Simulation of camera

Postby Aakriti » Tue Dec 22, 2020 9:08 am

Hi,

I had a few questions -
1. What is the a sensor to simulate camera (depth and/or RGB) ?
2. The current proximilty sensor gives 16 output values. Most lidars give 512 output values. Is there a way to increase the resolution of the proximilty sensor in argos ?
3. Can I import enviroments/layout in argos? Currently I make the complete environment in .argos file by using boxes and cylinders.

Thanks and Regards
Aakriti

Hello Aakriti,
What is the a sensor to simulate camera (depth and/or RGB) ?
RGB cameras can be simulated with the omnidirectional camera (on the foot-bot) and with the frontal perpective camera (on the khepera IV).
The current proximilty sensor gives 16 output values. Most lidars give 512 output values. Is there a way to increase the resolution of the proximilty sensor in argos ?
I think your best bet is to use the Khepera IV robot. Full package here: https://github.com/ilpincy/argos3-kheperaiv
Can I import enviroments/layout in argos? Currently I make the complete environment in .argos file by using boxes and cylinders.
We currently don't have an explicit way to do that, but it wouldn't be hard to do. Just lack of time on my side.
I made ARGoS.
