Hello everyone, my name is Mohamed. I participated in Google Summer of Code 2020 with OSRF.
We developed a group of introductory tutorials for Ignition. The tutorials aim to help beginner users get comfortable starting to use Ignition. We also made videos to accompany these tutorials.
The tutorials are the following:
Build your own robot
Build a two wheeled robot using SDF 1.7
Moving the robot
This tutorial explains how to move the robot we built in the previous tutorial using the keyboard arrows. We used the Diff Drive plugin, the Triggered Publisher plugin and KeyPublisher plugin.
This tutorial explains how to build our world using SDF, and how to add models to it.
This tutorial explains how to add sensors to our robot and to other models in our world. We introduced three different sensors: an IMU sensor, a Contact sensor and a Lidar sensor.
ROS 2 Integration
This tutorial explains how to Integrate ROS 2 with Ignition using ros_bridge
This tutorial explains how to add actors to our world and how to create a scripted animation
We hope these tutorials will help new users in the community get comfortable with Ignition and encourage more people to learn about robotics simulation!
