The fmi_adapter_examples package
This ROS package provides few examples for the use of the fmi_adapter package. It contains two FMU files DampedPendulum.fmu and TransportDelay.fmu (both created with the FMU SDK) and corresponding launch files. Furthermore, it includes a model of a damped pendulum in the Modelica language to create your own FMU.
Running the provided sample FMUs
roslaunch fmi_adapter_examples simple_damped_pendulum.launch to simulate a damped pendulum (share/DampedPendulum.fmu) with a length of 1m. The pendulum's angle is published at /fmi_adapter_node/a with the default rate of 100Hz. The step size of the FMU's solver is 1ms.
damped_pendulum_with_transport_delay.launch starts two nodes. The first one simulates share/DampedPendulum.fmu, where the length parameter is set to 25m by the launch file. The second node runs share/TransportDelay.fmu, where the delay parameter is set to 2.33s. The input subscription of the transport delay is remapped to the pendulum's angle topic and the delayed angle is published at /transport_delay/y.
Both launch files also open rqt_plot to visualize the angle(s).
Create and simulate your own DampedPendulum.fmu
In the following, we explain the process by the example of OpenModelica, which has been also used to create the model of the damped pendulum at share/DampedPendulum.mo.
- Download and install OpenModelica for Linux as described in https://openmodelica.org/download/download-linux.
OMEditand load the share/DampedPendulum.mo model file.
- Click on the DampedPendulum model in the project tree on the left.
- Navigate to Tools -> Options -> FMI and ensure that
- Then click FMI -> Export FMU.
- The path of the resulting FMU file is shown in the message browser at the bottom of the window, typically
Now, you are prepared for simulating the FMU using the fmi_adapter package.
Either use the generic launch file of the package
roslaunch fmi_adapter fmi_adapter_node.launch fmu_path:=/tmp/OpenModelica_[user]/OMEdit/DampedPendulum.fmuor invoke the package's node directly by
rosrun fmi_adapter node _fmu_path:=/tmp/OpenModelica_[user]/OMEdit/DampedPendulum.fmu
You may visualize the pendulum's angle over time by
Please see the README.md of the fmi_adapter package for how to load and run an FMU inside an application-specific ROS node or library.
Note on bug with mmc_mk_modelica_array in OpenModelica 1.12.0: If the fmi_adapter node crashes with the error message
undefined symbol: mmc_mk_modelica_array, please patch the files
according to https://github.com/OpenModelica/OMCompiler/pull/2397/files and export the FMU again. Details on this bug are given in https://trac.openmodelica.org/OpenModelica/ticket/4899.
