Community meeting: Subterranean Challenge (May 2022)

Community meeting: Subterranean Challenge (May 2022)

Hi, community! :gazebo:

This month’s community meeting will feature a large competition ran using the latest generation of Gazebo, the Subterranean Challenge

Subterranean Challenge

Robotic competitions have a long history of spurring innovation and attracting people with varied backgrounds and interests. Late this past year DARPA’s most recent challenge, the Subterranean Challenge (SubT), wrapped up.

Open Robotics was fortunate enough to be the simulation provider for the virtual track of SubT. During this meeting Nate Koenig (@nate) will present the work done to make the SubT virtual competition a reality and highlight some interesting results.

Hi, that’s great!

Will the meeting be recorded?

Is it possible to cover somehow the topic of how they create the world? If it is from real data, how it is transformed into the gazebo world? How large the world can be?

Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll make sure to cover world creation.

Anyone else is more than welcome to chime in with other topics they would like me to cover.
