We would like to create a training/simulation environment for a tracked robot.
Putting wheels under the model is not a satisfying option as the robot needs to overcome various obstacles including stairs.
Is there a way in ISAAC Sim to facilitate such a feature?
Hi @christian.rammelmueller - Can you elaborate little further to understand your use case?
basically we have a tracked robot which should be used in rescue robotics.
The robot has to overcome various obstacles in real life including debris from collapsed buildings, staircases, …
When I use virtual wheels for moving the robot in the simulation, it can not overcome such obstacles.
To Speed up development with SLAM/Navigation we would like to use Isaac Sim as a virtual training environment, but we want to be as close to reality as possible. Therefore we would need a true tracked robot simulation.
In principle a pendant to this Gazebo feature: Ignition Gazebo: TrackedVehicle Class Reference
