Title : An Interactive Co-Simulation System for Virtual and Real Robots using the Player Project


An interactive co-simulation system for virtual and real robots is proposed in this paper. The proposed system is based on the Player project which is open source software for robotics research, which enables the rapid development of algorithms for robotic systems. The proposed co-simulation system seamlessly combines real-world robots and virtual robots in a single simulation environment so that the simulation of multi mobile robots can be more realistically performed. By using the system, robots in real-world and robots in virtual-world can interact with each other. The system has been successfully tested in an experiment with 2 real-world robots interacting with 20 virtual robots.
