Robot with tracks

I am currently working on a project where a robot with a track drive (like a tank) has to be simulated. Has anyone already had experience of how the track drive can be simulated in the best / most detailed way?

Hi - Sorry for the delay in the response. Let us know if you still having this issue/question with the latest Isaac Sim 2022.2.1 release.

The problem is still open. However, it is not clear to me how an elastic rubber track can be represented in Isaac Sim.

It would be very helpful if there is an example of this

@AlesBorovicka - Do you know if elastic rubber track representation is possible?

Hello, Have you tried the Physx Vehicle Module?

They have a Tank mode that you could use for differential drive.

Alternatively, you could model it as a multi-axle robot with revolute joints and cylindrical wheels. It would not have the belt but you can have the same behavior with the appropriate drive mode.
