What’s new in MORSE 0.6?
- Compatibility with Blender from 2.59 to 2.64a.
- MORSE is now compatible with Windows 32 and 64 bit. Thanks to Markus Sander
for providing the patches and testing
- The ‘morse’ executable has slightly different options now. run ‘morse -h’ for
- Added support for ‘no color’ and ‘reverse colors’ log output.
- Added support for specifying the geometry of the simulator window.
- Unit-tests coverage improved
- MORSE (core, ie with only socket support) is now packaged in Debian (and
- Possibility to configure and display the view from a simulated camera inside
the Blender screen
- Reset the position of the global camera (CameraFP) by pressing F8
- Major rewriting of the IMU sensor and odometry sensor, which now returns more
precise datas. While here, add some modifiers to allow more realistic
behaviour of such sensors.
- New differential drive actuator associated to the previously mentioned
robots, called ‘v_omega_diff_drive’. It converts a given v, omega into left
and right wheel speeds
- Waypoint actuator can be configured to give target destination also in the Z
axis. Useful for helicopters and submarines
- Several models for quadrotors, including more or less realistic controls
(using waypoints, stabilized fly model or directly in force). ROS support
rely on ASCTEC messages.
- New more physically realistic robots: Segway RMP 400 and Pioneer 3-DX. Thanks
to David Hodo and Pierrick Koch for their work on the physics simulation
- B21 robot model
- New textured model for the Yamaha R-Max helicopter
- Simple model of a submarine robot, along with an underwater environment
- Several behaviour fixes in the human control mode
- Human avatar can now be correctly placed in the scene using the Builder API
- New tutorial to learn how to control the human avatar
- Documentation of simulation of multiple humans
- Kinect-based control of the human in the simulator
- Corrections to the bounding boxes of buildings in outdoor scenarios. Also
added textures to the buildings
- Dependencies on Blender Python API are now wrapped in a single file
- Lots of improvements on ROS compatibility. Many new tutorials with detailed
explanations, including an update ROS navigation tutorial.
- Corrections to YARP middleware, allowing it to export data stored as Python
- Improvements to the multi-node architecture using HLA. Including new
tutorials and documentation
- Updated ROS support for Fuerte compatibility
- Make table of contents of the components with images
- Add methods in builder to configure UTM coordinates and temperature in the
scene. Previously in the Scene_Script_Holder
