MIROsim is a 3D simulator of the MIRO robot that includes models of most of the platforms sensors and all of the degrees of freedom (ways of moving). Based on the open source Gazebo physics engine, MIROsim allows developers to create and test algorithms in simulation before porting them to the robot to try them out in the physical world.
MIROsim is available for download as part of the MIRO Developer Kit and can be obtained in advance of delivery of your robot, or for use on its own without a robot.
MIROsim is suitable for teaching in the classroom, allowing students to pilot their work in the model before testing on the MIRO platform. Students might work in parallel on the simulator and take turns to test their control software on a physical robot.
