Simulating a Camera with a Pan Tilt Unit

Hey there,

is there a simple way to have a pan tilt unit on my 4 wheeled robot? I have read some comments that indicated that this is possible in Gazebo, but I was not able to locate the correct plug-in. Perfect would be something like a pan platform with a camera o top which can be tilted (because this is how my real robot looks like). However, for my tests it would suffice if I would be able to just turn the camera (so just pan - no tilt). So far I tried to use the "Planar Move Plugin" on the camera_link, but with this the robots skid steering drive plug-in was not able to move the robot anymore. I guess you cannot use those two plug-in's in one file.

Thanks for any suggestions. Marcus
