the Reader's Pick.
After arriving to the finals at Sillicon Valley, where only 10 companies out of more than 100 arrived, The Construct won two awards that provided founding, contacts and an excellent partnership collaboration with Siemens. At present, The Construct and Siemens are building on that partnership to provide users with the most advanced robot simulation software from a single place in the cloud.
