I would like to dedicate this episode to people that test their code in simulation prior to go to the real robot. That is the way guys. If you don’t test first on the simulation, you can break the robot or harm somebody with your untested code. So the procedure is always, test on simulation until it works there. Then test on the real robot. I know, we all want to test directly on the robot because is cooler, but, we don’t neither like to do unit tests but we do them, right?!?!? So…
Today we are going to learn how we can use amazing Unity powered simulations with ROS controllers.
Want to learn from the best ROS Developers of the world?
Then you cannot miss the 4th ROS Developers Day 2021, a full day of ROS practice delivered by the best ROS programmers of the world.
The conference is completely practical. 12 hours full of ROS practice from the comfort of your home. Check it out here.
Now let me introduce you Sarah Gibson, Senior Engineering Manager, Robotics | Unity Technologies. She is going to talk with me about using Unity in robotics development, and specially in using ROS and Unity to build ROS based robot simulations.
