Hi, I’m doing a simulation include lots of collision detection. But I found that there were sometimes unstable motion when collision detected (the object was jittering). How can I improve the performance of simulation?
Without looking at your specific use case, it could be many factors.
Are you using the correct gravity/unit (cm vs m)?
Also try setting your physics scene’s BroadPhase to MBP instead.
Do they fall and sleep fine but only jitter when they are about to collide? Tune/Reduce the collision shapes’ collision offset.
You can also connect to PVD running on Windows. The PVD connection is under Window\Physics\Settings\PVD
Hi @HaiLocLu ,
Thanks for your reply!
My scenario is that I control a manipulator (UR10) to do a peg-in-hole task.
- I’m using the correct gravity.
- Yes, they fall and sleep fine but only jitter when they are colliding. My collision offset setting is
physxCollision: contactOffset: 0.001
Is there any other parameters about collision that I can tune?
3. I’m using Issac Sim on Ubuntu. But PVD doesn’t support Ubuntu
Right, PVD will need to run on Windows and you specify its IP address in the PVD connection tab from your Ubuntu.
But try reducing the contactOffset for both the peg and the hole. Also reduce peg’s Property Window/Rigid Body/Advanced/Max Depenetration Velocity and Contact Impulse. Increase the Solver Iteration counts to something big like 32, etc. The idea is to reducing the contacts pushing each other out.
Where can I modify the Solver Iteration counts?
And I try to using PVD connect on ubuntu. But it keeps showing
Reconnect PVD. How can I connect to PVD
Did you specify your Windows IP from the Isaac Sim running on Linux? In this case, i think trying to tune those physics parameters might help.
After tuning these parameters, it improves a lot. Thanks!
