Webots allows a user to model any mobile robot with accurate
simulation. User models included (Harmonic Arm 6M, e-puck, AIBO robot, humanoid robot,
Blimp flying robot, soccer robot, LEGO Mindstorms robot, Hemisson robot,
etc.) or create his/her own model by shaping a robot and setting sensors
- Models and
simulates any mobile robot, including wheeled, legged and flying
- Includes a
complete library of sensors and actuators.
- A number of
sensors can be plugged into your robot model and tuned individually
(range, noise, response, field of view, etc.). Similarly, a number
of actuators can be plugged into your robot model, and even be
simulation system used in Webots uses virtual time, making it
possible to run simulations much faster than it would take on a
real robot. Depending on the complexity of the setup and the power
of your computer, simulations can run up to 300 times faster than
on the real robot when using the fast simulation mode.
- Lets you program
the robots in C, C++ and Java, or from third party software through
controllers to real mobile robots, including e-puck, AIBO, LEGO
Mindstorms, Khepera, Koala, and Hemisson.
complex robotic devices including articulated mechanical parts
requires precise physics simulation. Webots relies on ODE (Open
Dynamics Engine) to perform accurate physics simulation wherever it
- The graphical
user interface of Webots allows you to easily interact with the
simulation while it is running.
- Creates AVI or
MPEG simulation movies for web and public presentations.
- Includes many
examples with controller source code and models of commercially
available when purchased with e-puck robot.
e-puck window controls both the simulated and real
of Koala mobile robot with two motors, wheels, and 16 infrared sensors.
