Community meeting: Multibeam sonar / Ignition Physics (Mar 2022)

Hi, community! :gazebo:

Next week we’re excited to have two speakers from Asia presenting at the community meeting! This means the meeting time will be a bit different from usual, but rest assured that it will be recorded in case you can’t make it.

Multibeam Forward Looking Sonar

Woensug Choi is part of the team developing the Gazebo-classic-based underwater simulator DAVE. This meeting, Woensug will go over the work they’ve done to implement Multibeam Forward Looking Sonars to aid in underwater manipulation. Here are some resources for you to check until the meeting:


Ignition Physics

Michael Grey (@grey) will tell us all about Ignition Physics, an abstract physics interface designed to support simulation and rapid development of robot applications. Because there’s not a single physics engine that’s universally best for all simulation contexts, Ignition Physics facilitates the support of different sets of features according to each physics engine’s capabilities. Thanks to Ignition Physics, Gazebo can be used with DART, Bullet, TPE, or any physics engine that you choose. Check out the resources below before the talk:
