Community Meeting: “From Gazebo simulation to wind turbine inspections powered by Aerostack2”

Here’s our first meeting of the year! This time we’ll have a presentation about the transition from a simulated project to a real-world application using Gazebo and Aerostack2.

This talk showcases a successful case of transitioning from simulation to real-world applications, specifically addressing industrial scenarios where on-site experiments can be expensive and dangerous. We focus on windmill inspection utilizing drones.​

The presentation outlines the key components of the Aerostack2-Gazebo package, explaining how we bring all our simulations up. Following, we delve into the steps of the transition to real world experiments. Additionally, we briefly touch on Aerostack2 and how we approach the inspection process, ultimately highlighting the practicality and cost-effectiveness of our approach.

Here’s the agenda:

  1. Latest Gazebo news - Addisu Tadesse (Intrinsic)
  2. “From Gazebo simulation to wind turbine inspections powered by Aerostack2”.
    Rafael Pérez Seguí and Pedro Arias Pérez.
    (Computer Vision and Aerial Robotics Group, Centre for Automation and Robotics (C.A.R.), Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM-CSIC))
  3. Lightning talk: Addon for Blender that creates collision geometry and SDF files - Cole Biesemeyer (Intrinsic)

We opened a slot for short (3 minutes) lighting presentations. If you’re interested in talking about your Gazebo project contact me (caguero AT openrobotics DOT org) and I’ll book your slot.
