iRobot® Create® 3 Simulator

Testing License

This is a ROS 2 simulation stack for the iRobot® Create® 3 robot. Both Ignition Gazebo and Classic Gazebo are supported.

Have a look at the Create® 3 documentation for more details on the ROS 2 interfaces exposed by the robot.

Prerequisites

Required dependencies:

  1. ROS 2 galactic
  2. ROS 2 dev tools:

Besides the aforementioned dependencies you will also need at least one among Ignition Gazebo and Classic Gazebo

Classic Gazebo

Install Gazebo 11

Ignition Edifice

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install wget
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://packages.osrfoundation.org/gazebo/ubuntu-stable `lsb_release -cs` main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/gazebo-stable.list'
wget http://packages.osrfoundation.org/gazebo.key -O - | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install ignition-edifice

Build

  • Create a workspace if you don't already have one:
mkdir -p ~/create3_ws/src

  • Clone this repository into the src directory from above.

  • Navigate to the workspace and install ROS 2 dependencies with:

cd ~/create3_ws
sudo apt-get update
rosdep install --from-path src -yi

  • Build the workspace with:
export IGNITION_VERSION=edifice
colcon build --symlink-install
source install/local_setup.bash

Run

Classic Gazebo

Empty world

Create® 3 can be spawned in an empty world in Gazebo and monitored through RViz with

ros2 launch irobot_create_gazebo_bringup create3_gazebo.launch.py

AWS house

Create® 3 can be spawned in the AWS small house in Gazebo and monitored through RViz. This requires that the package aws_robomaker_small_house_world is available.

If you need it, you can build aws_robomaker_small_house_world in your ROS 2 workspace by doing:

vcs import ~/create3_ws/src/ < ~/create3_ws/src/create3_sim/irobot_create_gazebo/demo.repos
cd ~/create3_ws
colcon build --symlink-install
source install/local_setup.bash

Then you can run:

ros2 launch irobot_create_gazebo_bringup create3_gazebo_aws_small.launch.py

Ignition Gazebo

Create® 3 can be spawned in a demo world in Ignition and monitored through RViz with

ros2 launch irobot_create_ignition_bringup create3_ignition.launch.py

Package layout

This repository contains packages for both the Classic and Ignition Gazebo simulators:

  • irobot_create_common Packages common to both Classic and Ignition

    • irobot_create_common_bringup Launch files and configurations
    • irobot_create_control Launch control nodes
    • irobot_create_description URDF and mesh files describing the robot

iRobot® Create® 3 Simulator

Testing License

This is a ROS 2 simulation stack for the iRobot® Create® 3 robot.

Prerequisites

Required dependencies:

  1. Ros 2 foxy: it's recommended to install the desktop version of the distribution of your choosing, this will also install RViz 2. Bare in mind that if another version is installed, some dependencies may be missing.
  2. Gazebo
  3. RViz2: this is included as part of the rosdep dependecies.
  4. ROS 2 dev tools:

Optional dependencies:

  1. xterm: Used to teleoperate the robot with the keyboard.

Build

  • Create a workspace if you don't already have one:
mkdir -p ~/create3_ws/src

  • Clone this repository into the src directory from above.

  • Use vcs to clone additional dependencies into the workspace:

vcs import ~/create3_ws/src/ < ~/create3_ws/src/create3_sim/dependencies.repos

  • Navigate to the workspace and install ROS 2 dependencies with:
cd ~/create3_ws
rosdep install --from-path src -yi

  • Build the workspace with:
colcon build --symlink-install
source install/local_setup.bash

Examples

Empty world

Create® 3 can be spawned in an empty world in Gazebo and monitored through RViz with

ros2 launch irobot_create_gazebo create3.launch.py

AWS house

Create® 3 can be spawned in the AWS small house in Gazebo and monitored through RViz. This requires that the package aws_robomaker_small_house_world is available.

If you need it, you can build aws_robomaker_small_house_world in your ROS 2 workspace by doing:

vcs import ~/create3_ws/src/ < ~/create3_ws/src/create3_sim/demo.repos
cd ~/create3_ws
colcon build --symlink-install
source install/local_setup.bash

Then you can run:
