ROS + Gazebo Sim

This package contains things that make it convenient to integrate ROS with Gazebo, such as:

  • Launch files
  • ROS-enabled executables

Run Gazebo Sim

There's a convenient launch file, try for example:

ros2 launch ros_gz_sim gz_args:="shapes.sdf"

Spawn entities

The create executable can be used to spawn SDF or URDF entities from:

  • A file on disk or from Gazebo Fuel
  • A ROS parameter

For example, start Gazebo Sim:

ros2 launch ros_gz_sim

then spawn a model:

ros2 run ros_gz_sim create -world default -file ''

See more options with:

ros2 run ros_gz_sim create --helpshort
