Using the iRobot® Create® 3 Simulator
We provide a ROS 2 Gazebo simulation stack for the iRobot® Create® 3 Educational Robot. Have a look at its Github repository. The Github repository contains instructions for how to building and running the simulator on your laptop.
This application completely simulates a Create® 3 robot, thus exposing to the user all the same ROS 2 APIs as the real robot.
You will be able to use the iRobot® Create® 3 Simulator to quickly develop your new applications and eventually run them on the real robot without having to change anything.
