Robot simulator widely used by educators.

Overview

Webots is a professional robot simulator widely used in academic and education. The Webots project started in 1996, initially developed by Dr. Olivier Michel at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland. Webots uses the ODE (Open Dynamics Engine) for detecting of collisions and for simulating the rigid body dynamics. The ODE library allows to accurately simulate the physical properties of objects, such as velocity, inertia, friction, etc.

A large collection of robot models comes in the software distribution, these models can be modified whenever needed. In addition it is also possible to build new models from scratch. When designing a robot model, the user specifies both the graphical and the physical properties of the objects. The graphical properties are: the shape, the dimensions, the position and orientation, the colors, the texture, etc. of the object. The physical properties are: the mass, the friction factor, the spring and damping constants, etc. Many more features. Pricing is for Webots Education version ; also available are Webot Pro ($4320.00), and Webots Pro Academic ($2880.00) - prices converted from Swiss Francs (CHF) at time of writing.

What's new in Webots

Version 2019a revision 1:
Enhancements:
  • Added a StripBuilding PROTO
  • Improved the SUMO exporter to support more cases
  • Improved rendering speed on Retina displays
  • Added a controller emulating the e-puck2 Wi-Fi protocol and a simple LabVIEW VI communicating with it
  • Added a safe mode
Bug fixes:
  • Possible communication hangs with a Wi-Fi remote controlled e-puck2 robot
  • The LEDs of the e-puck robot which were turned on wrongly when the 'led0' LED was turned on
  • Crash with the Python API when getting a Camera, Lidar or RangeFinder image at first step (thanks to Farinaz)
  • Crash when exporting some worlds to VRML97
  • Crash at startup when using a low-end GPU
  • OpenStreetMap importer not working when launched from another directory because of missing configuration file
  • TextureTransform field changes applied only at revert
  • Crash while recording a movie with some low-end GPU

Wow, they have some seriously Ivy-League prices. When they carry a $900 two wheel PIC bot that's equivalent to a $100 Parallax bot, I start questioning whether this $300 program is worth it. I'll stick with Parallax and Arduino, thanks.
