Simulate Erle-Copter in Gazebo


At Erle Robotics we believe that Gazebo is the key tool for the future development of robotics.In order to help our community and users to simplify the process of algorithm with flying robots We’ve decided to put together a series about how to simulate Erle-Copter with ROS/Gazebo. Here are the first four episodes:


Episode 1: How to launch the simulator once the environment is set up

Episode 2: Testing ArduCopter flight modes

Episode 3: Automatic take off and land using ROS

Episode 4: Overriding the radio control using MAVROS


In addition to this we have created documentation where we explain how to go through the whole process.  We also recommend having a look to the series of videos that explain how to get started with the Robot Operating System (ROS).

Many thanks to Alex Buyval for creating the initial Arducopter simulation on Gazebo. Also many thanks to Aurélien Roy and Maxime Lafleur to continue his work.
