This works aims at connecting SOFA with the open-source platform for robotics ROS (Robot Operating System). Using a bi-directional communication, this plugin allows the usage of SOFA-based simulations in combination with ROS-enabled software frameworks.
In this video, a Universal Robot’s URSim is used offline and a simple 4-point trajectory is defined. This trajectory is visible on the left part of the video. On the right side, you can see the associated SOFA simulation using in input the information from the robot trajectory.
